Overview

The kids in Room 3B are holding a Sharing and Caring Tag Sale to earn money for charity. Song Lee and Ida are selling friendship bracelets, Doug is selling books, and Sid is selling delicious, fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. But something else is on Harry's mind: his grandmother is having money trouble, and Harry wants to help. So he comes up with a plan to raise money for her. The problem is that Harry doesn't realize his plan involves stealing from the class's charity collection! How can Doug stop his friend from becoming a horrible thief? Could the answer come from one of Sid's delicious cookies?

Doug is worried about his best friend, Harry. Harry is acting strange. He is not playing kickball, he does not get excited about the new tarantula book, and he does not eat his favorite school hot lunch. Something is wrong, but it takes Doug a while to get Harry to explain. Harry's grandma runs a bakery from her kitchen and her stove is broken. They have no money to repair it and, now, no income. Harry is desperate. He decides to keep some of the money he collects from the class charity fund raiser to go toward the repair. Doug figures out a way to show Harry that would be stealing. Harry gives all the money to the charity; he and Doug share the cookie they bought together; and Mary comes up with a solution for the broken stove. The pen-and-ink drawings depict the emotions of the characters well. The last page features the recipe for Sidney's Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies. A thought-provoking story for young readers. Part of the "Horrible Harry" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.

Suzy and Rufus have been married for thirty-eight years. They met in the state where they both grew up: California. Suzy grew up in Berkeley and Rufus in Sacramento. Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.

Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren: Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96. She dedicated her most recent book, Horrible Harry Takes the Cake to her.

Suzy and Rufus enjoy attending UConn football and basketball games, and Suzy uses the UConn library as a reference for her writing facts.
