Overview

Horrible Harry has caused a lot of trouble at school before, but he's never caused trouble like this. When Sid ruins an origami animal Song Lee made, Harry defends her by declaring triple revenge! No one knows when, where, or how, but Harry is going to get Sid back. Will it be on pajama day, when the kids wear their nightclothes to school? Will it happen in Room 3B? Or will Harry's ultimate revenge mean Sid is the only one not invited to Harry's ninth birthday party?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Chivalry is not dead, and it sure does not pay to mess with Harry or someone that he likes. When Sid squashes a beautiful origami preying mantis that Song Lee has made, Harry is determined that he will avenge the wrong. He has a crush on Song Lee and seeing how Sid hurt her feelings makes him see red. Harry is clever and he manages to embarrass Sid in ways that gets the message across without any physical harm. His first revenge not only makes Sid the goat, it also makes his class loose the contest for the extra recess. When the class is holding a pajama day, Harry announces that he sleeps in his underwear and Sid dares him to come to school in his sleepwear. Harry accepts on condition that Sid will hop around like a preying mantis if Harry does indeed wear his underwear. Harry outwits Sid and then goes for his final revenge by inviting everyone but Sid to his birthday party. Sid does make amends and it all ends well. Ah, if only most kids and adults could solve their issues in such clever ways then we would all be better off. The book is an easy read and Harry is no saint, but nine-year-old Harry can fend for himself. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
