Overview

Horrible Harry has always loved insects, especially digging in the dirt for them. And, recently, he's discovered a new favorite: earwigs! But when he tries to tell his friends about these critters, only Song Lee listens. So when Miss Mackle assigns groups in Room 3B to act out different fairy tales, Harry sees an opportunity to teach the class about his favorite bug. Will they think his play is hilarious...or horrible?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Harry is horrible in many ways, but his love of bugs tends to freak out a number of his friends, especially Sid, who is truly frightened by them. Harry has been digging in the dirt and found a dead earwig that he has named Edward. He wraps Edward in a tissue with the intention of holding a burial service. In the meantime, Harry's class has been directed to come up with a play based on a fairy tale. He and his usual group of friends decide to do a variation on the Goldilocks and the Three Bears. They have their usual problems, controlling Harry, deciding which of the girls will be Goldilocks, which Harry actually is instrumental in resolving, and then putting on the play. The entire play is printed at the end of the book, in case kids want to act it out themselves. Kids in early elementary school will certainly relate to Harry and his friends, and since this is part of a series, they will probably want to read the other two dozen books. Parents, teachers, and librarians be prepared! Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Meet the Author

Suzy Kline, the author of nineteen previous Horrible Harry books and four books about Song Lee, lives in Willington Connecticut with her husband, Rufus. 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.
