Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Kirkham Martin
Reminiscent of Nate the Great, third grader Harry puts on his version of a Sherlock Holmes' hat to solve the mystery behind the selection of winners in a cafeteria prize give-away. Harry's sense of fun and adventure never falters even through a ketchup war, moments of self-doubt, and a classmate's betrayal. To solve the mystery Harry must apply a famous number pattern, but first the young detective must rediscover what it is! Woven into this well-plotted story are facts about the sense of smell, healthy eating habits, and the application of patterns to problem solving. The humor, fast pace, and engaging characters will keep young readers turning the pages. Text is interspersed with about three ink drawings per chapter to support young readers. A short bio about the mathematician Leonard Fibonacci is also included as back matter. This selection from the "Horrible Harry" series would work well to introduce a unit about the sense of smell, a math unit about using patterns to solve problems, or for reading instructions with a follow-up lesson about cause and effect, making this book a great choice for libraries or elementary schools.

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.

    more from this reviewer

    Another fine addition to the series

    An orange star is put under the milk carton of one lucky student in class each day, which can be used to buy one special item in the school store. How does the school cook choose which tray to star each day? She says she uses a special set of numbers she just learned about in her college math class. Harry is determined to figure out the code, convinced that if he wears his deerstalker "detective" hat, he will solve this case. The stories are never profound, but they are fun stories for kids past readers but not yet up to novels, and put in plugs for good manners, safety, how to be a good friend, and to see teachers as people, too.
