Horrible Harry Moves up to Third Grade (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)by Suzy Kline, Frank Remkiewicz
Funny, easy-reader stories about friends, school adventures, and a creative, nonconformist boy named Harry.
School Library JournalGr 2-3-Not much has changed since second grade: Harry is gross and horrible, and he's still Sidney's sworn enemy. When Sidney is frightened by Harry's pet spider and kills it, war breaks out between the two boys, with their friend Doug caught in the middle. Doug, however, has other problems, most notably the proposed field trip to the Old New-Gate Prison and Copper Mine. His fear of the mine threatens to prevent him from going on the excursion, but Harry is there to help. The themes of fears and friendship are nicely blended as this beginning chapter book moves quickly to its exciting conclusion. The inclusion of an eerie ghost story, some of Harry's pranks, and realistic teasing between the children make this an enjoyable read.-Linda Bindner, formerly at Athens Clarke County Library, GA
