Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 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

'Horrible Harry Moves Up to Third Grade' by Suzy Kline is a book about Harry. Harry sometimes does horrible things. He sometimes is a little bit bad. Sometimes he is good. This book is about how Harry and Doug can't find their classroom. When they came upstairs, they found the room. Harry ran to give his teacher a big hug. His class could not find Sidney. The class was yelling, 'Sidney, Sidney.' there was no answer. Is Doug horrible? I like this book because Harry is funny. I like his friends. I like his school. His class is big. I like it.
