Overview

Normally, Harry loves gym class, and is better than the rest of Room 3B at just about every activity. But he's dreading the newest challenge-the climbing rope-especially since Sid is great at it. At first, Harry isn't even willing to try out the rope. But when a special valentine that Song Lee makes for him goes missing, Harry has to conquer his fears to prove who took it. Will he be able to climb up the rope? Or will his Valentine's Day end horribly?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
Harry has two problems. The members of his class are all expected to climb the rope in gym and he is afraid of heights and a Valentine's Day card that Song Lee made for him is missing. Mr. Deltoid, the gym teacher shows the kids how to climb the rope and while he is at the top mentions that there is a hole big enough to put a hand in where the rope is attached. Sidney shows off as he climbs to the top of the rope without difficulty and finally, Harry must overcome his fear in order to determine who the culprit was who took the valentine and then to actually find the valentine. This is another amusing story about Harry and his friends. The illustrations are appealing and the book is just right for the reader who likes a bit of mystery along with an amusing story about a group of average kids facing the fears which can loom large in a young mind.
