Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This adventurous children's reder tells the story of a boy named Harry and the journeys he and his fellow classmates from Room 3B share. We learn about these daring adventures from the writing of Doug, Harry's best friend. In one of the tales, Harry and his class discover the impending marriage of their beloved teacher. This spurs Harry to take matters into his own hands and find out who the mysterious groom is. In addition to being enjoyable reading, this book also teaches important lessons (about curiosity and keeping secrets, for instance) from which both children and adults can learn. The book also features lists of animal facts created by the students from Room 3B, including odd pieces of information about exotic animals. These lists do add a lively touch to the overall book. 2006, Penguin Young Reader's Group, Ages 7 to 10.
—Ashley Young
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Gossip has it that Miss Mackle is engaged. But to whom? That question sparks a mystery among the students in room 3B, and Harry turns detective once again. He tracks down, and steals, a piece of engagement cake from the school library and announces to his classmates that the groom's name is on the cake. It's Mr. Marks. Harry's best friend, Doug, is disappointed in Harry for stealing, but doesn't tell on him. When Miss Mackle announces her engagement-to Mark Flaubert-Harry is embarrassed that he jumped to the wrong conclusion and confesses that he stole a piece of cake. Kline writes in an upbeat and humorous style that will appeal to beginning as well as reluctant readers. The illustrations are clear and focused, and complement the story line and characters. An appealing addition to the series.-Diane Eddington, Los Angeles Public Library Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

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.
