About 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.

Good book need to read
bekstrom on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
This book is a good example of realistic fiction. This story could easily take place in a school with students just like the ones who are reading the book. Students are able to imagine themselves in a specific situation without having to live it. The plot of the book is engagin, and relates to the studnets lives. It is applicable and different elements of the plot are doen seamlessly. It is easy to see how in the end our conflict is resolved, and in the meantime students reading this book are engaged in solving the code for themselves. I would use this book in an intermediate classroom. The type of media used is pencil.

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.
