Synopsis: Horrible Harry makes second grade really excting. But, as Doug knows, being his best friend isn't always easy. Harry loves to do horrible things, like showing Song Lee his pet snake and making her scream, or pinning Sidney to the ground and making him say, "I love girls." Twice. Yet nobody can wait to see what Harry will be for Halloween, or what part he'll have in the school play. Even their teacher, Miss Mackle, is shocked when she finds out - because with Harry, you never know what is going to happen next! (from the back of the book)
Review: Directed at first and second grade readers, this is a quick, clever little book. The characters are amusing and real-to-life, charming and horrible and remind me of every kid I know in elementary school. I can see why this is a popular series to teach reading. The horribleness appeals to kids while adults get a chuckle or two out of the story. I recommend for anyone looking for a good series to teach reading.
