Reviews

Gr 2-4‘Once again, Harry shows that he has a great imagination. Here, he says that there are invisible purple people in Miss Mackle's classroom, but Mary knows there's no such thing. When Miss Mackle, who has been reading Alice in Wonderland, throws a tea party for the class, Harry decides to invite one of the purple people and pulls a prank to prove that they do indeed exist. Harry and his classmates form a wonderful group of characters. There is a certain respectful camaraderie within this circle of friends that is refreshing, and the author demonstrates a clear understanding of the ways of children. The youngsters are funny and intelligent, and readers will no doubt be tempted by Harry's mischievous ideas. Miss Mackle is depicted as an understanding teacher who shares in their camaraderie. Children will love this inventive addition to the "Horrible Harry" books and will look forward to more.‘Carrie A. Guarria, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY
