Summary

Summary

Every Halloween Harry plays tricks on his classmates and dresses up as something scary or gross or both. He's been Count Dracula, a slimy snake and even the Loch Ness Monster. Everyone in Room 3B is waiting to see what Harry will be this year--and they're all in for a really big surprise! "There's laughs aplenty in the short snappy text--just the thing to turn new readers on to books."-- Booklist for Horrible Harry and the Green Slime

Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-3. Kline continues her entertaining grade-school series with a Halloween story rooted in Class 3B. Everyone comes in costume, but Harry is in plain clothes, this year, dressed as a detective, and soon there's a case for him to solve. Series fans will welcome the characters, including narrator Doug (who is Harry's best friend), Song Lee, and their warm teacher, Miss Mackle. Only classmate Mary comes across as less than likable; she's the arrogant, whining prima donna who has it coming when her costume prop is stolen. The thief is treated with sympathy, and Harry's detective work is delicious. There's a sense of a real classroom, where learning is almost as much fun as the tricks and treats. And, for new readers, here's a lively introduction to the mystery genre. --Hazel Rochman


School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-3-Harry's classmates in Room 3B know they can count on him to wear a really scary costume on Halloween. After all, he's been a slithery snake, the Loch Ness Monster, and Count Dracula in past years. When he arrives dressed in a suit and tie, they feel let down even after he explains that he is Sergeant Joe Friday of the LAPD. However, Harry's detective skills come in handy when Mary discovers that the pixie dust is missing from her costume accessories. Primary-grade humor and practical jokes, student science experiments, and mystery are sprinkled throughout the story. "Horrible Harry" fans as well as newcomers to the series will be amused with his Halloween antics in this chapter book for transitional readers.-Janie Schomberg, Leal Elementary School, Urbana, IL (c) Copyright 2010.
