Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

After an altercation with her mother over picking up her toys and rude behavior, Harriet, a young raccoon, decides to run away from home. Packed and on her way, Harriet briefly encounters her grandma, who wishes her well and asks her to promise to write every day. Next, Harriet finds her papa in the kitchen, tastes his spaghetti sauce, which happens to be her favorite, has second thoughts, but continues out the door anyway. After a discussion and mutual apologies with her mother, all is forgiven, and Harriet and her family pitch in and help one another with their various chores before sitting down to a spaghetti dinner. The raccoon family and their comfortable home in the trunk of a tree are pleasantly depicted in watercolor, acrylic, and gouache. The text is simple enough for children who are slightly beyond the beginning-to-read stage, which is precisely the age group that might benefit most from this subtle lesson on interpersonal relations. Preschool-Grade 2. --Randall Enos

Format: Hardcover
My seven year-old grandson doesn't like change. He has definite opinions and you can't rush, cajole, or fool him. He takes his time. He doesn't like to pick up his many creative projects, which are usually strewn across the living room. While he is consistently one of the most prolific readers (both "read to" and now, reading for himself) he has a limited repertoire of much beloved and extremely reread favorites. The day I tried to introduce "Harriet's Had Enough" to him he said he wasn't ready for it. This is his stock answer. Might as well give up. I asked him if he minded if I looked at it as I had read the author's other books and really wanted to see her new book. This was fine as long as I didn't expect him to listen. He noticed, though, from the cover illustration, that the character is a raccoon. Big points, but not enough to win an audition.

I read one page aloud, the first page that starts "One day Harriet and her mama had a big fight". I swear I saw his ears swivel. When I read that the fight was about cleaning up toys, he was hooked. That night, he allowed me to read him the whole book as one of his bedtime books. After the first two pages he sat up and began to follow the pictures and words, he laughed, he gaffawed, he snorted. He grew silent as the message soaked in. At the end he told me it was "cool" in that awe-filled tone he uses for fart machines and beating his sister at Super Mario.

This is a great book for boys and girls, starring a protagonist with whom they will identify. Importantly, children learn that even when emotions heat up, on the part of children or parents, anger doesn't mean that love is lost.
As Jake says,way cool.

When Harriet argues with her mother, she decides to pack her bag and run away. But, Harriet keeps running into someone from her family: first, her grandmother, and then her father, and finally, her mother. Slowly, one by one, Harriet's family members convince her to come back home. Together, they work to get their household chores done, and celebrate with a spaghetti dinner. Children ages 3-6 will relate to Harriet and the characters in this story, learning how to solve family squabbles.
