The "Harry" series by Zion and Graham remain monumental fixed images in the memories of my youth. I teach rhetoric in a Japanese university and stumbled upon these books in the children's reading section of our school's library. My seven-year-old daughter had fished "Harry by the Sea" out of one of the shelves and brought it to me. What a stroke of serendipity! In seeing the cover, I was immediately taken back to my youth. Wow! The story of Harry invited me so often to its pages that I can still remember all of the details. These books represent a brilliant blend of narrative and illustration. Graham's ability to capture the level of expression on the faces of the characters in pastels is amazing. Zion's introduction to simple, compound and complex sentences is a perfect primer for young readers. In their ability to arrest a young reader's attention, these works are easily on the level of Seuss's.

This book instantly became a bedtime favorite with each of my kids (boy and girl). Harry is adorable, and just enough mischief and adventure (and smelly seaweed!) to keep the little one's attention, and to keep young readers turning the pages. You'll love it too.

I have had this book since 1969 when I was 6 years old. It is a treasured part of my childhood! It tells the story of a lovable dog Harry and his family spending an eventful day at the beach. Children and adults alike will love this cuddly tale.

My daughter loves the Harry books and this one is her favorite right now. She loves the story of Harry turning into a sea monster and scaring all the people on the beach. She asks for it at bedtime every night. *Only negative note: She has picked up use of the phrase "the fat lady" based on one of the character descriptions.

There is something about continuing the tradition of reading the Harry Books to my grandchildren. They enjoy knowing that 'daddy' read these books when he was their age.

Harry gets into another of his adventures, this time turning into a seaweed monster at the beach. The illustrations are delightful and it's a fun read.

I read and loved all of the Harry books when I was a child. Harry is a delightful character- he's cute, full of personality, usually well-intentioned, and prone to getting into ridiculous situations. The illustrations are adorable, too. These books still make me laugh when I come across them as an adult! I'd recommend them for any child, whether they love reading or hate it.
