Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Best friends Harry and Doug triumph in each of the five scenarios in this sequel to Horrible Harry in Room 2B. They overcome an argument that arises when the class has to choose "secret pals"; put on the best anti-smoking skit in the class; and lead the others in putting homemade spider webs up around the school in commemoration of Charlotte's Web. Despite the genuinely childlike situations it draws on, the book is a disappointment: too often the humor fizzles. The only laugh-out-loud moment comes when the principal volunteers to be Doug's assistant in a show-and-tell presentation; unbeknownst to Mr. Cardini, Doug plans to demonstrate how to spike hair. Other intended jokes fall flat or come at the expense of other classmates, giving a few of the stories a vaguely mean-spirited tinge. Illustrations not seen by PW. Ages 7-10.

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-- Room 2B is every child's dream. In these five short, easy-to-read stories of classroom life, Harry, Doug, and their friends enjoy Christmas, performing anti-smoking skits, and reading together. (Teachers should love the idea of celebrating Charlotte's Web with an invasion of paper spiderwebs!) The teacher, the principal, and the librarian are caring, understanding, and adaptable. It's refreshing to find adult authority figures portrayed so warmly. The principal doesn't balk at volunteering as a model in the class speech lesson--even when Doug's demonstration turns out to be how to spike one's hair. Harry's demonstration is "green slime," a kind of Silly Putty concoction made with cornstarch, water and food coloring. The recipe actually works, which will delight experiment-minded readers. For a slightly younger audience than the author's "Herbie Jones" series (Putnam), this is one school story which rates an A+. --Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, Ill.

Once again horrible Harry is out and about learning and having fun. In this book, Harry learns about what it means to be a friend. He also has to teach about the dangers of smoking. The final chapters of this book are pure fun.
My son is at the difficult age of 7. He is ready to give up simple picture books, and Dr. Seuss but isn't ready for Harry Potter books. Horrible Harry books make for a good transition.

My 7-years old daughter Andrea wrote this review:

This 4-chapter book by Suzy Kline is about Harry who is full of horrible ideas. Chapter 1 is about secret pals each student in the class picked for learning about writing and new friendship. At the end Harry learned true friendship. The next chapter is about Harry leading the group in a skit showing the danger of smoking. In Chapter 3 Harry and the class, after reading Charlotte's Web, put cobwebs in the principal's office and all over the school. In the final chapter Harry demonstrated to others how to make green slime. Sydney spiked the principal's hair!

I Recommend this book to all 2nd graders.

Horrible Harry and the Green Slime is about Harry and his class needing to do a science experiment. They had to show their experiment in front of the class. Harry made green slime and the kids thought it was cool. Then Harry gave it to the librarian who gave it to her husband because he loves science. I would recommend this book because Horrible Harry is always mischievious and that makes reading the story fun and interesting.

We LOVE horrible harry books. I think I like them as much as my boys. They are clever and well thought out. Perfect books for elementary school students that are just starting to read chapter books.

My son is newly 8 and in the second grade. He approaches his school reading assignments a little reluctantly--a combination of being self conscious about reading out loud, being caught in the too young/too old range for many books, and by being stubborn about not liking what his big brother likes and is good at (my oldest is a reading machine). Basically a stubborn boy my youngest one is :).

In any case, one thing my oldest has decided he DOESN'T like is the idea of a Kindle. So, being a sneaky mom I downloaded a couple books onto my old and trusty Kindle and lo and behold, suddenly it's okay and fun for my youngest one to read. One of the books I purchased was a Horrible Harry and oh my--what a great choice! My son adores the stories and adores reading them on the Kindle. The chapter/stories are just the right length for each evening and have enough challenging words to be good for him, yet he can do a great job reading as well.

We now have several of the Horrible Harrys and I couldn't be happier with them.

This book has four chapters. In the first chapter the class picked secret pals. In the second chapter the principal found a cigarette under a cafeteria table. After that the class drew posters about the bad effects of smoking. In the third chapter they read Charlotte's Web. They put cobwebs all over the school. In the last chapter Harry taught the class how to spike their hair. My favorite chapter is The Demonstration. Why? Because I would like to give a demonstration to my class. I think other kids my age will like this book because it has many funny parts.
