Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4–Another delightful Horrible Harry episode begins when Miss Mackle's students become bored after many days of bad weather and indoor recess. However, things get exciting when Harry proposes that Room 3B solve the mystery of the locked closet, which has been closed off for nearly 50 years. Harry gets his classmates and some of the teachers to help out with the investigation, which leads to many surprises including the discovery of a hidden trap door, and what they think are real eyeballs. When the closet is finally opened, each student delights in newfound treasures of old comic books, 1950s children's classic stories, and some board games. Black-and-white illustrations are scattered throughout. Kline writes in a humorous style that rings true and her characters and realistic story have great appeal for reluctant readers, especially boys.–Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. Although the entries in Kline's popular chapter-book series about the kids in Room 3B aren't usually mysteries, this one turns the students, especially intrepid Harry, into amateur detectives. It's sleeting outside, and everybody is bored, bored, bored. When knock-knock jokes and the activities of ZuZu's guinea pig ("he's not even pooping!") grow stale, the kids look around for something else to occupy them. Harry finds it: the locked closet in Miss Mackle's classroom, which has remained closed for more than 40 years. What could be in there? Not even Mr. Skooghammer, who attended South School as a child, knows the answer. Meanwhile, in class, the kids learn about volcanoes, and Kline includes some appended volcano facts to add bulk to the fictional story. Fun and funny, with a credible "mystery," and Kline is right on the mark when it comes to both her audience and her characters. Stephanie Zvirin

The Horrible Harry series is very good. I would recommend all the books. They are very easy to relate to and understand. The only thing I didn't care for is that the number of pages listed for this book is 80, it is below 70 pages. I ordered this book to match the number of pages for required reading for my daughter's school and found this book was now not eligible for her book list.
