Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3-Kline's latest addition to the "Horrible Harry" series (Viking) is a natural extension of the previous books. Song Lee, introduced in Song Lee in Room 2B (1993), is back, as are the other now familiar kids in Miss Mackle's class. Here, when her hamster sneaks out of its cage and embarks on a tour of South School, the class pulls together and launchs a poster campaign to track it down. When the custodian finally rescues the exhausted animal from the flooded basement, the entire school cheers with happiness and relief and the children in Room 2B learn a valuable lesson in caring and responsibility. There are fewer laughs here than in the earlier titles, but there is more emotion. In all, this is a solid read for the beginning chapter-book set.

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. In the latest easy chapter book about classroom 2B, the dialogue, characters, and first-person narrative capture the grade-school scene with gentle comedy. Song Lee brings her pet hamster, Yi, to school; someone leaves the cage open, Yi escapes, the whole school searches for him, and he's finally found. Kids will also enjoy the classroom bickering, what the students bring from home, and how they relate to one another as they learn and play. The teacher is wise, but her touch is light, just like this story. Hazel Rochman

I bought a bunch of the books from this Horrible Harry series, for a friend's 8 year old daughter who was exposed to them at her school. She loves every one of them & was super excited to get these books from us!

Format: Paperback
My son loved this book about Song Lee and her hamster. It included students my son found similar to his classmates. He felt the dialog and activities were humorous and still realistic. The book is approximately 50 pages long and divided into four chapters. The drawings are "grown up" and the handwritten/drawn posters, etc. are wonderful. I should mention that Song Lee is a recent arrival to the US and makes the usual English speaking errors. It is noted that her father speaks Chinese, Korean and French and is always correcting her English. My husband and I were not offended, but the more politically-correct may be. We are buying the rest of the series. Really recommend this book for girls and boys. The most difficult words in the book are "Frankenstein", "appeared" and "famous," so even though it is long, the words are not too difficult.

A Kid's Review on May 11, 2005
Format: Paperback
Song Lee And The Hamster Hunt is a asome story to read it .And its

asome because at the 3rd page of the story it said he looked like a tenes

ball and that bounced into an oil spill.And Mary said that he's been

through a lot and Horrible Harry is a very good book to people Suzy Kline is probably very happy that she wrote the story so the people who have red the story are very happy they red Horrible Harry.
