Gr. 2-4. This simple chapter book, fourteenth in the series about Horrible Harry, is one of the best, with a lively sense of the third-grade classroom and playground and with a true conflict that builds to a tense climax. Horrible Harry is wearing a necklace to school with a mini-microscope, and he tells his friends they can use it at recess to see a secret kingdom of mushrooms. But to do that, they have to break a school rule and go under the playground fence into the mud. Are they going to fib to their nice teacher? Should they own up? Using a light touch, Kline weaves in the characters' anger and remorse; she also makes science a fun part of the story, including some fascinating facts about horrible, slimy fungi, what they look like, and where to find them--in the mud and at the lunch table.

The problem starts at recess time when Harry tries to get his classmates to break the rules. He wants them to see the mud gremlins.
I liked this story because even though Harry does bad stuff, he is still funny. All second graders would like Horrible Harry and all his adventures. Some other books you could read are: Horrible Harry and the Secret, Horrible Harry and the Green Slime, Horrible Harry and the Christmas Surprise, Horrible Harry in Room 2B, and Horrible Harry and the ant invasion.
I found that this book was funny and suspenseful altogether. My students were begging me to read more. In this book we find Harry wearing a mini-microscope necklace to school. Horrible Harry tells his classmates that they can use during recess time to find a secret mushroom kingdom. However knowing the playground rules, will Horrible Harry and his buddies break the rule and outside the fence to look in the mud? The author engages the readers in suspense, climax, and the issue of right and wrong.
