Today’s book is Horrible Harry at Halloween by Suzy Kline. Here’s what it’s about:
Horrible Harry and his classmates all love Halloween. Everyone wears a costume to school-even Miss Mackle. Every Halloween Harry shocks his classmates with his scary costume. In kindergarten he was a bloody Count Dracula, in first grade he was the Loch Ness Monster, and in second grade he was a slithering snake. So everyone in Room 3B can’t wait to see what Harry is going to be this year-and they’re in for a really big surprise!
In the beginning you meet Harry who is able to create an even scarier costume every year. All the kids are wondering how he’ll outdo himself this year. I won’t spoil the story and tell you any more about Harry’s costume. I will say that the story turned and became a fun mystery.
I didn’t know this was a part of a series until I looked the book up. Apparently there are a bunch of books about Harry. Based on the other titles like Horrible Harry and the Green Slime and Horrible Harry and the Ant Invasion, this looks like a fun series. This is also a series for 7 and up that kids can read themselves.
My Rating: 3 out of 5 Scary Pumpkins
