Editorial Reviews

A New York Public Library''s 100 Great Children''s Books 100 Years selection

"This is the book that made me want to be a writer. [Harriet] was the first fictional female character I ever came across who privileged her own truth above the expectations put on her as a little girl."  -Anna Holmes for Bookish.com

"I don't know of a better novel about the costs and rewards of being a truth teller, nor of any book that made more readers of my generation want to become fiction writers. I love the story of Harriet so much I feel as if I lived it." -Jonathan Franzen, author of Freedom and The Corrections

"Harriet the Spy bursts with life."-School Library Journal

"The characterizations are marvelously shrewd."-The Bulletin

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
