I was so excited to see a sequel to Harriet the Spy that I grabbed the book off the shelf without reading the name of the author Big mistake I don t know what this lady thinks she s doing, but apparently she s taking a crap on my childhood I feel like an idiot, getting really mad about a children s book, but I m pretty sure I m justified in my OUTRAGE.

I feel a certain loyalty to Harriet, since the original Harriet the Spy was one of my favorite books as a kid I had my doubts about the two sequels, each written by different authors after Louis Fitzhugh s too soon death, but both did a fairly good job of staying true to the spirit of Harriet.Harriet Spies Again feels a little empty, as there is very little spying, note taking or interaction with Harriet s friends, and the whole Ole Golly reunion falls kind of flat Also, it may have been less ob [...]


Cherie

Great story I loved Harriet as a kid and this book brought all of it back for me I listened to the audio version narrated Anne Bobby.

I have a strong love for Harriet M For Middle Welsh She has quickly become one of my favorite literary characters Not to mention Roserita was a STUPENDOUS addition to the books She balances Harriet very well and I LOVE HER And I loved the return of Ole Golly And Cook And Sport Basically everyone in this book was so much fun Harriet was also creating a timeline of her life and it was fun seeing her reflect on the big moments Everyone needs these in their life also am I the only one who wants an a [...]

This book has things going for it I ll admit that It is clearly written by someone with a lot of love for Harriet the Spy There are moments, passing flashes, where the author manages a funny moment or turn of phrase which almost, almost echoes the charm of the original It was well paced and absorbing enough to keep me reading from start to finish There are many excesses and violations against the spirit of the original which the author mercifully failed to commit Here is what s wrong with it 1 A [...]

I wasn t sure what to think of this book, going in A different author from the original Written in 2002 instead of the 1960s How were they going to reconcile the changes in technology, womens rolls and pop culture I was pleased with the result Harriet is still young enough that a lot of technology talk was avoided The characters of Cook and Ole Golly were true to the original book, without being overtly sexist The new author is obviously a huge Harriet the Spy fan and I enjoyed the story althoug [...]


Lars Guthrie

I m shocked but I really liked Harriet Spies Again Shocked because it s an ersatz Harriet created in 2002, nearly 40 years after the original and over 30 years after Louise Fitzhugh s death A student of mine had to pick a classic to read, defined as being over 25 years old and still in print, and this somehow slipped under the wire I was prepared for disappointment, but Helen Ericson really captures the spirit and flavor of Harriet the Spy, and produces a work just as charming as it is The uniqu [...]


Donna

Let s just say this crapped all over my childhood Regardless of good intent, Harriet is not Harriet and Ole Golly is not Ole Golly and this is a farce Harriet does not beg for hugs or talk about wanting to be a spy She IS a spy Ole Golly doesn t discuss greeting card sentiment It is beneath her She discusses literature, and without calling attention to it Mr Waldenstein would NEVER have consistently lied and gambled Harriet would not have gotten dumber as she got older Come on, people.If you lik [...]


Melissa

Biggest problems I had with this book Ole Golly did not act like Ole Golly Harriet M Welsch did not act like herself either.


Maria

My 9 year old daughter loved it.

With the approval of Louise Fitzhugh s author of Harriet the Spy estate, Ericson revisits the life of Harriet M Welsch and the executors trust was well placed An author s note reports that Ericson became a fan when this self styled young spy first appeared in 1964, and her affection for the feisty character comes through in this new misadventure.When Harriet s parents leave Manhattan to spend three months in Paris, her former nanny, Ole Golly, returns from Montreal where she had moved with her n [...]


Samantha

Oh my Well, Harriet is quite the grown up middle schooler discussing such subjects as kissing, romance and pregnancy There is a drug reference in the book as well and it shocked me to say the least It started out very slowly, I practically paced waiting for Ole Golly to come back and when she did I was sorry she did come back The lack of dialogue between Harriet and Ole Golly is unnerving and horribly wrong Her mother changes from a caring and concerned parent from the first book to a flake who [...]

I read Harriet the Spy when I was young, and so enjoyed it that I ve read it again and again through the years I guess Harriet kinds of reminds me of the kind of little girl I would like to have beentally independent and brassy She is such a fun little tomboy to follow in her exploits with her friends and as she spies on neighbors nearby as she documents in great detail in her notebooks her perspective of each of their lives.This new book, Harriet Spies Again takes me back to that first book, an [...]

Well I read this story around the same time I read Harrie the spy , because it was a 2 stories in 1 book My mum read this book to me when I was younger and then I read by myself a bit later, but this book had a big influence on me and I loved the whole idea of Harriet s Spy routes and it inspired me to start writing my own journal, which I continue to do until this day Now I can t remember to much about this book, as I was quite young but I do remember that I really enjoyed the story and Harriet [...]

Harriet Spies Again amuses as a child tries to interpret and solve grownup problems First conclusions are bigger than life, but solutions are simple and effective than an adult could ever manage Harriet is an unforgettable character I first read about her in Harriet the Spy, over twenty years ago , and I couldn t wait to read of her adventures The characters who support her add just as much charm to the story This book s impact goes beyond the story itself as I find myself inspired to create l [...]

I m amazed that an author can pick up another author s story and continue it so well I really liked the new character added, and, while I saw a lot of the twists coming, they were still fun to read My only complaint about this book is that I wasn t sure what year it was At times I thought it was still the 1960s, but other times it seemed to be at least 20 years later I think that s an effect of what this new author was trying to do and it didn t really take away from the story, but it did distra [...]


Cate

Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh ,is one of my all time favorite books In this companion novel, Helen Ericson does a good job of channeling Harriet s personality and the overall feel of the original However, I didn t particularly like that Ole Golly came back in this book the other book had ended with Harriet growing up and realizing that she didn t need Ole Golly any There s a bit of a mystery surrounding her return that kept me reading, but overall I wasn t amazed by the conclusion.


Donna

Fun, enjoyable, and not quite the same I can understand why it won an Edgar for kid s lit, but I really missed the stories from Harriet s spy route and wanted to hear about what she had discovered on her own At least she hadn t outgrown tomato sandwiches I did enjoy Harriet s foray into religion and the comments from Cook at Thanksgiving about having a normal life.On to Sport and The Long Secret


Jprichert

This book was ok The first 100 pages were not all that great and I decided to stop because I could not go any further I don t really recommend this to someone who loves to get sucked into books The only part I read was a dragged on story of how Harriet spied on a couple of people The only part I did like was when Harriet got stuck in the house and met another girl and they became friends but that was it All of it pretty boring.


Annette

I enjoyed this continuation of Harriet the Spy with the familiar characters from that book and other books by Louise Fitzhugh this new book is by Helen Erickson A new character, Annie she uses different aliases , is introduced and presumably further developed in a subsequent book The character of Harriet is the same, but the book feels different, maybe because it s written by another author or maybe because I am an adult now, not a child.


Gauri

I picked this book up a few years after reading the first one, and had no idea this was by a different author But it didn t read any differently because I was young, and damn, I loved it I thought that was the end of the series, and was saddened, but now I realize that this is the first of a series Wow I guess I have to revisit my childhood


Candace

Just when I d thought Harriet was gone forever, with the passing of Louise Fitzhugh, she s back again, Ole Golly mysterious as ever in her ever growing tweed coat Harriet finds the most delightful secret ever While a mid grade novel, a must read for all writers or writing aspirants You ll not be disappointed Helen Ericson, has kept Harriet s, Sport s, and of course, Ole Golly s true voices.


Kyle Wendy Skultety (gimmethatbook.com)

Nothing at all like the real Harrietd that s a shame I don t think she would have acted like this at all It s very hard to capture the original character, no matter how much you may have loved her when you were growing up Otherwise, it was a pleasant little read, if you can ignore your preconceived notions.


Megan

Eh Part of the point for me of the first book was that you can move on after a disappointment Getting Ole Golly back isn t allowing Harriet to have that accomplishment That said, 9 year old Tim enjoyed it.


Cindy

This is a sweet little story with a predictable plot otherwise, I would have given only one star The characters bear NO resemblance to Louise Fitzhugh s wonderful creation in the original Harriet the Spy.


Hope Gomez

This book is about Harriet spying on her nanny Ole Golly when she returns after being married Harriet wonders why she has returned without her husband, so she decides to get information on this mystery Unexpectedly, everything she has thought, is turned around in a huge surprise.


Annalisa

One of my students said I reminded her of Harriet the Spy, so I thought, ah what the heck Cute story it s a 4th grade reading level but with REALLY impressive vocabulary If I were still teaching elementary school, I would include this in my curriculum


Kate

This was really cool.


Beth Kaminske

This sequel t0 Harriet the Spy, was written by someone else and is nowhere near as good as the original It was not anywhere near as interesting and was a struggle to finish.
