Product Description

Amazon Review

More than 30 years before it was made into a movie, Harriet the Spy was a groundbreaking book: its unflinchingly honest portrayal of childhood problems and emotions changed children's literature forever. Happily, neither Fitzhugh's style has dated nor her themes become obsolete, and it is still recognized as one of the finest children's novels around. The fascinating story centres around an intensely curious and intelligent girl, Harriet, who literally spies on people and writes about them in her secret notebook, trying to make sense of life's absurdities. When her classmates find her notebook and read her painfully blunt comments about them, Harriet finds herself a lonely outcast. Fitzhugh's writing is astonishingly vivid, real and engaging, and Harriet, by no means a typical, lovable heroine, is one of literature's most unforgettable characters. (Ages 8 to 12) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
having read Harriet the spy as a cheeky 10 year old, i have never forgotten the magical effect it had on me. neither have my friends, one of whom was forced to dress up as a spy with me and observe and document all our neighbours' goings on and another who could hardly wait until the book club came around again in school to order this book that I had raved so much about. At 33 yrs old I am now ordering a hard copy for my 7 week old daughter whom we have aptly named Harriet.

I thought this book was brill at first I turned my nose up at it but once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. Harriet is a very funny but cheeky eleven year old child she goes on many adventures spying on people in her neighbourhood and writing bad things about them even her best friends Sport and Janie. Harriet does nothing but write in her notebook until one day she was playing in the park and she dropped her notebook then her friends found it and read it. Harriet was really embarrased and cross because not one good thing did she write about one of them except her maid Ole Golly.This book is full of adventure and it has made me want to read more of Louise Fizhugh's books

Harriet the spy
It is sure to be an interesting book with its own moral aspects. Harriet is girl from rich family living in the heart of New York, most of the time she spends with her governess and 2 school friends. She's got a special game - she plays with people around her, spying for them. She sees shortcomings of people and writes it in her notebook. She believes that it's what can help her to be a famous writer in future. Once she got a chance , she became an editor of school newspaper and decided to publish her sicret notebook. This situation helps Harriet to see the world agein and afresh, to see feelings of people who recently was only objects of spying.
This book has many thoughts of little Harriet about life, why people are so diffrent.

Format: Paperback
I found out about this book a couple of years ago, and ever since I've re-read it probably about forty times! It's so witty and intriguing, and the characters are complex, interesting and unique. I would definitely say this is one of my favourite books, and it's one of the only books that is good for all ages. I love Harriet the Spy and would fully recommend you read it. Only wish Louise Fitzurgh was still around so she could write some more...
