Author(s): Leigh Hobbs (Illustrator)
Horrible Harriet makes a new friend . . . but is that good news? Horrible Harriet lives at school in a nest, high up in the roof. She is very helpful in class, but the other kids think she is mean, nasty, cruel, and wicked Harriet has found herself a new friend--Mr. Chicken. The fact that Mr. Chicken terrorizes the entire school doesn't matter a bit, as Horrible Harriet knows how to handle him and thereby becomes popular at last . . . for the afternoon, at least. This gloriously illustrated picture book will have children and adults laughing out loud.
