Publisher's Summary

Horrible Harry thinks he's the world's second-best detective (second to Sherlock Holmes, of course), but the rest of the kids in Room 3B aren't as sure. So he's determined to prove himself by solving the latest mystery at South School: a cafeteria contest has just begun, and Harry wants to figure out how to win it. He knows Mrs. Funderburke is using a mathematical code to decide each day's winners, but can he crack the code before Mary tattles on him? Or will his private-eye days come to a horrible end?

The Kids Love Harry, This One Seems Thin

We have loved Horrible Harry since stumbling across the Christmas one in our local library's audio section. The antics of the kids are mainly truly kidlike, and there are rarely black and white villains and good-guys. My kids (4, 5-1/2 now) are entertained by Harry stories for many, many listenings, and I find myself able to hang with a 5th or 8th listen as well. Harry himself is so imperfect but likeable.

I do wish that the gender-roles were not quite so stereotypical and prominent in these books. Also, although the character Sid is complex - he's often Harry's bad guy, but he's not all-bad, and sometimes Sid and Harry make peace - I haven't yet encountered the same complexity to the character Mary.

This particular Horrible Harry seems shorter and simpler than the others, and there are weaknesses in the plot: why don't any of the other kids look up the sequence when it's mentioned by name?
