The Kids Love Harry

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 book should be listened-to before "Cracks the Code." I love the names of the characters, especially the adults, and the little details that make the adults seem more real, not just peripheral cartoons.

Good for ages 5-8.

I personally haven't listened to the Horrible Harry audiobooks but have read several to my kids. Harry isn't actually as horrible as you might expect from the descriptions.

My 6 year old and 8 year old love to listen to these books at bedtime. My MIL who teaches grade two also recommends them to her students.
