Grade 2-4–Another delightful Horrible Harry episode begins when Miss Mackle's students become bored after many days of bad weather and indoor recess. However, things get exciting when Harry proposes that Room 3B solve the mystery of the locked closet, which has been closed off for nearly 50 years. Harry gets his classmates and some of the teachers to help out with the investigation, which leads to many surprises including the discovery of a hidden trap door, and what they think are real eyeballs. When the closet is finally opened, each student delights in newfound treasures of old comic books, 1950s children's classic stories, and some board games. Black-and-white illustrations are scattered throughout. Kline writes in a humorous style that rings true and her characters and realistic story have great appeal for reluctant readers, especially boys.–Kristina Aaronson, Henniker Community School, NH
