Suzy Kline, the author of nineteen previous Horrible Harry books and four books about Song Lee, lives in Willington Connecticut with her husband, Rufus. Suzy and Rufus have been married for thirty-eight years. They met in the state where they both grew up: California. Suzy grew up in Berkeley and Rufus in Sacramento. Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.
Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren: Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96. She dedicated her most recent book, Horrible Harry Takes the Cake to her.
Suzy and Rufus enjoy attending UConn football and basketball games, and Suzy uses the UConn library as a reference for her writing facts.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-Kline's latest addition to the "Horrible Harry" series (Viking) is a natural extension of the previous books. Song Lee, introduced in Song Lee in Room 2B (1993), is back, as are the other now familiar kids in Miss Mackle's class. Here, when her hamster sneaks out of its cage and embarks on a tour of South School, the class pulls together and launchs a poster campaign to track it down. When the custodian finally rescues the exhausted animal from the flooded basement, the entire school cheers with happiness and relief and the children in Room 2B learn a valuable lesson in caring and responsibility. There are fewer laughs here than in the earlier titles, but there is more emotion. In all, this is a solid read for the beginning chapter-book set.
