From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-4-The children in room 3B want to know why the school library is closed. Their teacher isn't giving away any secrets, but Horrible Harry and his friend Doug, the narrator, have the inside track: Harry's grandmother is providing a special cake for some unknown occasion, and the boys are determined to get some information from her. Unfortunately, Harry's mischievous cat, The Goog, was in Grandma's truck when she drove to school. When he runs away, he leads Harry and Doug on a chase that takes them to all of the places that students are not supposed to go: specifically the teachers' lounge and the boiler room. Finally, all is well: The Goog is caught and taken home, and Doug and Harry learn that the party is for their teacher, who is getting married. Kline does a good job of maintaining a sense of adventure and a hint of danger as the boys head into forbidden places. Fans will be pleased with this newest installment in the series. Funny black-and-white drawings appear throughout this easy chapter book.-Lynda S. Poling, Long Beach Public Library, CA
