Horrible Harriet lives at school and has a short-sighted teacher who can't see when she is naughty. She keeps her teachers in a locked room in the basement and forces them to do her homework for her. So far so good. Then Athol Egghead joins her class and Harriet's natural naughtiness finds a new avenue of expression. A free-spirited and wholehearted celebration of the eccentric, this is a delightful book for all young children.
