Dear Bookworm,
I love Harriet the Spy, and I read the "new adventures", too, by other authors. And, to tell the truth, I found them disappointing. I mean, it was so unlike Harriet! So, for all readers out there, I don't recommend the new books. It'll ruin the story!

booklovers forever!

Dear Annie,
Thanks for your comment! I agree, readers should stick with the original "Harriet" book. Do you think readers would enjoy the sequel by Louise Fitzhugh, "The Long Secret"?
Happy reading,
~~Bookworm~~

Hi again,
Yes, I think readers would like 'the long secret'. although it's not the same, it's still the same old characters as from the first book. plus it's the same style of Louise Fitzhugh's writing. But it's hard to beat the first "harriet" book, it's so good!
best,
annie
