    I really liked this book it is perfect for 5th to 6th graders, some of the words can be a little confusing but overall I really liked it and I think any other 5th or 6th grader would love it to.

      I think that Harriet the spy is a great book! I think that people should really read this book in their free time. I like this book because it is very exciting and that it is a mystery. I like that Harriet the spy is a mystery is because mysteries are my favorite kind of books. The bad thing about Harriet the spy is that Ole Golly (Harriets nanny) got married and left Manhattan and moved to Montreal Canada with her new husband. I still think that Harriet the spy is a great book!

        Harriet the Spy I am going to tell you about my opinion of Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh published in 1964. This book is about an eleven year old girl who goes to middle school and always carries around her journal where she writes things good and bad about everyone even her friends. In my opinion this is my favorite book. I like it because it gave me a lot of emotions like sadness, happiness, shock, anger and more. I think that fourth through sixth boys and girls would like this book. People who like to read chapter books and longer books would also like this book. This book is not the best for younger kids it has some big words and not many pictures.

          I really enjoy this book! Harriet the Spy is a brilliant classic that everyone should read. It talks about Harriet and her friend Sport. Harriet always says that you will only remember things if you write them down, so Harriet goes around spying on other people, learning their stories. Sport, of course, doesn't care, he just wants to be a ball player. You definitely should read this book, I recommend it highly.

            I love this book! It is a mystery. It is about a girl in 4th grade who loves to spy in people with her best friends. If you have read the book then you might want to see the movie on Netflix.

              Harriet the Spy was pretty good. It's got a couple of problems that Harriet has to deal with like her nurse, Ole Golly, who leaves with this man because they love each other. Life and everything is difficult and Harriet realizes that there is no reason to mourn, and that Ole Golly would appreciate Harriet to move on and to stop crying. Harriet also has a notebook where is keeps her observations in. Soon her friends get their hands on it and they turn against her. But Harriet learns more about how life doesn't always takes the turns you want them to, and that there's always a solution if you try hard enough.
