by | Read by Anne Bobby

Children Ages 8+ • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1964

Harriet wants to be a writer, so she writes down in her notebook everything she sees and hears on her daily "spy route." She innocently piles up details about her friends and neighbors. All is well until her notebook is discovered by her classmates and read aloud, and Harriet must deal with the consequences of her spying. In this reading Anne Bobby is especially adept at maintaining Harriet's kid voice, even though the novel is not told in the first person. She switches voices well, especially among the kids, so the readers can keep them straight. Beyond that, she keeps the pace of her reading moving along smoothly.
