I listened to the audiobook version of this book to determine if it was appropriate for my five-year-old to listen to.

There are a few parts that are borderline for that age group -- like when one of the kids is worried that if he falls off the rope, he'll smash his bones, or when Harry confronts a kid whom he suspects stole his Valentine's Day card, and it is implied that Harry wants to give him a pounding.

There are also few parts that I was pleasantly surprised about, like how the kids and teac

My children really enjoyed this book. It was especially fun reading it close to Valentine's Day. These books have all been quick, easy reads. They are funny. For an adult they are completely predictable and somewhat dull. However, sharing them with my children, I've found them to be a lot of fun, and even quite funny.

This book made me feel jealous of Harry because, while Harry was able to overcome his fear of heights and earn praise from his friends and his crush, I was never able to overcome my own fear of heights. However, it was a nice, light read.

My son Xavier read this to me. He is going into third grade and told me it was very funny. Harry learns a very important lesson in his opinion.

Loved this book. It was very fun to read with my guided reading group and I found that not only did they enjoy the book but it provided them with a lot of comprehension skills without a lot of instruction from me. The events that took place in the book was dramatic and more memorable so students were able to sequence and understand cause and effect in the story. Since the book was so easy to read and to recall, students were able to answer comprehension questions with little to no difficulty.
