Horrible Harriet

‘If Roald Dahl hadn’t had Quentin Blake to illustrate his books, he’d have loved Leigh Hobbs.’

Meg Sorensen

Horrible Harriet lives in a nest on the roof of her school, and keeps teachers chained in the cellar to do her homework.

The other children think she’s a monster. As she teases and tricks them when their near blind teacher Mr Boggles isn’t looking.

He thinks Harriet‘s good girl. But there is a surprise in store when Athol Egghead arrives in a hot air balloon.

 

In fact Harriet is like the school freak-friendless.
The Horrible Harriet books are about her search for friendship.

Written and illustrated by Leigh Hobbs and published by Allen & Unwin.
