Harriet Dancing by Ruth Symes, illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church - review
Harriet Dancing by Ruth Symes, illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church
Hooray for Harriet!
Her turn-ons include: strawberries, worms, her fuzzy little friends, and dancing
Turn-offs: snotty butterflies
What a riot! A picture book in which the beautiful fluttery butterflies are the mean snobby jerks. They make poor hedgehog Harriet cry when they refuse to dance with her. She tells her friend Ivor, also a hedgehog, and they have their own dance party, which soon becomes so fun and unhinged that the butterflies ask to join in. Which Harriet, ever gracious, allows.
