Harriet The Spy Essay
In book 2 I think Harriet has mixed feelings. She is often rude, cruel, and impatient. Even through that she is still old Harriet. She even tries to apologize to Sport and Janie!!
Harriet is very impatient with Dr. Wagner. When she goes to his office she thinks about what his office looks like. A closet full of games, a couch, and a spinet. When he gives Harriet a notebook she starts writing like there's no tomorrow.
FUNNIEST NOSE I'VE EVER SEEN. RUNS RIGHT DOWN THE MIDDLE OF HIS FACE. HE REMINDS ME SOMEWHAT OF PINKY WHITEHEAD BUT NOT AS REPULSIVE. HE HAS RED HAIR AND FUNNY TEATH. THEY ARE SORT OF YELLOW AND LONG. THIS OFFICE SMELLS OF CIGARS AND CHALK. I BET HE PLAYS WITH THOSE TOYS AFTER EVERYONE LEAVES.
When Harriet tries to appoligize to sport and Janie disaster strikes. She makes Janie spill some king of liquid by startling her. When Sport's turn comes Harriet is more nervious then before. At his house Sport is very happy because his father is getting one of his books published.
Harriet "Becomes very mean" and wants to do mean things to everyone.
MARION HAWTHORINE: FROGS. PUT ONE IN HER
DESK. A SNAKE WOULD BE BETTER.
RACHEL HENNESSY: HER FATHER. ASK HER WHERE HE WENT.
LAURA PETERS: HER HAIR. CUT IT OFF. OR MAKE A BALD SPOT.
PINKY WHITEHEAD: MEAN LOOKS. THAT'S ALL HE NEADS.
CARRIE ANDREWS: TELL HER FATHER SOMETHING TERRIBLE ABOUT HER WHICH IS A LIE.
BETH ELLEN HANSEN: HATES TO BE HIT. HIT HER.
JANIE : BREAK HER LITTLE FINGER.
SPORT: CALL HIM A SISSY AND TELL EVERYONE HE READS COOKBOOKS.
BOY WITH THE PURPLE SOCKS: ??
That is what Harriet writes in her notebook.
I think Harriet should have been less mean to her friends event though they were mean to her. Well it's a shame we can't take someones "mean gene" and replace it. Or can we? I know one thing's for sure Harriet is Harriet and that will never change!
