Harry and Horsie
Katie Van Camp
HarperCollins Children’s Books (2009)
Reviewed by Cayden (age 5) and Max (age 3) Aures and Mom for Reader Views (6/09)
In “Harry and Horsie,” it is way past Harry’s bedtime but Harry isn’t the least bit tired. He decides to play with his Super Duper Bubble Blooper. The bubbles pick up his toys, including Horsie, and carry them away. Harry goes on a journey of the solar system in an attempt to find them.
The main idea of the “Harry and Horsie” is imaginative and fun. The retro illustrations are expressive and entertaining and my children enjoyed following Harry’s adventure!
Cayden: “Sometimes Max and I play in our room when we are supposed to be sleeping. We don’t have a Super Duper Bubble Blooper though! It picked up that boy’s things and they floated away. I wouldn’t want that to happen to my toys! He had to go super far to go get them. I liked the picture of the robot and the car in the bubbles.”
Max: “He made big bubbles and he had a rocket ship! That would be fun! I liked when he went fast on his rocket ship! Zoom, zoom!”
We highly recommend “Harry and Horsie” by Katie Van Camp.
