Contributor Bio(s): Suzy Kline, the author of nineteen previous Horrible Harry books and four books about Song Lee, lives in Willington Connecticut with her husband, Rufus. Suzy and Rufus have been married for thirty-eight years. They met in the state where they both grew up: California. Suzy grew up in Berkeley and Rufus in Sacramento. Suzy graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a degree in European history. She met Rufus at the Davis campus while attending that campus for a year. They got married and lived in different places, including Canada, before settling into Connecticut, the state they now call home.

Suzy taught in 5th and 6th grades at Shannon Elementary School in Richmond, California for 3 years, and 2nd and 3rd grades at Southwest Elementary School in Torrington, Connecticut for 24 years before retiring this past June. She now enjoys writing full-time and visiting schools and libraries. The couple share their home with two cats, Teeter and Hoag. They have two daughters, Jennifer and Emily, and four grandchildren: Jake, Kenna, Gabby and Saylor. A fifth grandchild is due in September, 2006. Suzy's mother just turned 96. She dedicated her most recent book, Horrible Harry Takes the Cake to her.

Suzy and Rufus enjoy attending UConn football and basketball games, and Suzy uses the UConn library as a reference for her writing facts.

Gr 2-4-- Marty loves math and is good at it. He has been able to solve most of his big problems by putting them into mathematical equations and calculating his answers--until now. Now he has entered third grade in a new school, and he is terrible in P. E. class. Inevitably, he is the last one chosen when teams are picked. For once, his analytical thinking fails to provide an answer to his dilemma until his wise math teacher sheds some light on the situation. Unathletic children who have felt like klutzes in gym class will find consolation in Marty, who faces his limitations head on yet is able to rise above them. He is a convincing character with whom readers will identify. Duffey uses mathematical equations cleverly throughout the story to show the tough processes Marty goes through in trying to solve his problem. The short chapters, generous margins, large print, and full-page black-and-white drawings make this a fine choice for children looking for books to bridge the gap between picture books and longer novels. --Laura Culberg, Chicago Public Library Cultural Center Copyright 1990 Cahners Business Information.

e Harry falls in love with Song Lee when she brings her water frog to the second-grade classroom. From Harry's best friend Doug's point of view, the love notes, shy glances, and a red foil gift are just too much. When Harry stops talking, all his friends try to find out what he is hiding. The truth is that he lost two of his front teeth, which were his pride and joy. Of course, new ones are coming in and thus ends a very superficial story with little plot, characterization, or style. Events like these take place in thousands of classrooms each year. The redeeming value here is that second graders can read this to themselves or to each other and then write their own stories, which will likely be every bit as good as this one. --Pamela K.
