Appealing illustrations in pencil with colored inks grace this well-told tale about Harriet Harris, "a pesky child" who might well try the patience of a saint. What child will not sympathize with a heroine who spills her juice, dribbles jam, drips paint on the carpet and falls off her chair? Harriet, who always says "I'm sorry" -- and means it -- is blessed by having a mother who "didn't like to yell." That is, until one particularly terrible afternoon. Both parent reader and child listener will enjoy this cautionary tale with its satisfactory, true-to-life ending.
