I grew up (like Harriet, in Manhattan) with her books (HtS, NFiGtC, but also Sport in the same series) but only comparatively recently discovered Suzuki Beane, her Greenwich Village version of Eloise. Too bad it’s $200+ on Amazon.
I read Harriet The Spy so many times when I was young that the book fell apart. It’s wonderful on so many levels, assuming a level of sophistication and maturity on the part of the young reader that I’ve seldom seen in other YA literature.
Another cultural sidelight about which I knew nothing before. Thanks!
