Harold has a sister named Gina. She’s mentioned earlier in the book. But how old is she? Edgardo needs to tie his sneaker.
A great big thank you to Ms. O’Leary and her fabulous second grade class at the Hosmer School for inviting me—and Harold—to come for a school visit. Reading—and listening—really IS fun!

The folks over at The Gadgeteer are thinking good thinks about Harold!
Harold thought the Wimple-Dimple Dimmer-Wimmer was an excellent piece of machinery.
“Hey,” Harold said, “that’s a Wimple-Dimple Dimmer-Wimmer.”
“Is that a bug?” Harold’s mother asked, whirling around in alarm.

“‘Oh,’ indeed,” Harold’s mother said. “We’ll have to clean everything out before we can put the car in here. Well, back to the moving truck,” she said with a sigh.
Harold’s father looked around. “Cool stuff,” was all he said.
I’m going to have to re-order Harold soon!
