"[A] charming, funny, subversive middle-grade illustrated fantasy." -- Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author, activist, and co-editor of Boing Boing

* "A joy to read, and we can only hope that Harriet - long may she reign - will return in later installments." --Booklist, starred review

* "Move over, Babymouse, there's a new rodent in town!...Vernon has created a spunky heroine readers will cheer for and who will leave them eagerly searching for the happily ever after in the next installment." --School Library Journal, starred review

* "Harriet is her own hamster, but she takes her place proudly alongside both Danny Dragonbreath and Babymouse. Creatively fresh and feminist, with laughs on every single page." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "A book with all the makings of a hit. Readers will be laughing themselves silly." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Middle-graders with a taste for absurdity and snark will find plenty of both here...Fans of Holm's Babymouse (Babymouse: Queen of the World, BCCB 12/05) series or Vernon's Dragonbreath (BCCB 9/09) series will definitely want to tag along on Harriet's future adventures." --BCCB
