Description - Horrible Harriet by Leigh Hobbs

Horrible Harriet is one in a million. And maybe that's one too many. Horrible Harriet lives in a nest in the roof of the school. All the other children are scared of her. But when Athol Egghead arrives in a hot-air balloon, she finds her first friend. Shortlisted in the picture book category of the 2002 Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards, this wonderfully entertaining picture book is now available in paperback. Leigh Hobbs is the Australian Children's Laureate 2016-2017.
