It's Cold, and Harry's Cooped Up! Could His Day Get Any More Horrible — or Hilarious? Starring third-grader Harry, a good kid who always gets into messy situations, Horrible Harry Goes Cuckoo captures the cooped-up feeling kids get in the middle of winter when it's too cold to play outside. It's a horrible day for Harry: A classmate is calling him names, his library book is overdue, he's last in line for a turn to be the Room 3B VIP. Worst of all, it's cold and icy outside again, which means no outdoor recess. It's all too much; that's why Harry starts to go cuckoo! Fortunately, there is a solution to his problems, even though it comes from a very unexpected source.
