Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Books With Cookies And Milk (34)

Horrible Harry
Goes Crazy
Horrible Harry Goes Cuckoo By Suzy Kline
Written by:  Suzy Kline
Pictures by: Amy Wummer

     It is a horrible day for Harry. He is starting to go stir-crazy because the weather is still cold and icy and they are not going to have recess outside. He starts to play pranks and getting into trouble. After a scuffle with Sid, Harry and Sid are both sent to the principal’s office. This is all too much for Harry! Will Harry be able to behave or will he go ‘Horribly Cuckoo’? A solution comes to solve Harry’s problems from an unexpected source.

     Horrible Harry is a popular children’s book series. These books are written from the point of view of Harry’s best friend, Doug.  This is a fun book to read.

1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar

I like your idea of books with cookies and milk. I hope you are getting ready for the storm. Best of luck. we are getting ready too.

Great blog! Love all the recipes. (Printing) If that's okay. I love the sidebar about your mom. Absolutely beautiful.

I'm following and hope you'll follow me back. :-)

Robyn Campbell said...

Egad, I can't find your follower widget. Am I missing it? Would you rather I follow through email? I'm going to do that right now. See you soon. :-) (Feeling hungry for cookies.)

Hi Maeve, lots of pineapple down here in south florida, can't wait to try these cookies. Thanks for visiting my site, back at ya!

Maeve Frazier said...

Cynthia - Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe for the some. I am waiting for my son to come home he had been evacuated from N.C.

Robyn - Glad you stopped by. Usually I only do the Books With Cookies And Milk once a week. But this month I am trying to post almost every day a new book and recipe. Next week I will be back to the once a week. On another note. Blogger sometimes faults out and the widget for followers disappears. It should pop back. I don't know why it does it.

Gail - Hmm, sunny Florida. Except for this week. Hope you are safe. Hope you enjoy the cookies.

These recipes look really easy to do. I may even give them a try (although my track record this week for baking is not good!) And the book sounds like fun too.

Thank you for the recipe! :)

I love the cookies and milk/story ideas!! My 1-year old is named Harry, and I couldn't help laughing at this story description!

I also read (and cried at) your sidebar was so touching and reminded me of my grandpa. I was close to him, and he died a week after my daughter was born. She was born early, my grandpa couldn't drive, and we weren't taking her out of the house until she reached at least 6 pounds. My grandpa died without getting to see her. It was hard at the time, but I'm sure he's been watching her ever since. Thanks for sharing your story!

Rosalind - thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy both the cookies and the recipes.

Golden Eagle - you are welcome!

Carla - thank you for your kind comments and for sharing your story. It is something you never forget and always have them with you. Just feel it, he is there watching over you and your daughter!

I'm glad I am getting to know you all!
