Horrible Harriet is now horrible in a new chapter book format, highly (and horribly) illustrated
You may remember Horrible Harriet—she's wicked, wild, and larger than life, and she invented Mr. Chicken. Well Harriet is back, to claim her inheritance and fill in the gaps in her impressive family tree along the way. These include queens, warriors and yes, a vampire, too. This is the story of how she obtains her rightful inheritance, and in the process learns a lot about her famous and infamous ancestors. This hilarious, subversive tale is uniquely told in Horrible Harriet's own words.
