The Horn Book Guide

“New ed. (1982). When Harriet accidentally tramples her neighbor’s prize flower garden and then runs away, she can’t eat or sleep until she decides to confess and make amends. Carlson presents a common childhood plight simply and insightfully in a brief text and bold colored-pencil illustrations that clearly depict Harriet’s dismay, guilt, remorse, and relief.”
