Harriet the Spy is fifty this week! I wonder what she's writing in her notebook now? Here are some of her early observations:
OLE GOLLY SAYS DESCRIPTION IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL AND CLEARS THE BRAIN LIKE A LAXATIVE.
MY FATHER IS ALWAYS SAYING STARVINGARTIST AND STARVINGWRITER. MAYBE I BETTER REDUCE.
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A GOOD TOMATO SANDWICH NOW AND THEN.
YOU CAN'T BE TOO OLD TO SPY EXCEPT IF YOU WERE FIFTY YOU MIGHT FALL OFF A FIRE ESCAPE, BUT YOU COULD SPY AROUND ON THE GROUND A LOT.
So what do you think Harriet is up to these days? Is she working for the NSA? Or working to expose them? Is she publishing her twentieth novel? Does she blog? Is she married to Scout, the CPA -- or to Janie?
