The Harriet Clare series is unique in newly independent children's fiction. In the fifth instalment of this popular series, Mystery Dare, join Harriet as she heads off on a family holiday!
This is a fun, Scooby-Doo-mystery type title with new Harriet laugh-out-loud moments. In previous titles she gets anxious, doesn't practise her ballet, gets worried at giving speeches and finds it hard to make friends easily. Harriet has had a learning curve though and is more together in this title, showing a Harriet that is growing up.
A visual feast and explosion of fun, the Harriet Clare books draw in even the most reluctant of readers with charming illustrations, illustrated text and sketching activities.
Harriet also encourages problem-solving, self-understanding and empathy in the reader.
