KIRKUS REVIEW

 When five-year-old Harry Kane moves from the city to the suburbs, adventure follows: a classroom mix-up lands him in second grade instead of kindergarten; his turtle, Personality, meets an untimely end in the clothes dryer; Harry has to find a way to get to his grandmother's hospital room to deliver a get-well drawing. And more. Unfortunately, though the characters here are likable and the scenes amusing, they don't add up to a very satisfying story. There is no sense of Harry's emotional growth; lacking a unifying theme, the book seems like nothing more than a series of funny skits. (Fiction. 6+)
