Harriet the Spy
Harriet M. Welch is the willful only child of well-to-do socialites. She is also a spy, who observes her friends and neighbors and writes about them in her notebook. Harriet spends much of her time with her loving nurse Ole Golly, who artfully teaches her about life. One fateful night Ole Golly announces she plans to marry and move to Canada. Soon after, Harriets notebook is found and read by all of her friends and classmates. Harriets blunt and mean observations in her notebook cause everyone at school to dislike her. Harriet is distressed and spirals out of control until get gets a visit from Ole Golly, who shares with her the helpful tip, Sometimes you have to lie. But to yourself you must always tell the truth.
