Gary Paulsen never shuns writing about real life to spare your kiddies' artificial innocence. His books deal with the pains and joys of childhood - parental quarrels, alcoholism, abusive behavior, etc. - more forthrightly than any other children's writer I encountered with my own son as he was learning to read, and my son loved Paulsen's book enough to choose them for himself. Harris and Me" is a first-person narrative, told by a boy whose dysfunctional family has sent him to live with kinfolk on a backcountry farm in Minnesota.

Personal Response: I thought the book Harris and Me by Gary Paulsen was a very fun, light read. I grew up in a farming community with brothers who were always up to mischief. These facts helped me relate to this story.
His cousin Harris soon takes care of that. Harris is rude and crude and finds trouble at every turn. He leads his city cousin into everything from wrestling slippery pigs to catching mice to a daredevil jump out of a barn loft. Although Paulsen is perhaps best known for his dramatic adventure stories, he has also, over the years, given us glimpses of wonderful comedy-in his depiction of the tobacco-spitting plumber in The Island (1988), in the self-deprecating humor and farce found in the Iditarod experiences he wrote about in Woodsong (1990), and in the wacky, not entirely successful comic novel The Boy Who Owned the School (1990).
