    1. Harry, the white dog with black spots, is back in another picture book. As this title implies, Harry and his family take a trip to the seashore. Covered in seaweed, Harry is mistaken for a sea monster. A fun read but not quite the caliber of the other Harry books by this author/illustrator duo.

    2. First sentence: Harry was a white dog with black spots who liked everything about the seashore, excepte hot sun. Premise/plot: Harry gets too hot at the beach, and, while looking for some shade, accidentally gets swept out to sea. The good news is he makes it back to shore. The bad news? He's covered in seaweed and EVERYONE mistakes him for a sea monster. Can this misunderstanding be cleared up before he's captured? Will he be reunited with his family?My thoughts: I enjoyed this one. I'd read ot [...]

    3. This is part of the Better World Books 2016 Reading Challenge. It fulfills the book published in the year I was born. It's a fun book that my children used to love reading. I still had it in my bookshelves from years ago. A sweet dog goes with his family to the beach for a day and gets lost and covered in seaweed while hunting shade. The antics lead to being called "a bushy-backed sea slug", which I think is so funny. It's a cute book for 1st and 2nd graders or younger. *2016 BWB challenge- publ [...]

    5. I love harry, he's a classic. The story is cute, though some might find one part offensive (when Harry tries to stay cool by walking behind a fat lady in her shadow).

    6. Harry went with his family to the beach. It was a very hot day.Everywhere Harry went to cool off, he was told to leave. Eventually he went swimming in the ocean. He got covered with seaweed. When he got out of the water, everyone thought he was a sea creature! Crowds of people were shouting and running. Harry was just trying to find his family. Harry thought he heard his name being called so he ran towards the sound. The hot dog man was saying, "Hurry!", but since his ears were full of water, Ha [...]

    7. This story wasn't what I was expecting - it wasn't your typical beach visit. Fun and quite entertaining! Ages: 3 - 7Cleanliness: someone says "holy smoke." There are pictures of people in trunks and bathing suits, a few of the ladies are wearing two-pieces though they aren't forefront in the pictures.**Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. I also [...]

    8. Harry the Dog books are lovable wonderful books that children would enjoy being read to or read themselves. The illustrations are basic pastel colors but draws you into them so even without able to read the words a child would LOVE sitting and looking at the pictures.In this one the family go to the beach, Harry gets hot and can't find a place to cool down until the waves get on him and cover him in seaweed. Everyone thinks he's a sea creature. But in the end his family finds him once again. Sup [...]

    9. I grew up with Harry the Dirty Dog but I don't think I was ever read this one, it was still a pleasure to come across as I was shelving books in the library. The pictures aren't spectacular but they're homey and Harry is as unintentionally mischievous as ever. Poor Harry loves everything about the beach but the hot sun and that's the one thing he can't seem to escape. He has a series of misadventures while be trying to beat the heat. This has quite a bit of text compared to a lot of modern pictu [...]

    10. Harry visits the seashore with his family and becomes a seaweed monster. This is a funny tale in the series of books about Harry by Gene Zion and Margaret Bloy Graham. The illustrations are humorous and the story is timeless (even the swimsuits are back in style!) We really enjoyed reading this story together. It's a nice tale for the end of summer.

    11. The next installment (for us) of the adventures of Harry. I liked it, but I'm not particularly enthralled by him. There's something a little clunky about the writing in this one in particular - it doesn't flow as well as I found Harry the Dirty Dog did. My daughter on the other hand, is a huge fan, and loved it.

    12. This was a super cute, simple story; perfect for a bedtime story to read together with a little one who is a novice reader (like my 6-year old nephew). Although an adorable tale, it does start off a little harsh in the beginning because all the people seemed to be unnecessarily hostile towards the little dog, but like most children's books, the offenders redeem themselves in the end and everyone lives happily ever after.

    13. This is a great story about a curious puppy who finds himself in different problematic events. This story is great for sequencing. I would not recommend these book for under second grade, unless the teacher is reading the story to the class and can stop and explain some of the inferences needed to comprehend the story. I would use this book in the classroom for inferencing, sequencing, and/or main idea.

    14. This is my favorite book in the Harry the Dirty Dog series. Harry gets separated from his family at the beach and after being swept up in a wave comes out of the ocean covered in seaweed and looking like a sea monster, which leads to lots of confusion and panic on the beach.The only problem with reading this to the class that came to the library to visit was most of the kids had read it already.

    15. This story is amazing,tells the world to not disown others. There are people in the world, even family, that will turn their back on you and wont treat you equally. As litte Harry begins to bring on attention with his "accidental body garment", not only does his family treat him special, he receives his own umbrella from the rays of the sun.

    16. In retrospect, I guess I DID know that there were other books to the Harry books after "Dirty Dog". I remembered reading No Roses as soon as I opened it, but By the Sea was a whole new adventure. The illustrations are great even after nearly 55 years! WOW! Even though this series has been through many generations of readers, it is still a winner!

    17. Darling story, just what children love. Some suspense involved which is exciting and wonderful. Children are drawn into the story as they become concerned about Harry being too hot, being mistaken for someone he is not, and feeling a little lost. Good practice for developing compassion and understanding outcomes.Lovely comic illustrations. Delightful.

    18. Maybe when 3-1/2 yo son is older we may have a better review of this book. I had to edit the fear laden "sea monster" pages with "strange creature" stories, as not to teach my little guy how to be afraid. No scare tactics are welcome in our home, so I don't allow it to be read aloud, even if it all ends well. We'll stick with Harry the Dirty Dog for now. No fear here.

    19. This is a sweet story about a family dog who's white with black spots. I read this one a while ago. The only thing I really remember about it is that when Harry goes to the beach with the family, he wanders away from the blanket. Then he can't find his family because it seems everyone on the beach has that yellow, white, and green stripped umbrella (the one on the cover).

    20. What's not to like about Harry? This one isn't quite as charming as Harry the Dirty Dog, but it's still a fun companion book. Harry just looks so cute wrapped up in seaweed and running around the beach as a sea creature. It did sort of rub me the wrong way that a character is referred to as "a fat lady," but I'll give it a pass since it is of another era.

    21. We have read Harry the Dirty Dog so many times in the last 6 months, and it finally occurred to me to look for other Harry books at the library (having vaguely remembered reading more than one as a kid). We found this one and it was a hit. When I read it, the story came back to me, so I must have enjoyed this as a child, too. The pictures of Harry as a "sea monster" are really funny.

    22. This book was a childhood favorite and one my father read quite often at bedtime. I remember always feeling enormously worried about Harry losing his family, even after having read the story a dozen times. A subconscious awareness of hot dog salesmen as villainous mockers explains my conversion to vegetarianism at the age of 15.

    23. Poor Harry! He's just a hot dog at the beach who somehow manages to create complete and utter chaos wherever he goes. His attempts to cool off keep the whole family laughing and you really feel for him as he searches for his family. I would highly recommend any of the Harry books.

    24. Harry goes to the sea, loses his family, and scares beachgoers when he gets covered with seaweed. I have always loved all of the "Harry" books, so I was thrilled that my 5-year-old is just as enchanted by them. She has asked for multiple readings of this story.

    25. Harry the dog is at the beach and it is hot. He tries to figure out how to cool himself down with funny outcomes. This book was just as good now as it was when I was little. My daughter enjoyed this book as well. Would recommend.

    26. Was inspired to take this out of the library after reading No Roses for Harry recently. Loved this one, too only complaint was it was a little longer and more wordy than necessary. I would recommend it, though. Also, L said she read it at school.

    27. This was our second Harry the Dirty Dog book. I definitely liked the original better, but it was still another fun tale of misadventures and misunderstandings.

    28. My most favorite children's book ever, so far! This is a great story and keeps children hooked! I need to buy this one!
