"From the very beginning this story has a vitality and interest that complex attention. 11-year-old Harriet is a superb character. Most modern fictional children are pallid denizens of a dream world compared with this precocious, intense, egocentric, and mean child."

"Heroines in fiction come and go and most of them are soon forgotten. But not Harriet the Spy, 11-year-old whirlwind of precocity and single-minded purpose....This is a brilliantly written, unsparingly realistic story, a superb portrait of an extraordinary child."

"A very, very funny and very, very effective story; the characterizations are marvelously shrewd, the pictures of urban life and of the power structure of the sixth grade class are realistic."
