Throwback Thursday: Harriet The Spy (1996)

Imagination, as amazing as it is, can sometimes be overblown.

In the classic children’s novel, Harriet The Spy by Louise Fitzhugh is the story of a young girl, Harriet M. Welch, who fancies herself to be a spy. When her friends find her notebook, Harriet’s spying days seem to be over. Can Harriet continue with her spying and regain the friendships she has lost?

In 1996, the book was made into a film starring Michelle Trachtenberg and Rosie O’Donnell.

Remaining true to the book, the film is charming, funny and has enough humor to keep both young and young at heart audiences entertained.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
