Great middle reader for the 10-12 year old set. Just how much trouble can two boys get into over the course of a summer on a farm ... ever tried peeing on an electric fence? Or putting the washing machine motor on a bike and having to constantly be on the lookout for Ernie the crazy rooster? Try this. --Tracy


A young city boy is sent to spend the summer on his aunt and uncle's farm. Though he has lived many places over the years, he has never experienced anything like farm life . . . and he has never met anyone like Harris, his daredevil of a cousin. If the two of them can survive wrestling three-hundred-pound pigs and mouse-hunting with toothless old Louie's fire-spitting pet lynx--which, unlike his master, has plenty of teeth--they just might make it through the summer!

Praise for Harris and Me…

"Truly one of Paulsen's best."--Booklist (starred review) "Readers will experience hearts as large as farmers' appetites, humor as broad as the country landscape and adventures as wild as boyhood imaginations."--Publishers Weekly
