HOW BETH ELLEN CAN CALL ZEENEY AND WAL¬LACE PARENTS IS BEYOND ME. THEY'RE NOT EVEN PEOPLE. THEY LOOK LIKE COASTERS.
SOMETHING WEIRD HAPPENS AT TWELVE AND BETH ELLEN HAS DONE IT. SHE NEEDN'T ACT LIKE SUCH A HORSE'S NOSE ABOUT IT JUST BECAUSE SHE AND JANIE ARE THE ONLY ONES. EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY.

-from the journals of Harriet M. Welsch
Louise Fitzhugh's first book, HARRIET THE SPY, was published in 1964. The critics at once separated into two vociferous camps. But the children adored Harriet, and the book quickly became a best seller which seems destined for literary immortality.
Miss Fitzhugh was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and has lived in Washing-ton, D.C., France, and Italy. She attended Bard College, the Art Students League, and The Cooper Union. Her paintings were exhibited successfully at the Banfer Gallery in New York in 1963.
In addition to her own two books, Miss Fitzhugh has illustrated SUZUKI BEANE, published in 1961. She lives in New York City hut spends her summers on Long Island at a place called Water Mill.
