Look who's getting old: Harriet the Spy: The children’s book heroine who observes friends, classmates, and neighbors – and holds nothing back in her notebook commentary – first came on the scene in 1964, when Harper & Row published Louise Fitzhugh’s Harriet the Spy. Fifty this year!! Unfortunately, the author Louise Fitzhugh died in her 40's in 1974, but Harriet lives on.

  1. That is one of the great things about being a writer. If you're good it gives you a form of immortality. Happy birthday Harriet!
