Harriet the Spy

Harriet M. Welsch is an only child raised by busy parents and her well-read, pragmatic nanny, Ole Golly. Harriet is also… a spy. When her secret notebook of blunt and hurtful observations about her classmates and neighbors is accidentally found, her friends turn on her. Ole Golly has left Harriet to marry but returns to her lonely ward to offer her important advice: “Sometimes you have to lie. But to yourself, you must always tell the truth.”
