When Harrietís parents decide to go to Paris for a few months, she complains that she doesn't want to go. But they tell her that they weren't planning to bring her. Instead, they have arranged for Harrietís former nanny Ole Golly to come back. Harriet is happy about that, because she has been missing Ole Golly ever since she left to get married to an ice cream vendor. But when Ole Golly comes back, she has changed in a mysterious way. Harriet can tell that something is wrong, but Ole Golly won't tell her what it is. Itís time for Harriet to do some spying again. She knows she might get into trouble, but a spyís gotta do what a spyís gotta do.  (Debbie Frank, Youth Services Librarian, Maitland Public Library, Maitland, Florida, <>)
