Harriet the Spy is a children's novel written and illustrated by Louise Fitzhugh that was published in 1964. It has been called "a milestone in children's literature" and a "classic". However, according to the NPR feature “Unapologetically Harriet, the Misfit Spy," the book was banned and challenged by many parents and teachers who felt Harriet was a poor role model for children because she exhibited delinquent tendencies. If you are a collector of banned books, this piece of children's literature is one you want on your bookshelf.
