Hazy Bloom Series

Hazy Bloom and the Tomorrow Power

One perfectly ordinary afternoon, a vision flashes through third-grader Hazel “Hazy” Bloom’s mind―of flying peas. The next day in the school cafeteria, a food fight erupts that involves the very same airborne veggie. After one or two more seemingly silly visions come true in unexpected ways, Hazy realizes she has a strange new power to foresee a visual clue about trouble that’s on its way within twenty-four hours. But seeing is not always understanding, and headstrong Hazy quickly discovers that “tomorrow power” sometimes only gives her the ability to make a hilarious mess of things instead of saving the day.

“This series starter strikes a nice balance between drama and levity . . . Hazy may well be a match for Beverly Cleary’s spunky Ramona Quimby.” ―Booklist

“Hazy’s irrepressible, hilarious narration (punctuated with exclamation points and spelling vocabulary words she likes and dislikes) proves fast-paced and amusing . . . Likely to engage the primary school set with its madcap humor and unpredictable heroine.” ―Kirkus

“This quickly paced tale features a well-developed main character and lots of funny scenes . . . Hazy’s voice is unique, and her quirky personality is showcased on every page . . . Harney’s pictures are charming and add to the humor of the story.” ―School Library Journal

Hazy Bloom and the Pet Project

It’s the annual Third Grade Leadership Challenge, where each third-grade class plans and hosts a fundraiser. Hazel “Hazy” Bloom, however, has other things on her mind―like proving to her parents she’s responsible enough to get a pet iguana. But when Hazy’s “tomorrow power”―her ability to see visual clues about things that will happen one day in the future―mistakenly causes her to have a brilliant idea for a Pet Day fundraiser, her classmates put her in charge. Hazy’s annoyed, until she realizes that if she helps the class win, her parents will finally see that she’s responsible enough to get the iguana she’s dreaming of. Soon, Hazy’s determined to make sure her team ends up on top―but it’s not so easy when her tomorrow visions keep throwing her plans into disarray!

  • Age Range: 7 – 10 years
  • Grade Level: 2 – 5

“[A] hilarious story centered around family and friendship, with enough action and conflict to propel the plot . . . Harney’s delightful pen-and-ink drawings are quirky and expressive, adding even more humor to the already funny text.” ―Booklist

Belly-laugh inducing. . . . Readers who enjoyed Hazy’s shenanigans in Hazy Bloom and the Tomorrow Power (2017) will “for real live” have fun with this second adventure.” ―Kirkus Reviews

Hazy Bloom and the Mystery Next Door

Summer has just begun, and Hazel “Hazy” Bloom is not a happy camper. In fact, she’s not even an unhappy camper, because she’s stuck at home while all of her friends spend their summers camping (okay, Elizabeth’s is only day camp, but still). But then her tomorrow power―her ability to see a visual cue about something that will happen the next day―leads her to the empty house next door, where strange things keep happening. Empty house. Flickering lights. Sudden gust of wind. Could there be a ghost there? Hazy realizes it’s once again up to her to solve the mystery and prevent doom!
