  One of my favorite books from childhood is Harry and the Terrible Whatzit () by Dick Gackenbach (). I recently revisited it for the first time in decades. It does exist to teach a lesson, and that lesson is not as subtle as I think it could have been. Despite this, I still find it charming both narratively and visually.
