Harriet the Sly, Part Two

My day began with Martha P. expostulating, rightly, over the "further reading" page in the forthcoming Harriet the Spy®, Double Agent by Maya Gold. Facing the title page, it is headed "Other books featuring Harriet the Spy and her friends," and then lists Harriet the Spy, Harriet Spies Again, The Long Secret, and Sport. Alphabetical order be damned: as the song says, one of those things is not like the others. And, as Reeve Lindbergh says, WHEN WILL WE OPEN OUR EYES?

Oh God, this is a sad, sad day. what is the author credit on Harriet Spies Again, anyway? Surely most readers will figure out that it's not by the author and not part of the original series? I have to believe that, or I might have to swallow poison and die, to quote a line from Merrily We Roll Along.
