Pamela Harding is a 2nd grader in Ms. Colman's class at Stoneybrook Academy. Pamela is first introduced in Karen's Sleepover as a new student in Ms. Colman's class.  


Pamela has long brown hair. In Karen's Pen Pal, Karen says that Pamela has pierced ears.

In the graphic novels she is changed to be a redhead.


When Karen Brewer first meets Pamela, she wants to impress her and become friends with her. Pamela comes to Karen's sleepover party, but it doesn't take long for Karen to realize that Pamela is not fun to be around at all. Pamela is also introduced in The Kids in Ms. Colman's Class book Holiday Time - which takes place at the same time as Karen's Sleepover. However, Holiday Time focuses on Sara Ford, who thought Pamela was cool although she never really interacted with her. This book reveals that Audrey Green dislikes Pamela. Sara later comes to the understanding that Pamela doesn't have a good personality.

In Baby Animal Zoo, Pamela thinks most of the girls (besides Jannie and Leslie) in her class are goody-goody babies. She thinks Karen is a loudmouth know it all. She likes to tease Natalie about her socks always falling down. She calls Terri Barkan and Tammy Barkan babies. She thought classmate Addie Sidney was strange.

She and Jannie fought over a position on the Fun Night Committee in Karen's Magician. Neither of them won and were caught breaking the rules; they eventually made up.

In Karen's in Love, she celebrated her eighth birthday. Her parents invited everyone in the class to her party, despite her not wanting them there. The party was circus themed and had a clown and a face painter.

In Karen's Candy she and Karen got in a fight over hogging the swing. Karen hit her cheek. Both girls got punished and were unable to march in the Halloween Parade. They ended up talking later and found a way to be in the parade hidden.

In Karen's Tattletale she was Ms. Colman and taught their class for switch day, her class plan was to study holidays. She was the understudy for Karen in the class medley. When Karen was punished she took over the part. Then when Karen got the part back, they split the medley. Pamela and Jannie won the three legged race on field day.

She is seen briefly in Claudia and Crazy Peaches with Jannie and Leslie with their bikes. She likes hopscotch and stopped to play at Natalie's house and made homemade lemonade. She left when Natalie got bossy.

In Karen's New Teacher, Pamela thinks of the idea of the class wearing their backward one day to school. This is payback for Mrs. Hoffman for treating the class "badly."



In Karen's Runaway Turkey she says her grandparents live in Florida and that they would go sailing. When she's older, her grandmother promises Pamela she will teach her how to sail. In Karen's Surprise, it's mentioned her grandparents live near Disney World.

Her mom has relatives in Pennsylvania in Karen's Hurricane and had left before the storm had hit. She got a new pair of shoes while she was gone.

She has an older sister called Tamara Harding.

Her dad is a dentist and her mother is an author. Her mom has a home office and her dad sleeps on his recliner everyday after dinner in Baby Animal Zoo.
