Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon (4 books)

Spread the love

Stars: *****

If you are a UK reader, you may have already heard of Horrid Henry. The Horrid Henry series has sold over 15 MILLION copies in the UK and there is a TV show named after it as well.

Well good news, Horrid Henry has come to the USA.

I got to review the first four books in the series and there will be at least more more coming out before the end of the year.

When you’re finished reading my reviews, check out the links for fun and educational materials related to Horrid Henry.

Each Horrid Henry book comes with 4 very short but very funny stories about Horrid Henry, his brother Perfect Peter, and his friends, classmates and family. The stories are intended for a Grade 2-5 audience but are especially great for boys and reluctant readers. The text is large and the words fairly simple yet it doesn’t take away from the hilarity. I’m almost 26 and I was laughing! I read all four in one sitting.
