Children’s Fiction
Ages 7-12
Summary: Horrid Henry sabotages the Christmas play; tries to do all his Christmas shopping without spending any of his allowance; attempts to ambush Santa Claus (to get more presents, of course); and has to endure the worst Christmas dinner ever!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve reviewed other Horrid Henry books. They are the perfect book for children who are reluctant readers. The hilarious story line, the comic-like illustrations and short stories make it great for reluctant readers. Francesca Simon and Tony Ross (Illustrator) are genius!

I was afraid at first that only the first story would be about Christmas but I was happy to find out all four stories are Christmas related. The stories are also in a timeline of sorts. Each story getting closer to Christmas Day when the final story happens.

The author channels a small mischievous boy incredibly well!
