Review Quotes

"Francesca Simon, author of the Horrid Henry series, does another outstanding job with this one! Each of the four stories are long enough to tell a good story, but short enough to keep the attention of my two boys. They love to hear about what sort of trouble is getting into next. My oldest, John, is still convinced he's Perfect Peter and his younger brother, Justin, is Horrid Henry. Justin doesn't seem to mind!

As I've mentioned in the past, the Horrid Henry books are perfect for any child, boy or girl, in the 7-10 age range. But they are particularly great for reluctant readers. The stories and characters engage them and the text isn't challenging.

So, like in the past, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this, or any of the Horrid Henry series!
