Will make you laugh out loud...

Sunday Times

There's something wonderfully subversive about Henry and his horrid ways, which probably explains why so many children are utterly captivated by these funny stories.

Junior Education

Horrid Henry is a fabulous anti-hero: monstrously selfish and greedy, he does things most children only dream about… a modern comic classic.


Wonderfully appealing to girls and boys alike, a precious rarity at this age.

The Times

'Henry is a beguiling hero who has entranced millions of reluctant readers… little rebels will love this collection and even little angels will be secretly thrilled by Henry's anti-heroic behaviour.


The best children's comic writer.

Amanda Craig, The Times

'Horrid Henry has long been a favourite with readers who prefer an anti-hero; a sort of modern cross between William Brown and Dennis the Menace.


Francesca Simon's Horrid Henry is a mischievous little boy who always says the wrong thing, but just about manages to be lovable.

Sunday Express

In my opinion all of the Horrid Henry books are seriously funny because she really brings to life what the characters are like. I would recommend this book and all of the others in the series to readers aged 7 years old and above. I give the series a rating of 4.5/5 stars.
