My oldest son is rereading all the books in this series on his own now and he still loves them. Happy reading!"T. Franklin, Parent"A modern comic classic." SF Said, Guardian Children's Books SupplementKids get to be harmlessly rebellious"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."HeraldHenry's naughtiness is a yardstick against which children can get a sense of their own moral goodness and social justice"What is brilliant about the books is that Henry never does anything that is subversive. She creates an aura of supreme naughtiness (of which children are in awe) but points out that he operates within a safe and secure world."Emily Turner, Angels And Urchins MagazineReaches the most important age group―children who are learning to read"I have tried out the Horrid Henry books with groups of children as a parent, as a babysitter, and as a teacher.

Horrid Henry is like most boys: he always has a plan and is always getting into mischief! It was amusing, and he could not put it down. Can't wait for the next. He read it cover to cover by himself in 2 days! That for me sells a book! He can't wait for the next one to be published. He has recommended it to all his friends."Mrs. Tami Gold, ParentReaches both boys and girls equally"Wonderfully appealing to girls and boys alike, a precious rarity at this age."Judith Woods, Times BooksA global publishing phenomenon with 12 million copies sold!
