Horrid Henry - Review & Giveaway - closed

Congrats to lucky winner - Clenna!

Come experience a world of fun and mischief in Francesca Simon’s latest books, Horrid Henry and the Scary Sitter and Horrid Henry's Underpants!

Don't know who Horrid Henry is?! Here's a brief intro:
Francesca Simon is one of the world's best-loved children's authors. She is the only American to have ever won the Galaxy Book Award, and her creation, Horrid Henry, is the #1 bestselling chapter book series in the UK—with a hit TV show and over fifteen million copies sold! Each book contains four easy-to-read stories and hilarious illustrations by the one and only Tony Ross, so even the most reluctant of readers won't be able to resist Henry's amazing talent for trouble!

PhotobucketIn Horrid Henry and the Scary Sitter, Horrid Henry encounters the worst babysitter in the world; traumatizes his parents on a long car trip; goes trick-or-treating at Halloween (with disastrous results); and emerges victorious from a raid on Moody Margaret's Secret Club.

PhotobucketIn Horrid Henry's Underpants, Horrid Henry makes a deal with his parents in return for eating his veggies; accidentally wears girls' underwear to school; tries to prove he is sicker than his brother; and writes the meanest thank-you cards ever (and makes money on it too).

Without a doubt, these are some of the funniest kid stories I've ever read! Have you ever read "Dennis the Menace"? These books remind me irresistibly of those. Written in the same mischievous yet innocent, tongue-in-cheek manner, trouble finds Henry whether he's looking for it or not (and yes, he's often looking for it!). Amusing and appealing, they made me glad that my kids don't behave as horribly as that - yet! If you haven't picked up a Horrid Henry book yet, make it your goal this holiday season. More info on this series can be found at Sourcebooks.

  2. The Bully Brothers by Mike Thaler is a book about two boys that cause tons of trouble! Very funny.
    The illustrator (Jared Lee) graduated from the same high school as me!

  55. My daughter reads these at school. One day in the car she was talking about one, can't remember which. Anyways, she wanted to do something in the book. I asked her if it was a good idea to do something you read in a book about a kid named Horrid Harry? LOL, she got pretty mad at me, guess I need to read the books huh.

    I always thought that the Junie B Jones were a bit mischievous.
