Reviews

"Fine fare for beginning readers, this clever book should find a ready audience. " - Booklist
"The angle here is spot-on, and reluctant readers will especially find lots to love about this early chapter book series. Treat young readers to a book talk or read-aloud and watch Henry go flying off the shelf." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
""For kids beginning to read independently, "Horrid Henry" by Francesca Simon and Tony Ross arrived from England this year, importing sophisticated humor and a sly approach to storytelling. Not since "Nate the Great" has an early reader series created such a buzz."" - Los Angeles Times
""Not since "Nate the Great" has an early reader series created such an addiction."" - Newsday
"These are good chapter books and the girls might like to read them too." - Loogootee Tribune
"Audiobooks: "[Horrid] Henry is the exemplar by which other boys can measure their own horridness...Miranda Richardson plays Henry just right, neatly balancing peevishness, effrontery and sheer life force."" - Kirkus
""a loveable bad boy" " - People
""The writing is very clever, the humor will have you laughing your pants off, and I firmly believe these books are so popular because there's a little Horrid Henry in each of us... Ross's illustrations bring Horrid Henry's mischievous side to life with his devilish looks and slanted eyebrows."" - Examiner.com
""Humor is a proven enticement for reluctant readers, and Francesca Simon's 'Horrid Henry' series locates the funny bone with ease"" - Newsday
""Kids who love funny books will love the 'Horrid Henry' series by Francesca Simon... Simon's hilariously dead-pan text is wonderfully complemented by Tony Ross's illustrations, which comically capture the consequences of Henry's horridness."" - Children's Corner, Scripps Howard News Service
""Sometimes kids just need to laugh. In these four easy-to-read stories about mischievous Henry, kids may laugh so hard they'll snort milk out through their noses!"" - Central California Parent
"Do your kids like silly books?...Francesca Simon's Horrid Henry series features horrid but loveable Henry and Moody Margaret. " - Montgomery Life
"Unbelievable. Laugh-out-loud hilarious. Francesca Simon is my sons' new favorite writer of all time. She's as cheeky as Roald Dahl and as hilarious as Dav Pilkey and the titular Horrid Henry may be the worst child you've read about in a long time. But that doesn't mean his stories aren't utterly fabulous...A must-read." - Patch.com
