—Sunday Times

Look inside to see what kids and adults have to say about the master of mischief!



Why Horrid Henry?

Kids love it!
"I love the Horrid Henry books by Francesca Simon. They have lots of funny bits in. And Henry always gets into trouble!"
Mia, age 6, BBC Learning is Fun

"It's easy to see why Horrid Henry is the bestselling character for 5-8 year olds."
Liverpool Echo

Because it's funny
"My two boys love this book and I have actually had tears running down my face and had to stop reading because of laughing so hard. 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 Supplement

Kids 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."

Henry'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 Magazine

Reaches 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. Children love to either hear them read aloud or to read them themselves. The books are spot on for the 5-8 age range and are fun for the adults who share them too."
Danielle Hall, Teacher

The structure provides new readers with a real sense of accomplishment
"My son is 7 years old and a big Horrid Henry fan. This book lived up to his expectations! 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, Parent

Reaches both boys and girls equally
"Wonderfully appealing to girls and boys alike, a precious rarity at this age."
Judith Woods, Times Books

A global publishing phenomenon with 12 million copies sold!


"Parents reading them aloud may be consoled to discover that Henry can always be relied upon to behave worse than any of their own offspring." Independent

"An absolutely fantastic series and surely a winner with all children. My son took this book as his favourite during book week at his school and converted a few children to the cause. Long live Francesca Simon and her brilliant books! More, more please!"

"My 5-year-old adores them so much he couldn't wait to start reading because of them."

"I really like Horrid Henry and like reading it to my dad. It's funny!"
Matthew, 9, St. Albans

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

"My 6-year-old son has now read the whole series unaided and is quite content to re-read the stories again and again. My 5-year-old is dying to be able to read well enough so she can read them independently too!"

"Henry is really naughty and makes me laugh. He's very funny and he has lots of adventures."
Martha, age 5, Bella

"A flicker of recognition must pass through most teachers and parents when they read Horrid Henry. There's a tiny bit of him in all of us."
Child Education

"It didn't even make it to the library shelves and there's a long waiting list for it! Enough said."
Nancy Astee, Child Education

"A definite must for every teacher - reading about Henry makes your naughtiest child seem like a saint!"

"As a teacher of 8-year-olds, it's great to get a series of books my class love... They torment me to lend them the books so they can read them on their own. Need I say more?"

















look,” said Peter.“A whole dollar coin from the Tooth Fairy!” “Great!” said Mom. “Wonderful!” said Dad. What?! thought Henry. “Should I share it with you, Mom?” said Peter. “Thank you, darling Peter, but no thanks,” said Mom.“It’s for you.” “I’ll take it,” said Henry.“There are tons of comics I want to buy.And some—’ “No,” said Peter.“It’s mine. Get your own tooth.” Henry stared at his brother. Peter would never have dared to speak to him like that before. Horrid Henry pretended he was a

came the sound of Mom shouting. “Henry! Get down here this minute!” “What now?” muttered Henry, heaving his heavy bones out of bed. “Yeah?” said Henry. Mom held up an empty jar. “Well?” said Mom. Henry had forgotten all about the candy. “It wasn’t me,” said Henry automatically.“We must have mice.” “No candy for a month,” said Mom. “You’ll eat apples instead.You can start right now.” Ugh.Apples. Henry hated all fruits and vegetables, but apples were the worst. “Oh no,” said Henry. “Oh

recognition must pass through most teachers and parents when they read Horrid Henry. There’s a tiny bit of him in all of us.” —Nancy Astee, Child Education “As a teacher…it’s great to get a series of books my class loves. They go mad for Horrid Henry.” —A teacher “Henry is a beguiling hero who has entranced millions of reluctant readers.” —Herald “An absolutely fantastic series a d surely a winner with all children. Long live Francesca Simo and her brilliant books! More, more please!” —A

added. “Why isn’t supper ready?” “It will be soon,” said Dad. “But I always eat at six o’clock,” said Margaret,“I want to eat NOW.” “All right,” said Dad. Horrid Henry and Moody Margaret dashed for the seat facing the garden. Margaret got there first. Henry shoved her off. Then Margaret shoved him off. Thud. Henry landed on the floor. “Ouch,” said Henry. “Let the guest have the chair,” said Dad. “But that’s my chair,” said Henry. “That’s where I always sit.” “Have my chair, Margaret,”

one of the laugh-out-loud stories in Horrid Henry and the Mega-Mean Time Machine PERFECT PETER'S REVENGE Perfect Peter had had enough. Why oh why did he always fall for Henry’s tricks? Every time it happened he swore Henry would never ever trick him again. And every time he fell for it. How could he have believed that there were fairies at the bottom of the garden? Or that there was such a thing as a Fangmangler? But the time machine was the worst. The very very worst. Everyone had teased
