Reviews-
  • Examiner.com ""Francesca Simon has done it again and Horrid Henry causes more trouble than ever in these new books. It's refreshing to see a series whose main character is a trouble-maker—because if we can't laugh at books, then what can we laugh at?""
  • Reading Rumpus/Examiner.com "Horrid Henry has jumped the pond and if you have or teach children in the early independent reader stage, you're going to want to check Henry out."
  • SMS Book Reviews ""I think the author and illustrator have something great going and that Horrid Henry will become more well-known then Junie B. Jones. The joy is, that Horrid Henry is liked by both boys AND girls. The books lists ages 7-10 but my 12-year-old niece loves them too.""
  • The Book Chook "I think there must be a lot of naughty schoolboy living inside my feathers, because I enjoyed Horrid Henry."
  • Cafe of Dreams "That little mischief maker Horrid Henry is at it again. Think of Dennis the Menace with an ornery attitude and you will get a feeling for Horrid Henry. This young man has a way of getting into trouble, causing lots of headaches and bringing tons of laughs. A most excellent way to get even the most reluctant of readers to read! Horrid Henry will appeal to both boys and girls with his antics and makes for a fun family read-along time. "
  • Not Just For Kids "Following the success of this spring's initial Horrid Henry invasion (4 books, 16 stories of unrivaled mischief and bad behavior,) the elementary aged yobbo is back in Horrid Henry and the Scary Sitter and Horrid Henry's Underpants. Having already established that Horrid Henry is fairly irredeemable, author Francesca Simon and illustrator Tony Ross continue to play up Henry for all his comedic value. His parents continue to despair in the face of his behavior (although they get some sweet, if unintended, revenge in Horrid Henry Eats a Vegetable.) And little brother Perfect Peter is starting to develop as less perfect and more prim; he is not so perfect that he isn't above bickering with Horrid Henry and conniving to get his own way, as he does in Horrid Henry's Car Journey. But what readers want is Horrid Henry getting in and out of scrapes and providing a good laugh, and that is exactly what they get.
    "
  • Book Loons "The rebel in every reader, young and old, will revel in Horrid Henry's hilarious exploits, and be hungry for more."
  • The Children's Book Review "What do vegetables, underpants, letters, and feeling sick have in common? Not much, but they are the basis behind this gut-busting next addition to the series. Horrid Henry's Underpants has to be one of my favorite stories from this particular collection; I don't think any reader could keep a straight face the moment that Horrid Henry discovers he mistakenly put on frilly, pink, girls underwear before leaving for school. The rest of the collection may have been written wittily for children, but certainly provide total parent satisfaction. Parents will appreciate the story of Henry eating vegetables, well, pretending to eat vegetables; the sick day that involves the whole family; and the thank you letter writing; none of which end in Henry's favor. I recommend this particular collection for a very fun family read."
  • The Never-Ending Shelf "I was really surprised how versatile I found these books. As a female reader, I was certain that they would be attempting to appeal more to male readers, but I was wrong. Simon does an amazing job at making this series appeal to both boys and girls, as well as make family reading accessible. These books are geared towards children ages 7-10, and make great starter books. I would recommend these to any parent with readers just starting out or having a hard time reading. Overall, the Horrid Henry books are a great series for kids looking for action, adventure, and laughs. They will definitely keep your child's attention, and have them begging to read more about Horrid Henry and his antics."
  • Mother Daughter Book Club.com "I've been hearing about how popular Henry is with young readers, and now that I've read a couple of titles myself I can see why. Henry is always getting into trouble, and he always learns something from his antics. It's not...
