More About the Author

Francesca Simon was born in the United States and attended both Yale and Oxford universities. For ten years she worked as a freelance journalist. She now writes full-time and has had many books published including the best-selling Horrid Henry series and many picture books. Francesca is constantly in demand at bookshops, schools and book festivals all over the country where she talks to children about her books. She lives in North London with her family.

Horrid Henry books and audio have sold over 15 million copies in the UK alone and CITV have made a hugely popular cartoon series based on the nation's favourite naughty boy. 2008 saw a Horrid Henry exhibition at Seven Stories, Newcastle called Up To Mischief With Horrid Henry.

Horrid Henry Robs the Bank was shortlisted for the Children's Book of the Year award at the 2009 British Book Awards, the third consecutive year of nomination, following a win in 2008.

Francesca Simon is the third most borrowed children's author from UK libraries and Horrid Henry and the Football Fiend was the most borrowed children's title in 2009!

Francesca Simon on Francesca Simon:

"I've always seen my Horrid Henry books as westerns for kids. Henry is an outlaw, who behaves dreadfully, yet often triumphs. Just as adults like reading about people on the edge, so kids get a thrill from a child who always acts on impulse and never worries about the consequences.

I got the idea for the books when a friend asked me to write a book about a horrid child. Horrid Henry was born on the spot. I immediately saw a truculent little boy, the despair of his well-meaning liberal parents. I was also interested in exploring sibling rivalry, which I know something about as the eldest of four, and families where the parents decide that one child is 'good' and the other 'bad', which is how Perfect Peter came about. Soon Henry took on a vigorous life of his own, aided by the bossy madam next door Moody Margaret, who is an amalgam of myself and how I imagine Margaret Thatcher might have been as a child.

I started writing children's books in 1989 after the birth of my son, Josh. Suddenly all I was reading was books for children, and I started, to my surprise, to get ideas. One day we'd been reading lots of animal noises books, and he asked me what noise a caterpillar made. I thought 'wouldn't it be great to do an animal noise voice of all the unusual animals kids see in books?' That became my first book - But What Does the Hippopotamus say?"

We find some of the Early Readers a bit hit and miss - some are too easy, some are just right. This was a little easy (I think we're reaching a bit of an in-between stage) but my 6 year old daughter loves all things "spooky" and light-hearted, and this was a big hit.
I do love most of these Early Readers; it's a fantastic step towards increasing independence, and many of the books are very engaging.
Word of warning: this evening I have also reviewed an Usborne equivalent of an Early Reader called Mystery Mansion, which, according to their website, is aimed at KS1. That particular book is NOT, IMO, suitably pitched to a 6 year old child, with it's darker tone and imagery of dead people with twisted necks and a character having nightmares with the fear of being the next one to die. I had no idea that was the tone of that particular story when we picked it out and my daughter curled up and read it to herself, and I have just spent the evening calming my very terrified child down! This book (Haunted House of Buffin St) is far, far more suitable for littlies who like a bit of a spook, so it was a good purchase for us! So if you are looking for books along these lines then this is a good one, but it may be worth flicking through the "spooky" style books to get a feel for their tone. This is a light one.
