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?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Horrid Henry's Thank You Letter 16 April 2011
By S Riaz HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These early readers are a really excellent idea. They take a Horrid Henry story (previously published - this story was originally in "Horrid Henry's Underpants") and turn it into a chapter book with colour illustrations. The story is split into six chapters, making each small chapter an easy way for a child to read a story which might be daunting in its original version. My 6 year old loves them and can read them alone. Wonderful and Horrid Henry can tempt even the most reluctant reader. In this story, Henry is forced to write his Christmas thank you letters for his terrible presents. Of course, Perfect Peter has already done his, to add to Henry's annoyance. Then he comes up with a cunning plan to make some money...

5.0 out of 5 stars great read ! 7 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good book for my son who finds it difficult to settle and read by himself. However reading this via the Kindle makes. It all much more fun:-)
The words are repeated often, so if prompted the first time there is a chance that recognition will take place so the word is mastered, for that read anyway! The pictures are well produced too, and this my some loved...he understood how to 'turn the page too, which he enjoyed!

Read it so that I can use it in my plans for writing 'Thank you ' letters with my 6 year olds at school. Would not normally read or encourage them to read the H Henry stories!
