5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this very much!, 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rosie Project (Kindle Edition)
I loved Don's logical, blunt and honest thinking! The quirkiness of the characters were entertaining. Recommended to anyone who enjoys romance but would like something a bit different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, 6 Mar 2007
This review is from: Smelly Socks (Paperback)
A friend recommended Robert Munsch's books to me and I forgot. As chance would have it, about a year later I was searching for something else and found his website. What a joy that was! His books are perfect for children. They are well written and the illustrations add to the entertainment.

My boys found this story very funny and so I would definitely recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beware - humour at large!, 23 Mar 2006
This book should come with a warning: "Do not read in public!" unless you are prepared to embarrass yourself. The anecdotes are too real and will cause the laughter to bubble from you. If your self-diagnosis has led you to look for a book that would help and you believe that laughter is the best medicine, then I would definitely recommend it.
With a 4 year old and a 2 year old , I have found that it is easy to read, full of anecdotes and useful advice that is sure to put you in the frame of mind to deal with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feed Their Minds, 23 Mar 2006
It is amazing just how often we under-estimate the young mind's hunger for knowledge and their ability to understand. My 4 year old son is vey curious about the world around him, everything from planets to electricity.
We now read the 'stories'in this book on a daily basis and he always insists on 'just one more'. It is easy to read with complementary graphics and is therefore a great way to introduce them to facts. I would strongly recommend it for parents who find themselves providing information to their children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Anecdotal Manual, 20 Feb 2006
This review is from: The Pocket Parent (Paperback)
Whoever said that children didn't come with an instruction manual was wrong. This book proves that a lot of the issues that I experience (eg encouraging my children to listen) or am concerned about (eg dealing with strangers) can be learned through advice from others.
With a 4 and 2 year old, time is of the essence and this book allows me to quickly look up suggestions on how to deal with many of the day to day issues or to sanity check actions that I am instinctively taking as a Mummy. More importantly, the suggestions work! I would happily recommend it to any parent as it would, at the very least, provide a source of amusement and that in itself is a great start to dealing with any issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly useful tool, 8 Aug 2005
Not only did I enjoy reading this book, I have recommended it to several of my family and friends.
It is a very useful tool for understanding the way we behave. It provides a fun way to examine how two people may have the same goals but take completely different routes to get there, and in some cases, it is IF they get there.
It has given me insight into relationship and team building to achieve the maximum potential as you can play to everyone's strengths.
Strongly recommended if you are experiencing frustrations in any relationship whether personal or business.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun book, 8 Aug 2005
This book is excellent for entertaining children. In a fun way, it deals with real life issues: friend staying over, losing baby teeth etc; and typical childhood games eg the secret club. It is particularly good as there are contrasts between the extreme behaviour of Horrid Henry and that of his brother, Perfect Peter, so children have the opportunity to learn bad and good.
But what makes it stand out are the chuckles that come from you, the reader, as Horrid Henry says things that sometimes you wish you could say. As a parent, I am happy to read it again and again and again.
