I've never read the Henry books myself, too old to read them myself first time around, and they've never appealed as an adult.

Now the parent of a school-aged son, he's asked to try one so I couldn't refuse. And I was keen to see what all the fuss was about.

We started with the very first book of Horrid Henry stories, a collection of four tales in one (we read two per bedtime, over two nights).

The characters settle quickly in your mind - the two very different brothers, Peter and Henry, their neighbour Margaret (each with an alliterative name denoting their personality). And we get to enjoy their young misadventures.

Henry is, like My Naughty Little Sister, a rather ordinary child in many ways (moans, refuses to do as he's told, makes a lot of noise), but manages to get into lots of trouble. Perfect Peter is a horrible little squirt, in my opinion for worse than his big brother - he's devious, sly, a little telltale and suck-up, and I loved that the first chapter was one in which Henry behaves angelically to bring his brother down, if only temporarily. I actually found it quite sad when their parents blamed Henry automatically for things that were being done by Peter.

Of course, I could see my son enjoying them for what they are - stories of mischief for children, an anti-hero struggling against authority. We both enjoyed the camping trip the most I think, and Henry and Margaret's cooking abomination. Very disgusting - just perfect.

Tony Ross is a good choice as illustrator, captures the children well.

I'm sure we'll be borrowing more in the series from the library, and I'm glad to now be at least partially acquainted with the characters, though I think I'll always prefer Just William.

For confident readers of 7 and above, or for listeners of 4-6.

Horrid Henry is the child which every teacher dreads and which every other child loves. He can bring mayhem to every situation and leaves adults with a feeling of dread. Children laugh outloud as Francesca Simon describes how Henry's mum ends up covered in spaghetti. A definite must for every teacher - reading about henry makes your naughtiest child seem like a saint!

Horrid Henry is a book by Francesca Simon. It is a funny story about a boy
called Henry who doesn't like going on holiday. Henry has a brother called
Perfect Peter. Moody Margaret has told Henry all about her holiday at the
camp and Henry is all happy. But when he gets there he isn't very happy at all. I think that everybody should read this book.

I gave it five star because I love horrid Henry books and this one is probably my favourite one so far. My favourite part was when Henry finally got his own way and went to the holiday park. I would recommend this book for ages 7-10

The Horrid Henry stories are great for kids, and this CD means they can listen to them in the car. They're read very well, and with some fun sound effects and music in the background that the kids love.

This story is about Horrid Henry who eats a lot of unhealthy junk food and is very mental.

I think this is an amazing book because he is very horrid, therefore he gets told off so many times.

Don't you like to be nice? Or are you always horrid?

This is the book for you!
