Who is this guy?
You’ve never heard of Horrid Henry? He’s the creation of Francesca Simon. He’s the boy teachers hope are never in their class. He’s the child every parent dreads to have. He’s the hero of every rebellious male. And, Horrid Henry books are available this April 1, 2009, from Sourcebooks.
“HORRID HENRY is a publishing phenomenon-the world’s most mischievous child has spawned a bestselling book series with sales of over 12 million copies in the UK alone, a TV show, and the love of children around the world. HORRID HENRY has been translated into 27 languages and has received incredible praise from the press, librarians, book sellers, parents, and most importantly, kids!
Horrid Henry invades the U.S.!”
I’ve been reading Horrid Henry books aloud to my class, for half hour stretches at a time, and they cannot get enough of him. Like Dennis The Menace, and Curious George, Horrid Henry is either finding trouble or creating it, and the kids are crazy about his antics. Personally, I think he needs a good spanking, or perhaps some time in a Thinking Chair (as one friend of mine spent his kindergarten years). But, this is what my students have to say:
“We love this book because at the end of the vacation story, Henry forced his family to go to the other site.” ~Kody
“I think it’s a good book because it’s exciting and amusing.” ~Jessica
“The first book grabbed me because it’s so funny!” ~Joshua
