Absolutely brilliant.  My son is a huge Horrid Henry fan.  I’ve never seen him read a book so fast.  The book is full of great information about Henry.  Highly recommended.Lucyc58 read it to Robert2007 aged 9
We loved this book, it was full of funny and interesting facts. Great for Horrid Henry fansgayleymoo-glasgow read it to Josh aged 8 & Sam aged 7 
I loved this book because it was all about Horrid Henry.  I loved hearing about his practical jokes and how he plays tricks on people.  He called his Dad a ‘blobby pants face delux’ which was hilarious.  The pictures are really good too.  Sam (7)

I found this book easy to read and the text wasn’t too small.  I would recommend it to people who like practical jokes and wouldn’t advise it for parents! Josh (8)

I give this book a 4 star rating because it was really funny but some words I couldn’t read because the font was unreadable.

I found this book funny. I liked getting to know more about Henry. I would have liked more exciting tales about his life though. It is a good book for boys aged 6-8 who enjoyed Horrid Henry’s other books.
