Read full description of the books:
Horrid has never been so good! Horrid Henry Rocks by Francesca Simon is a short story collection featuring every boy's mischievous hero. In these four short stories, Henry invades his brother Perfect Peter's room, infiltrates Moody Margaret's sleepover to steal yummy treats, writes his autobiography with odd results, and plots to find a way to attend a concert given by his favorite band, the Killer Rat Boys.
This is the first Horrid Henry book I've read, but it certainly won't be the last. I have never laughed so hard in my life. Now, if Horrid Henry was my kid, I would certainly be crying a boatload of tears, but Simon's horrible main character will delight early readers with his antics. Simon creates a group of quirky characters and embellishes their quirks to the hilt. Moody Margaret is as stubborn as June B. Jones and as obnoxious as Junie's nemesis, May. Perfect Peter, Henry's younger brother, is the most perfect kid on the earth. He keeps his room nice and tidy; he does his homework without a problem; and he loves Daffy and Her Dancing Daisies like every good boy should. Lazy Linda is too lazy to bother doing much of anything, and Vain Violet won't sleep on the floor at Moody Margaret's sleepover.
The illustrations by Tony Ross are perfect for this one. Ross captures Simon's zany characters in all their quirkiness. From the point of Moody Margaret's nose to the ominous zombie from sleepover ghost story, the book wouldn't be the same without this fabulous artwork.

Read information about the authorFrancesca Simon grew up in California and attended both Yale and Oxford Universities, where she specialised in Medieval Studies. How this prepared her to write children’s books she cannot imagine, but it did give her a thorough grounding in alliteration.
She then threw away a lucrative career as a medievalist and worked as a freelance journalist, writing for the Sunday Times, Guardian, Mail on Sunday, Telegraph, and Vogue (US). After her son Joshua was born in 1989, she started writing children’s books full time. One of the UK’s best-selling children’s writers, Francesca has published over 50 books, including the immensely popular HORRID HENRY series, which has now sold over twelve million copies.
Francesca won the Children’s Book of the Year in 2008 at the British Book Awards for Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman. HORRID HENRY is published in 24 countries and is also an animated CITV series. She lives in London with her husband, son, and Tibetan Spaniel, Shanti.
