Review quote

"As much as my son enjoys the book, I have to say that I probably like it more. It's really refreshing (not to mention realistic) to read about a kid that isn't perfect, that doesn't always get along with everyone, and that gives his parents a few gray hairs once in a while. The stories are short enough to hold my son's attention throughout their entire length, but they also have some advanced vocabulary which has provided us with the perfect chance to discuss new words and concepts... Really the best part about them is they're funny and they encourage kids to read. Horrid Henry is one of those kids that you love to hate, or hate to love: either way he makes for a great protagonist in an amazing series of books!"
