Review quote

Miranda Richardson musters her considerable comic energies to give a spirited rendition of each of the four stories collected here. DAILY TELEGRAPH Horrid Henry's Underpants has all the glorious anarchy we've come to expect from these riotous stories for children aged three to nine. Miranda Richardson is in top form as the scurrilous scamp. SUNDAY EXPRESS In which the world's most revolting child (right) demonstrates the awful consequences of wearing the wrong nether garments. OBSERVER audiobook first aid. -- Kate Kellaway OBSERVER Number 4 of The Ten Best Audiobooks 'Once six-year-olds have read one Horrid Henry story, they'll be eager to devour all 17. In this outing, read by the excellent Miranda Richardson, Henry ends ups wearing girl's pants, after a birthday-present mix-up.' -- Simon Usborne THE INDEPENDENTshow more
