Cannibal Curse by Francesca Simon

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Miranda Richardson narrates the final four utterly horrid and totally brilliant new Horrid Henry stories by Francesca Simon, with illustrations by Tony Ross. Unabridged edition.


Cannibal Curse by Francesca Simon

The final collection of four brand new utterly horrid stories in which Horrid Henry triumphantly reveals his guide to perfect parents, reads an interesting book about a really naughty boy, and conjures up the cannibal's curse to deal with his enemies and small, annoying brother. Horrid Henry is illustrated by Tony Ross, who also illustrates David Walliams' children's books, as well as his own picture books. Read by Miranda Richardson


In the final story, Henry's favourite Evil Evie books are taken away because his parents fear their influence. But Henry is who he is anyway. And, as we always suspected, Henry is just like most children. Not really, in fact, horrid. The Sunday Times Ireland Praise for the series: These books are hilarious Yorkshire Reporter

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
