The Lovereading4Kids comment

A must-have for all Horrid Henry fans. Horrid Henry’s jokes are irresistibly awful, reflecting all of his terrible characteristics.


Horrid Henry's Jolly Joke Book by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry's friends and enemies all think his first joke book was such a great idea that they want to write one, too! Themed sections from each of Henry's classmates and some of his teachers include Ralph's Rude Jokes, Gurinder's Gorgeous Jokes, Weepy William's 'Wah Nobody Laughed at My Jokes' Jokes, Boudica's Battle Jokes and Fangmangler Jokes. Of course Henry's determined to have the last word with the funniest and grossest jokes of all.


'Includes contributions from Henry's classmates, with Henry, of course, getting the last word and the the last laugh.' Jennifer Taylor The Bookseller

'Primary school-age children will enjoy telling and retelling these jokes; they are not too rude and provide a mix of the witty and the groanworthy.' Angela Kiverstein The Jewish Chronicle

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.
