The Lovereading4Kids comment

10 of Horrid Henry’s most dreadful deeds all in one wonderful volume, and perfect for every boy and girl aged 5+. Whether it’s sabotaging his parents’ dinner party, plotting revenge on everyone by writing his will or just generally being pretty horrid to Perfect Peter! In a lovely gift hardback edition, it couldn’t be a better present and Tony Ross’ wonderful illustrations of Horrid Henry doing his best to be horrid are to be found throughout the book.


Horrid Henry's Dreadful Deeds by Francesca Simon

Made to be a page boy at a wedding, forced to go on a country walk, and dragooned into dinner at a posh restaurant - it's a hard life for Henry. But in these ten hilarious stories taken from the Horrid Henry books, he shows he knows how to stick up for himself and get his own back. Brilliant new extras include instructions, notes from Horrid Henry, a recipe for a truly horrible drink, and advice on various important matters. You can even choose a new hairstyle for his unfavourite dinner guest!

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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!

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.
