Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Best Book of the Decade.

A Richard and Judy Children's Book Club selection 2011.

A brilliant story with football as the backdrop to the story about Horrid Henry, his little brother, Perfect Pete and of course not forgetting Moody Margaret. Henry is as determined as ever to get his own way and will stop at nothing to achieve his ends. Above all, he won’t let Perfect Pete or Moody Margaret stand in his way. How Henry and Pete continue their feuding adventures makes for more hilarious reading. This edition is an ‘Early reader’, so the text is interspersed with colour illustrations on every page. The Early Readers are perfect for parents to share with youngsters who are just beginning to enjoy chapter books rather than just picture books.

There are lots of Early Reader titles to choose from that are great for sharing with your youngsters and for kids just starting out on the reading journey to read alone. Check out the extracts on the site as some of the titles are slightly more advanced than others - for example the Francesca Simon animal story titles set at Potters Barn are great to get started on whereas the Sally Gardner, Georgie Adams and Vivian French titles have a bit more text to each page. Each and every one of them though has full colour illustrations on every page.

Synopsis

Horrid Henry and the Football Fiend: Early Reader by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry hits the Silver Screen Summer 2011. See below for a sneak peek.

Horrid Henry reads Perfect Peter's diary and improves it; goes clothes shopping with Mum and tries to make her buy him some Rootatoot trainers; is horrified when his old enemy Bossy Bill turns up at school; and tries by any means, fair or foul, to win the class football match and defeat Moody Margaret.

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