The Lovereading4Kids comment

Horrid Henry is MAD about dinosaurs – although not always for very good reasons! Enjoy sharing his enthusiasm for the Tyranosaurus Rex or Velociraptor and the rest. Stuffed full of facts, this is a must have for all Horrid Henry fans and everyone who is mad about dinosaurs.

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
