The Lovereading4Kids comment

Horrid Henry is bored and fed up because he has been naughty yet again so he's been banned from doing all sorts of things he likes doing. This is the perfect time for Henry to think of something really naughty to do. Great for reading aloud and sharing with children, these Early Reader chapter books have a great story with bright and funny colour illustrations on every page to make them even more appealing. They’re perfect for children from 5-7. ...

And a note from the author Francesca Simon: 'I hope these beautiful new editions of my stories will welcome the next generation to the joy of books.'


Horrid Henry's Rainy Day (Early Reader) by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry is bored and fed up on a rainy day, until he starts to write his will. The only trouble is it is a lot more fun getting stuff from Mum and Dad than giving away his own treasures ...


Praise for Orion Early Readers:

'A delightful mix of new stories plus old favourites. Great for reading aloud for library storytimes and for parents and children to share and enjoy reading together' - Annie Everall OBE, Youth Libraries Group

'Early Readers are a good choice for those young readers beyond the 'beginning' stage who need the reassurance of a familiar format' - Nikki Gamble, Write Away

'Works well as either read-aloud stories to share, or for children growing in confidence to read by themselves. The format is perfect for either approach, so children can take the book in bite-sized chunks or parents can limit bedtime reading marathons.' - The Bookbag
