The Lovereading4Kids comment

Perfect for reading aloud and sharing with children, these Early Reader chapter books have words and colour pictures on every page. This wicked and naughty story of Henry together with the funny pictures and lively design make it hugely appealing to both boys and girls. Perfect for children from 5-7. ...

And 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 Author Visit (Early Reader) by Francesca Simon

It is Book Week at Horrid Henry's school, and TJ Fizz, Henry's favourite author in the whole world, is coming in to talk to his class. He can't wait to meet her. So he can't believe his rotten luck when he is sent to listen to the Happy Nappy song with the Infants instead. He has to escape - but how?


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

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