The Lovereading4Kids comment
Four Christmas stories about the mayhem everyone’s favourite bad boy causes at Christmas. In the count down to Christmas, Horrid Henry deals with the Christmas play, with presents, sets out to ambush Father Christmas and deals with Christmas lunch itself.
Christmas will never seem quite the same after reading of his hilarious exploits.
Horrid Henry's Christmas Cracker by Francesca Simon
Four fabulously funny stories that will invoke every family's worst Christmas nightmares, as Horrid Henry sabotages the school play, tries to do his Christmas shopping without spending his pocket money, attempts to ambush Father Christmas, and endures Christmas dinner with the guests from hell.
'Four interlinked stories lead up to the nightmare before and during Christmas as the awful child ruins his school Nativity play and enjoys the worst Christmas lunch ever. The scratchy, punky music will put your teeth on edge and Richardson's voice is like broken glass in treacle as she relishes the ghastly details about spiders in wreaths, frozen turkey and revolting relations. It will have you laughing helplessly all the way to Boxing Day and beyond.'
'Top 10 audiobook'
'once heard, you'll never forget the delicious mayhem of HORRID HENRY'S CHRISTMAS CRACKER... Perfect for 3-7s.'
'excellent voices for each of the characters so each one is easily identifiable... music and sound effects add to the enjoyment... This audio version would be suitable for listening to as a class or could be used for group reading, whilst the children followed along with the book - that is, if you don't mind the uncontrollable laughter. I believe it would encourage even the most reluctant reader'
