The Lovereading4Kids comment

Horrid Henry is back starring in four more perfect stories which hilariously show off his very worst behaviour. Wherever Henry is, trouble is never far behind as he works out his cunning plots all of which are designed to upset his perfect little brother Peter. Sibling rivalry knows no bounds and Henry’s behaviour just seems to get worse, even when he’s simply playing a board game as when he robs the bank in the title story.

Horrid Henry Robs the Bank by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry helps himself to all the money he needs to win his favourite board game, comes up with another spectacular money-making scheme for launching a newspaper with all the school gossip, vows vengeance on Perfect Peter when Peter nicks his birthday party theme and has his own Pirate Party - and gets it by taking over as Head Teacher when Peter plays school with his goody-goody friends. Four brand new stories from our favourite mischievous boy!


Horrid Henry certainly lives up to his name, and his antics are everything you hope your own child will avoid - which is precisely why younger children so enjoy these tales INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY Outrageously funny and endlessly inventive JEWISH CHRONICLE

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
