    Humorous and entertaining, Horrid Henry is sure to captivate young boys and girls alike with tales of his misadventures. Horrid Henry is the epitome of laziness and narcississm. He thinks that the world should bow to him and doesn't understand why his mother and father adore his younger brother, appropriately called Perfect Peter so much.

Horrid Henry is the epitome of laziness and narcississm. He thinks that the world should bow to him and doesn't understand why his mother and father adore his younger brother, appropriately called Perfect Peter so much. Perfect Peter is a wimp and follows the rules rigidly, yet he still cares for his older brother and wants to spend time with him. Horrid Henry, on the other hand, would score high on the kiddie Mach(iavellian) scale. He doesn't pay attention to others unless he can manipulate them for his own gain. I wouldn't call him a good role model; however, his misadventures call for many laugh out loud moments and, hopefully, will teach kids what not to do.--For more of my reviews, visit my blog Imaginary Reads.

    Horrid Henry is so horrid, and that's why my boys love him. He makes us laugh...and it's funny when the 5-year old and the 10-year old both want to listen to the same book. Henry is up to his usual horrid tricks in this one, whether it be ruining the "healthy" school lunches, messing with his perfect brother or trying to escape from the class sleepover at the museum by convincing everyone the teachers are zombies. Or vampires. Or zombie vampires. We laughed at every story, and can't wait to read Horrid Henry is so horrid, and that's why my boys love him.

Kiddos of all ages will have a ton of fun with Horrid Henry.Horrid Henry is so mischievous and imaginative - a combination that will surely end in getting into trouble. There is very little that will keep this boy from sharing his thoughts and standing up for what he believes in. One of the most unique and entertaining parts of this book was how each character is named by their number one characteristic - Horrid Henry's little brother is Perfect Peter. And some of his classmates are Rude Ralph, Tidy Ted and Moody Margaret. In each of the four stories, Horrid Henry tries to break free from the boring world and doesn't hold back in trying to get everyone to see how FUN things could be if they would just listen to him. Although Horrid Henry may not be for everyone, he is the perfect character to introduce to your child as the boy who we all would love to be but shouldn't. A fun character to laugh out loud with and see that even though Horrid Henry may be right, the consequences prove that there are better ways to go about getting what we want. These are the perfect books to get beginner chapter readers going!

    Great fun for kids. Each book in the series has 4 short stories that are laugh out loud funny. Good for reluctant readers.

    2nd grade reader. Probably more boys than girls, and interesting plots for those closet rebels. Funny and may get reluctant readers interested. Henry is interested in blood and guts and everything else is just out of his realm. He is truly horrid aand contrasts most definitely with his little brother who is so sweet that it makes Henry's teeth hurt. (Mine, too.)

The book has 4 stories, 1 per chapter, and each see Henry trying to bring some justice (and excitement) to what he sees as a boring world with everyone actively working against him. Over the top silly.Plots include new recipes for the school cafeteria, getting Henry's brother to do Henry's chores, and zombie vampires at the museum sleepover.The book was originally published in Great Britain and some of the wording may be unfamiliar to many readers, but it shouldn't be enough to stop them.

    An entertaining read that will leave readers laughing out loud, Horrid Henry and the Zombie Vampires will definitely be a hit for fans of this series. With Francesca's easy to read text, some laugh out loud moments, and the book's smallish size make this a fast paced read even the most reluctant reader will enjoy. This book's 4 short stories will entertain just about anyone with a second grade reading level and higher.

    Quite an interesting read. Available for most primary age children and some low ability secondary age children.Four different stories that are really inviting for the younger, (and possibly the) reluctant readers.
