Horrid Henry

by ,
  • (63 reviews)

    11-year-old Horrid Henry began enthralling young readers with his bad behaviour in his first book published in 1994. Alongside his little brother Perfect Peter, his school nemesis Moody Margaret and other characters including Weepy William, Henry embarks on typical childhood adventures. His defiant and daring nature sees him playing pranks and causing trouble wherever he goes.
     
    Written by author Francesca Simon, with bright and lively illustrations by Tony Ross, there are 25 books in the series, published in 27 languages with a hugely successful TV series adaptation. Millions of copies have sold worldwide as children engage with the hilariously naughty antics of Henry.
