Horrid Henry Rocks – Book Review

Under 8’s love Horrid Henry.  He is a Just William for the modern age.  Chaos always follows in his well-meaning way.

This volume of adventures contains four new stories: Horrid Henry’s invasion, Moody Margaret’s Sleepover, Horrid Henry’s Autobiography and Horrid Henry Rocks. 

With settings ranging from Secret club sleepovers, conflicts with the Purple hand gang to school writing lessons and a Killerboy Rats concert it is guaranteed to please.  The illustrations by Tony Ross add to the delight – and help reluctant readers to follow the story lines. 

The themes are ones which appeal to young kids – especially if they are already in conflict with brothers and sisters.
