Book Description

July 1 2009 Horrid Henry
Horrid Henry reads Perfect Peter's diary and improves it; goes shopping with Mom and tries to make her buy him some really nice new sneakers; is horrified when his old enemy Bossy Bill turns up at school; and tries, by any means, to win the class soccer match and defeat Moody Margaret.

Francesca Simon is one of the world's best-loved children's authors. She is the only American to have ever won the Galaxy Book Award, and her creation, Horrid Henry, is the #1 bestselling chapter book series in the UK - with a hit TV show and over fifteen million copies sold! Each book contains four easy-to-read stories and hilarious illustrations by the one and only Tony Ross, so even the most reluctant of readers won't be able to resist Henry's amazing talent for trouble!

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrid Henry: Soccer Fiend Dec 29 2013
By Adell V. Newman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I will give Horrid Henry and the Soccer Fiend 4 stars because my two grandsons love the Horrid Henry series. My grandsons, 7 and 6, live many distant miles from me, and although I do visit them every few months (at least), in between my fly-in visits I read books and record them so they can have Grandma reading them a bedtime story. The boys and I have spent many nights laughing at the antics of Horrid Henry, but I do involve them in conversations about the fictional nature of Henry and that his fictional behavior is not always appropriate. I want them to enjoy fiction, but I also want them to understand that fiction is not real-life. I would not want my two grandsons emulating Horrid Henry, but I want them to enjoy the books in a kind of Walter Mitty imaginary world.
I think these books are best read to children by an adult so discussions can take place. Even in my recordings, I ask the questions about Henry's behavior that I would if I were sitting with them and reading.
1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid for children of any age Feb. 10 2013

Unfortunately, I bought each book for my seven year old son. Even he could not believe how "horrible" Henry behaved with absolutely NO consequences. One book has Henry singing about hitting an old person on the head with a cane. I am "horrified" that these books are published and further shocked they have been endorsed by parents. These books are so deplorable I will not pass along to friends or donate. They will end up in the garbage where they belong. Reckless content pretty much sums it up. Oh, I looked at the author's photo and let's just say I wasn't surprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perplexed Nov. 14 2009
By Tristram Shandy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought the book for my five year old soccer-playing grandson on the basis of a rave review by a panel of reviewers on Simon Mayo's BBC 4 show, which I listen to on podcast. The review was not for this particular book but for the Horrid Henry series in general. After previewing the book, however, I have two reactions: (1) although it is entirely is within my grandson's ability to comprehend the stories, their subject matter is not yet suitable for a child of this age, or so I find; and (2) the hilarity of the stories mentioned by the reviewers eluded me, despite my being a British-American by heritage (English and Irish, a reader of British literature by profession,and a lifelong lover of British humor. But give me Daniel Pinkwater or Shel Silverstein any time for young readers--although, I confess, I do not consider myself especially knowledgeable about much of contemporary children's literature. One final point: the book has been annoyingly Americanized, e.g., the U.K. title is "Horrid Henry and the Football Fiend," a much more alliterative title.
