4.0 out of 5 stars Perplexed Nov. 14 2009
By Tristram Shandy - Published on
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars Horrid Henry: Soccer Fiend Dec 29 2013
By Adell V. Newman - Published on
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Funny (AR) reading level 3.5 - AR Pts: 1.0 Dec 15 2015
By Madison T. Edwards - Published on
Format: Library Binding
This is a fun series. My son thinks Henry is Horrid and hilarious!

Horrid Henry reads and improves Perfect Peter's diary, goes shopping with his mother and tries to get her to buy him nice sneakers, and tries to win the class soccer match by any means necessary.

This is an accelerated reader book. I'm always looking for interesting AR books for my children to read since they have to have so many points every grading period. (AR) reading level 3.5 - AR Pts: 1.0
