Horrid Henry is really mean and horrid :|
Hannah Lassey
"Horrid Henry Tricks The Tooth Fairy" was the first short story amongst four in this book. This story was about how Horrid Henry is jealous when everyone else is losing a tooth and getting money from the tooth fairy so he tries to find a way to tick the tooth fairy into giving him some money which proves difficult. The second story " Horrid Henry's Wedding" is about when Horrid Henry is forced to be a page boy for his cousin's wedding. He is forced to wear a horrible, frilly costume and so tries ...more

This book I would recommend as a independent book for children at the ages 8-10 for guided reading or quiet reading sessions. Also it could also been used to read out loud to a group of 6-8 years during a class. This will be a good way to ask the children to use their imagination to guess what will happen next and encourage them to write their own version of the next part. This enhances creativity. The story is part of a collection of a well known character called Henry who is mischievous in com ...more
The pranks were pretty funny and it was especially funny how he tried to trick the tooth fairy. He gets into trouble really easily, even sometimes when it is Peter who is causing the trouble behind their backs.
I liked the book. Henry swallows a tooth. Henry goes to a wedding. Margaret plans to stay at Henry's house for two weeks. This time, even mom and dad are annoyed. Henry gets a new teacher.

This is a super cute children's book about a boy named Horrid Henry and some of his friends. Each book has 4 stories in it. I was fortunate enough to get this one where Horrid Henry tricks the tooth fairy, ruins a wedding, deals with Moody Margaret, and tries to run off his new teacher. I read this book out loud to my DS age 5, and DD age 3. They both really enjoyed it. DS says his favorite story was about the tooth fairy. Ironic since he is about to lose his first tooth!

While some may not appre
The ridiculous Horrid Henry strikes again. I am not a fan of this series. I'm sure kids like them, but I find little redeeming qualities about Henry. I feel utter resentment for his parents, and a bit of resentment toward the author. Some of these books are good, funny, and enjoyable. Some of them, like this one, are just time I wish I could get back. Sigh.
Another book of funny tales involving the antics of Horrid Henry and his gang of friends.
This time the action involves in him being jealous of Perfect Peter who loses a tooth so he resolves to do the same, then he has to attend a wedding as a pageboy, Moody Margaret comes to stay when her parents go on holiday and whom Henry schemes to get rid of and a new teacher arrives at the school who Henry is determined to annoy.
Told in a way that is not patronising but with an element of naughtiness that
I really liked this book. I like Horrid Henry. Francesca's Henry books just make me laugh. It was great. Henry's toad brother was always being beaten up by the main rascal. Pretty much no problems, I just wanted to give it 4 stars. But I want it to be 4.5. (**** 1/2)

Great Book!
My son thought this book hilarious and has requested other Horrid Henry books. Even though funny at times, I don't particularly like some of the antics Henry pulls. I had to make it quite clear to my son that he would be in BIG trouble if he even thought to do some of these things!

Having first read this as a schoolchild, when I saw it on a shelf in the local library I picked it up again. I remember thinking of Henry's behaviour as funny and daring, whereas now I'd dread him being my child. The series is a good way to evoke children's imaginations.
I am not sure if I like the character of horrid Henry or not. He really is horrid and most people would call him a brat. I do think that his behavior is so over the top that he would appeal to reluctant readers.
Cracking bedtime read with Little Mister. The stories are *just* the right length to get through one an evening with him and he's always looking forward to the next one.
I just discovered Horrid Henry - I hear he's very popular in the UK at the moment, and I can see why!

Francesca Simon was born in St Louis, Missouri, grew up in California, and attended both Yale and Oxford Universities, where she specialised in Medieval Studies. How this prepared her to write children’s books she cannot imagine, but it did give her a thorough grounding in alliteration.

She then threw away a lucrative career as a medievalist and worked as a freelance journalist, writing for the Sun
