This book is a childish book because it talks about this boy named Henry who they call horrid. They call him horrid because he is always rude to his parents, siblings,and teacher ect. He calls everybody names like his brother perfect peter. I recommend this book to 2nd grade-4th grade because the book is very childish.

Horrid Henry’s Christmas cracker by Francesca Simon
Horrid Henry was a naughty boy both at home and school. They were supposed to do a Christmas play in school and Horrid Henry wanted to play the lead but his teacher said he was not going to as he had played the lead when he was in the infants’ class. Instead he had to play the role of an innkeeper. This made Horrid Henry upset as it was a passive role. His young brother Peter got the lead role and that made Horrid Henry even more upset.

I remember getting this thinking all my Christmas' had come out once, no pun intended. My parents had bought me this as a surprise Christmas present when I was a kid and it was one of the best presents I ever got and this book is definitely one of my favourite books out of the entire series.

I liked Horrid Henry's Christmas Play story because he ruins the play by making his part longer. He didn't really ruin it just forgot his line, which was only one word.

Ok, alright. *takes a deep breath* So I just finished Horrid Henry. I know it is really embarrassing for a thirteen year old to say that she read Horrid Henry but I just wanted to re-read my childhood reads. Yeah. And I really liked this. Is there anything wrong in reviving childhood memories? I think not
