Henry isn't quite as bad as Gantos' Rotten Ralph (you know, the very naughty red cat) but he's a lot worse than Kline's Horrible Harry. This series has been tremendously popular in the UK and now it's coming to the States. Henry just can't help being true to his ornery, wild self - kids will read about him and his brother Perfect Peter with amusement and some envy (wouldn't you just love to go through a day being Bad?). Great for kids just moving from Easy Readers to chapter books. Liberally illustrated with very funny Quentin Blake-like illustrations by Tony Ross.
Gr. 1 - 3.
