A grand example of how an audio production can take a pretty great book into the 'fabulous' category... A cool update of the Just William series, this is a superb performance, along with musical interludes and sound effects that keep everyone entertained.

My grandchildren all love this book and have the series at home. My 7 year old nice wants her own full series. Great for girls as well even though the title suggests it is for boys. Since I never wanted a girlie girlie daughter I am also delighted. I want the girls to be independent and sensible and have a great sense of humor. There are many other books that are funny and education and fun. Like the Paper Bag Princess, the Practical Princess, Fire Girl and so many of the books by Jean Fritz, James Stevenson I think, Mercer Meyer, Judith Viorst and Patterson?. I've taught 7 children in the family to read between ages of 3 and 6 with the Dr. Seuss books and games I invented. I loved children's books and used to buy them at Goodwill shop near my college. Unfortunately a lot of these great books are out of print. I often bought several copies to give as presents and many to keep for all these children when they have them in their turn. I rarely get them back: I put them on the table in the family room and before I know it I have to buy more. They take them home, on vacation and all great readers. I just looked through and saw that many of these books were by Scholastic or Harper Trophy. Some of the Scholastic Books are out of print. but the Carrot Seed and the Magic Fish are re-issued but the old illustrations pleased me most. so I search for them on web, esp. Amazon second hand books sometimes on Alibris and Portland bookstores and have been able to replenish some. I rarely find something I really like for young children in bookstores that are way too cute to be educational and fun and these classics should be re-issued among many others.Read more ›

I purchase and read the Horrid Henry books for my 5 year old grandson. When he visits he loves for me to read to him, and the antics of Henry has him laughing out loud. Horrid Henry is a brat and a troublemaker but things usually work out for him in the end.
Horrid Henry is a little stinker, but he does get the interest going in small children. They seem to love him.

My 8 year old son laughs and laughs reading these books. He says they are really funny. He stays interested in them all the way through. He likes that Horrid Henry does everything wrong. It makes him feel better about himself. Both parents also found the books entertaining and well-written.

This is a really funny series. Henry is really horrible and it's fun to see my kids reactions when reading about his antics. Horrid Henry uses a stink bomb as a toxic weapon in his war with Moody Margaret and all his tricks to win the school reading competition, goes on a sleepover, and has the joy of seeing his teacher in hot water with the principal.

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 3.2 - AR Pts: 1.0

The book is all about how Horrid Henry and Rude Ralph were throwing stink bombs. The stink bombs smell like rotten eggs and dead fish. In this book Horrid Henry was also bullying his little brother. Then Horrid Henry and Rude Ralph throw stink bomb at Moody Margret’s house, it is very funny. I give it 5 out of 5 because I enjoyed it very much.

My 7-year old began behaving, well, horribly after reading these books! I read one myself, and was appalled. The kid Henry has no redeeming features, he's just plain mean. The books are full of Henry scheming, being mean to his family and friends, and causing all sorts of problems. I could get that if there was some love underneath it all, or a sense that Henry was just a regular old kid after all. That doesn't come through in these books. As such, Horrid Henry is banned in our house, and we read all sorts of other Newbury and Caldecott books instead. My son's behavior improved remarkably a few days later. Crazy stuff, and I highly recommend you stay away if you are considering this series. Or check one out of the library and see for yourself.

My son is 7 and has to read each day for 20 minutes. At first this was a struggle but when we found Horrid Henry's Stinkbomb and the other books in the series, my son is reading for 40 minutes some-days! It has been enjoyable to see him love to read and laugh out loud at while reading these books.
