Horrid Henry is 20!

Yes its true Horrid Henry turns 20 this year, and he hasn’t aged a bit since Francesca Simon wrote the first book back in 1994. With over 20 million books sold, I think there must be at least one copy in every UK house.

The celebrations this year include the release of a special 20th anniversary edition book. The book includes brand new material, and 20 things you didn’t know about Horrid Henry. The book also contains 4 stories, Horrid Henry’s Perfect Day, Horrid Henry’s Dance Class, Horrid Henry and Moody Margaret and Horrid Henry’s Holiday. This book comes with a fun peep through cover, and the boy finds this style of book east to read. With illustrations to break up the text they are not intimidating for the reluctant reader.
