Horrid Henry is a typical British boy. Causes troubles, hates girls, and loves money. He does wicked deeds such as dumping his little brother, Perfect Peter in the bin, and scaring all the money off Peter as well. He is said to have brown hair and a strong sense of humor. He hates girls, especially his arch-rival Moody Margaret, but sometimes plays with her because she is VERY rich and has tons of toys. His best friend is Rude Ralph, another rude and horrid boy. They often work together to trick Peter. Henry is also the leader of the Purple Hand Gang.
Henry is the star of the TV and book series Horrid Henry, which features daily aspects of his life, such as his ongoing battle with Miss Battleaxe, the worst teacher ever, having turf wars with their rival The Secret Club, and prank his smelly toady little brother. It is very funny and most boys like to read them because it is very much like their own life. This series is a page flipping work of art, there’s no turning back once you start!
I LOVE this series. The characters are wicked, the story is funny and the illustrations are absolutely EPIC. If hope MY life could be like that, battling teachers, adults and girls till’ the day ends! Wow!
Way to go Francesca Simon! You really have out done yourself this time! Since its publishing it has sky-rocketed into a best-seller, and more books are published all the time.
