Horrid Henry

Horrid Henry is just that - HORRID!!! But with Francesca Simon as author and Tony Ross as illustrator - the kids are SURE to love him!! "Henry was horrid. Everyone said so, even his mother." So begins the story of Henry and his laugh-out-loud adventures. I sat here at my desk laughing, chuckling, and yes, even snorting at Henry's hilarious adventures - and if these books had me doing that, and I'm the YOUTH SERVICES LIBRARIAN (said sternly and with NO smile on my face!!) then imagine what boys and girls alike will be doing as they devour these short, easy-to-reading beginning chapter books. Simon is a genius - these will hook kids on books - and another great series to give to those reluctant-boy readers! Don't miss the whole series AND the upcoming video game!!

I work for the online marketing team at Random House Children’s Books. We have recently launched a new series called Gargoylz, which we think fans of Horrid Henry will love! Packed with mischief, mayhem and magic, Gargoylz follows the adventures of naughty schoolboys Max and Ben, and their cheeky gargoylz friends. Gargoylz are wacky little monsters that are super sneaky, super naughty and have super powers too!
Find out more about the books and meet the Gargoylz at
