Children's Literature - Bonita Herold
Henry is horrid, no doubt about it. In four different tales within the same book, we learn just how horrid he can be. When he discovers that his little brother's going to read his diary in front of the entire student body, Henry worries that he will be misrepresented. None of those rotten things he had done in the past week were his fault! Of course, he plots to read the diary so he can clear his name. The soccer field presents some challenges as well. When Miss Battle-Axe offers tickets to the Big Game to the winner of a lunch-time skirmish, Henry prepares to win in the only way he can—he cheats! And how does Horrid Henry handle shopping with his mother? Not very well! But both of them figure out how to get what they want. Finally, just how badly does Horrid Henry treat his arch enemy? And what made him his arch enemy? You don't even want to know. Parents will thank their lucky stars that their kids have never slunk as low as Henry. Kids will laugh at his horrid behavior, wishing they could behave just as badly. Worldwide, everyone loves the "Horrid Henry" series. Reviewer: Bonita Herold
