Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Dig through all the grisly groaners in Horrid Henry's Joke Book. You might even enjoy Perfect Peter's favorites too - even with Henry's disdainful running commentary." - BookLoons.com

"My oldest loved reading them with me and trying to figure them out (he does have a difficult time with jokes). In fact, he loved them so much that I sent the book into his classroom teacher. She loved it too and she shared it with the entire class." - Gadabout Media

"A laugh out loud for all ages!" - Spot To Read

"Filled with groan-worthy puns and gross-out humor, Horrid Henry's Joke Book is chock full of the sort of simplistic humor that kids love." - PortlandExaminer.com

"All in all it was a good laugh." - Cindy's Love of Books

"Get this into the hands of any jokesters in your life. Then run for cover." - Not Just For Kids

"We all need a good laugh and Horrid Henry delivers in the Horrid Henry's Joke Book." - Lori Calabrese

"All in all, a silly and fun collection of humor, Horrid-Henry style. Sure to be thoroughly enjoyed by any boy between the ages of 7 and 12. :)" - Everead

"Children will get a kick out of reading the jokes and then retelling them to friends and family - what better way to get hesitant young readers to pick up a book? While the book is intended for middle-grade readers, creative teachers and/or parents could easily use this with children much younger who understand the concept of jokes." - Katie's Literature Lounge

"Even though they are simple jokes, they are really quite funny. Even as an adult I was laughing out loud to a lot of them. Recommended for kids everywhere!" - SMS Book Reviews

These jokes are horrid. These jokes are guaranteed to make horrible little brothers feel sick and parents run screaming from the room. These jokes are so rude and so gross that-
"Hey! Peter! Stop reading right now. I said, put down my book-or else. These gross-out jokes are not for little toads!"
"Mooom! Henry's being mean to me!"
"Don't be horrid, Henry. Let Peter read your jokes."
"NO!"

Why didn't the skeleton and the monster fight?
The skeleton didn't have the guts.

Why was the Egyptian boy upset?

    Horrid Henry is at it again, although this time he's really trying to make us laugh. Horrid Henry's Joke Book, which is written by Francesca Simon and illustrated by Tony Ross is the latest in the series of stories about this rascally little boy who's always trying to get away with something.

    These jokes are exactly the kind that my daughter would have appreciated when she was seven to 10 years old. I know she would have told this knock-knock joke over and over again and expected her dad and I to laugh each time:

    "Knock. Knock.
    Who's there?
    Cows go.
    Cows go who?
    No they don't, they go moo."

    The jokes are silly and often play on words, which is what many young readers adore as they are just learning the ins and outs of language. And because it is a Horrid Henry book, the jokes are grouped into categories that match Henry's style. For instance, you'll find Mummy's Curse Jokes, Gross-Out Jokes, Scary Sitter Jokes, Underpants Jokes, and more. And of course, there's a section for Perfect Peter's Favorite Jokes, which Henry begs everyone not to read. Despite the banner that says, "Warning: Too rude for parents!" on the front cover, moms and dads should have fun reading these with their early readers.
