Horrid Henry and the Soccer Fiend by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry reads Perfect Peters diary and improves it; goes shopping with Mom and tries to make her buy him some really nice new sneakers; is horrified when his old enemy Bossy Bill turns up at school; and tries by any means, to win the class soccer match and defeat Moody Margaret.PRAISE FOR HORRID HENRY Why Horrid Henry?Kids love it! I love the Horrid Henry books by Francesca Simon. They have lots of funny bits in. And Henry always gets into trouble! Mia, age 6, BBC Learning is FunIts easy to see why Horrid Henry is the bestselling character for 5-8 year olds. Liverpool EchoBecause its funny My two boys love this book and I have actually had tears running down my face and had to stop reading because of laughing so hard. My oldest son is rereading all the books in this series on his own now and he still loves them. Happy reading! T. Franklin, ParentA modern comic classic. SF Said, Guardian Childrens Books SupplementKids get to be harmlessly rebellious Henry is a beguiling hero who has entranced millions of reluctant readers... little rebels will love this collection and even little angels will be secretly thrilled by Henrys anti-heroic behaviour. HeraldHenrys naughtiness is a yardstick against which children can get a sense of their own moral goodness and social justice What is brilliant about the books is that Henry never does anything that is subversive. She creates an aura of supreme naughtiness (of which children are in awe) but points out that he operates within a safe and secure world. Emily Turner, Angels And Urchins MagazineReaches the most important age group - children who are learning to read I have tried out the Horrid Henry books with groups of children as a parent, as a babysitter, and as a teacher. Children love to either hear them read aloud or to read them themselves. The books are spot on for the 5-8 age range and are fun for the adults who share them too. Danielle Hall, TeacherThe structure provides new readers with a real sense of accomplishment My son is 7 years old and a big Horrid Henry fan. This book lived up to his expectations! Horrid Henry is like most boys: he always has a plan and is always getting into mischief! It was amusing, and he could not put it down. Cant wait for the next. He read it cover to cover by himself in 2 days! That for me sells a book! He cant wait for the next one to be published. He has recommended it to all his friends. Mrs. Tami Gold, ParentReaches both boys and girls equally Wonderfully appealing to girls and boys alike, a precious rarity at this age. Judith Woods, Times BooksA global publishing phenomenon with 12 million copies sold!WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT HORRID HENRY:Parents reading them aloud may be consoled to discover that Henry can always be relied upon to behave worse than any of their own offspring. IndependentAn absolutely fantastic series and surely a winner with all children. My son took this book as his favourite during book week at his school and converted a few children to the cause. Long live Francesca Simon and her brilliant books! More, more please!My 5-year-old adores them so much he couldnt wait to start reading because of them.I really like
