Henry is horrid. His parents, younger brother, teachers, neighbours and relatives all say so. If someone’s put itching powder in someone’s swimming trunks or flattened all the tents on the family camping holiday, you can bet it’s Henry.
Henry is Lord High Excellent Majesty of the Purple Hand gang. He loves comics, money, practical jokes and hates brothers, injections, homework and well-meaning adults. From where Henry’s standing, life is just not fair – the rest of the world is against him. Teachers, relatives and babysitters alike try to avoid him at all costs. Even his parents argue over whose turn it is to look after him. Henry isn’t trying to be truly horrid – it’s just something that comes naturally to him.
Horrid Henry is a fictional character created by Francesca Simon and illustrated by Tony Ross. The first Horrid Henry book was written and published in 1994 by Orion Books and as of the end of 2010, there have been nineteen titles published, as well as numerous collections, activity books and joke books.Horrid Henry is in the Top 10 of the most borrowed books from libraries in the UK!
