    I think these books are funny, but a tad annoying. it's a bit of a bad example to kids (pretty sure my brother took some tips from henry)

    ‘Horrid Henry and the Secret Club’ by Francesca Simon is one of the books from the very popular Horrid Henry series. The story follows the main protagonist, Henry, whose bad behaviour infuriates his parents, teachers and even his local doctor. All his bad behaviour is in stark contrast to his very well behaved little brother, Perfect Peter. This story makes good use of alliteration for the children’s names throughout (i.e. Greedy Graham and Weepy William).

The story follows the main protagonist, Henry, whose bad behaviour infuriates his parents, teachers and even his local doctor. All his bad behaviour is in stark contrast to his very well behaved little brother, Perfect Peter. This story makes good use of alliteration for the children’s names throughout (i.e. Greedy Graham and Weepy William). In this particular edition, Henry does everything he can to avoid an injection, plays pranks on Sour Susan and even manages to soak everyone at his own birthday party! This particular book is broken down into four different chapters and the book features some rough style sketches for illustrations, reminiscent of the drawings used for Roald Dahl’s books. Bearing in mind the content, themes and language used, I would recommend these books for use by Year 4 or Year 5 children.

    The book was very funny. I really liked the way the boy Henry thought of ways to get rid of the moody grouch, Margaret.

    Four more unconnected stories in the second book in this series. One of them does hint at some comeuppance for Henry but he is mostly unpunished for his actions still. Suitable for very new readers with help. Based in the first two books in the series I understand the appeal of them without ever feeling that they are superior to other series that are aimed at the same age group.

    I really like this book because it's very funny and I like how the stories always end at "horrid Henry and the secret club". Henry always has plans that makes something horrible. But I don't like "perfect" Peter because he should be always perfect. This book is very nice and I recommend those books for kids who are sly.

    Horrid Henry and the Secret Club is the second book in the Horrid Henry series. It is by hit author, Francesca Simon and illustrated by the amazing, Tony Ross. The book includes four stories Horrid Henry's Injection, Horrid Henry and the Secret Club, Perfect Peter's Horrid Day and Horrid Henry's Birthday Party. Horrid Henry's Injection: Horrid Henry, his brother and his friends are waiting for their to be called out. For them to get an injection.

It is by hit author, Francesca Simon and illustrated by the amazing, Tony Ross. The book includes four stories Horrid Henry's Injection, Horrid Henry and the Secret Club, Perfect Peter's Horrid Day and Horrid Henry's Birthday Party. Horrid Henry's Injection: Horrid Henry, his brother and his friends are waiting for their to be called out. For them to get an injection. Henry isn't scared of anything, all apart from injections. When Henry's name is called by Nurse Needle, he is scared but soon enough he has away of getting out of the injection. I didn't like this that much. The story moved far too quick and for no reason for the most part. I did like the story but it just didn't do much for me - 2.5 Stars. Horrid Henry and the Secret Club: Horrid Henry causes problems in the Secret Club which leads to Margret banning Susan from the club and Henry has a dispute with Peter which leads to him being kicked out. Henry and Margret have plans to get back at each other but they backfire... I loved this story. It was fast pacing and it was definitely worth the read - 4 Stars. Perfect Peter's Horrid Day: Peter never gets noticed for being perfect, while Henry gets noticed for being Horrid. Then Peter gets an idea, a horrid idea, that he is going to be horrid for a day... I loved the story again. It made a change having Peter as the main character. It was funny in places and it was just a great story - 4 Stars. Horrid Henry's Birthday Party: It's Henry's Birthday and that means a party is about to take place. Henry can't wait to go to Lazer Zap that is until they say he's banned from going there. This changes everything, all at once, the party will be held at Henry's house. What could possibly go wrong? The story was great but I thought it was too stretched out unlike the first story - 3.5 Stars. The main character, Horrid Henry is great but I find him a tad annoying. I like the originality of his character that Simon has done with it. The secondary character, Perfect Peter, he's a great character, in which I can relate to him as he's clean and tidy and whatnot. Meanwhile the parents don't do that much apart from yell at Henry and praise Peter, which I find boring. In conclusion, it wasn't a bad read. The author, Francesca Simon, is great what she does but there isn't a balance. She goes from writing stories in a fast pace tone and the next is a slow pace tone. While the illustrator, Tony Ross, is really good at what he does. It was a good book but there is a lot of room for improvement!

    This is why I was through with these books after three tiny volumes of basic writing (despite the fast reading): most of the characters mess with my nerves immensely, I just can't stand them! I just don't enjoy myself, and if I saw my little cousins reading this with delight, I would slap some of my good children-targeted books beneath their tiny noses. (like the Foxwood Tales) Once again, - I take a deep breath - the parents and their little ball of joy, Perfect Peter (who would make a perfect p This is why I was through with these books after three tiny volumes of basic writing (despite the fast reading): most of the characters mess with my nerves immensely, I just can't stand them! I just don't enjoy myself, and if I saw my little cousins reading this with delight, I would slap some of my good children-targeted books beneath their tiny noses. (like the Foxwood Tales) Once again, - I take a deep breath - the parents and their little ball of joy, Perfect Peter (who would make a perfect prefect). Peter expects to be complimented on things my parents expected me to do without a blink, as my duty as a civilized human-being and as someone with common sense. He expects compliments for sitting at the table, eating properly and with tableware, for not messing with food (who would compliment anyone for that?! It's common sense!), etc... He obviously only behaves well to get attention from grown-ups, it's sad. The parents however, only live to reprimand Henry, without even looking at what the two siblings are really doing. And their favouritism is so visible, even when Peter clearly does something wrong, they still argument with idiotic sentences like "If Peter called you names, it's because you provoked him!" Also, I despise parents who admonish children by mistakes they didn't do on purpose, like breaking dishes. Anyone can have an accident, and making someone feel bad about failing (specially when it's something whose avoidance was not on their power) is not a positive reinforcement. Lastly, as for "The Secret Club" story, Henry and Moody Margaret are too much alike and they would make the perfect duo of mischief. Too bad they haven't realized it. Or too bad if they do, since the neighbourhood will get a lot less friendly and peaceful.

    I read this Horrid Henry book as the series are a bit of a craze amoungst my year 4 children at the moment. The book is broken into four stand alone stories (Horrid Henry's Injection, Horrid Henry and the Secret Club, Perfect Peter's Horrid Day, Horrid Henry's Birthday Party), all based around the character of Horrid Henry. These stories are fun to read and will be engaging for all children as they draw on experiences most children will of had. The language of these books is fantastic.

These stories are fun to read and will be engaging for all children as they draw on experiences most children will of had. The language of these books is fantastic. The alliteration of each character's name (Horrid Henry, Weepy William, Perfect Peter) gives the story a poetic flow and makes it fun to read. Either the character's characteristics or job are outlined in their name (Nurse Needle). This immediately creates an image of the character in a child's mind. Various language features and literacy devices are used to great effect throughout the book such as ellipses, capital letters for emphasis, repetition and speech. The text is complimented every few pages with cartoon illustrations which add to the action or character descriptions. I can see why these books have been very popular. I think this book would be most effective for independent reading as it is very accessible. I would suggest this book to 7 - 9 year olds.

    As the title suggests 'Horrid Henry', Henry is as horrid as can be and the irony of this book is that his brother is known as 'Perfect Peter'. This book creates a setting for imagination very well, as you imagine how Henry imagines his plans and executes them. The book can be read by all ages, but for independent reading the children should be in Year2 or above. The front cover is appealing and can instigate an instant attraction.

    Not my favorite, definitely. Though it has some things that can be funny, I don't like the general tone. I don't like Henry being so (but soooo) horrid. It is too much to me and I don't think that's a good example to give to children. I'm not saying that we should give children perfectly well behaved characters (I didn't like Henry's brother, Perfect Peter either), but Henty got a bit on my nerves.

    Horrid Henry and the Secret Club by Francesca Simon - decided to read aloud this book series with my son. It is quite amusing. Honestly, I don't know how much I'll tolerate reading it though. Reminds me of Rotten Ralph series by Jack Gantos which I appreciate initially but overall needed to take a long break from it.

    Enjoyable read with lots of laughs and mischief. Easy to read and follow and with underlying themes to teach children about life presented as funny pranks and realistic events.
