Horrid Henry Early Reader: Horrid Henry's Christmas Presents

  • I really enjoyed reading the Horrid Henry book. My favourite part was when Henry wrote the poem:

    “Dear old wrinkly mum, Don’t be glum, Cause you’ve got a fat tum, And an even bigger bum, Ho ho ho hum, Love from your son, Henry.”

    My favourite character was Horrid Henry as always he is so funny and naughty. The entire story was fabulous. This book would suit boys and girls from age 5 upwards.
