Horrid Henry's Author Visit by Francesca Simon
It is Book Week at Horrid Henry's school, and TJ Fizz, Henry's favourite author in the whole world, is coming in to talk to his class. So he can't believe his rotten luck when he is sent to listen to the Happy Nappy song with the Infants instead. He has to escape - but how?
The Early Reader series from Orion Kids are fantastic - they enable young children who are beginning to gain confidence in reading alone to enjoy reading. Partner this with popular characters such as Horrid Henry and I believe Orion Kids have got a winning partnership!
Horrid Henry is excited because his favourite author is visiting his school. However, Mrs Battleaxe has told the class she will not tolerate any bad behaviour - can Henry manage to behave in order for him to meet T J Fizz?
This is another fantastic book by Francesca Simon. The story was originally included in Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman, but has now been published in the Early Reader format for young readers. The story is intermingled with Tony Ross's illustrations which accompany the story perfectly. The pictures are full of the chaos and mayhem that follows Henry everywhere he goes.
This book would make a great addition to any child's bookshelf and is perfect for young children who are beginning to gain confidence in reading alone.
Thank you to the publishers, Orion Kids, for sending me the book to review.
