Horrid Henry's Homework by Francesca Simon
Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey. Horrid Henry is far too busy to bother with his stupid, boring spelling homework. He'll just have to come up with a spectacularly brilliant plan instead.
This book was originally included in the book 'Horrid Henry and the mummy's curse' but has now been given the Early Reader treatment and is a standalone book. It contains only the one story and is perfect for children who are beginning to read themselves.
The story is split into manageable chunks with lots of fantastic illustrations by Tony Ross bringing the story to life. He captures the mischief within Henry perfectly.
I would recommend this to the younger fans of Horrid Henry, who are beginning to read alone, or to read to children, while introducing the idea of chapter books.
Thank you to the publishers, Orion Children's Books, for sending me the book to review
