Francesca Simon is the author of the hugely successful Horrid Henry series, which has sold over 15 million copies. Henry is a terrible (but loveable) tearaway who leaves grown-ups in tears, and playmates cowering! Short chapters and line drawings from Tony Ross make these great choices for newly confident readers.

More about Francesca: “I was born in St Louis, Missouri, grew up in Los Angeles and attended both Yale and Oxford Universities, where I specialised in Medieval Studies. I then threw away a lucrative career as a medievalist and worked as a freelance journalist, writing for the Sunday Times, Guardian, Mail on Sunday, Telegraph, and Vogue.

After my son Joshua was born in 1989, I started writing children’s books full time.

I have published over 50 books, including the immensely popular Horrid Henry series, published in 17 countries and now a successful CITV animation series.

I live in London with my husband, son, and Tibetan Spaniel called Shanti.”

    One of the best in the Horrid Henry series. It’s is very funny and witty. I liked the part when Peter is sold of to Henry’s next door neighbour and arch-enemy.

    In this story Henry goes to sports day. His brother is in the egg and spoon race, he drops the egg and gets told off by Miss Battleaxe. Henry gets £3 for winning the egg and spoon race. The funny part is when his brother falls in the mud.
