Book Review - Horrid Henry Robs The Bank

About the Book
Four brand new stories in which Horrid Henry helps himself to all the money he needs to win his favorite board game, comes up with another spectacular money-making scheme for launching a newspaper with all the school gossip, vows vengeance on Perfect Peter when Peter steals his birthday party theme and has his own Pirate Party—and gets his revenge by taking over as head teacher when Peter plays school with his goody-goody friends.

About the Author and Illustrator
Francesca Simon was born in the United States and attended both Yale and Oxford universities. A former journalist, she now writes full time. She lives in North London, England, with her husband, Martin, and her son, Josh. Tony Ross is a prolific illustrator of books for children, including Martyn Beardsley's Sir Gadabout stories as well as his own. Tony has become one of the best known creators of original and traditional picture books and his work has been sold all over the world.

My Take on the Book
This is another great book from Francesca Simon in character that all parents love to hate Horrid Henry! While as a parent I cannot say that I like what I see in these books, especially with the fact event there are no consequences for Henry, my daughter seems to love the books and it encourages her to read which I love. We simply have a longer conversation about what is right and wrong with what Henry does it allows us to be closer in to what our expectations are of her, while she can still have fun with reading some of the antics that Henry does. This story was well written and is definitely a book that is great for young readers as it is not too long but it will still challenge and encourage your child to continue reading from beginning to end.
