Horrid Henry Rocks! By: Francesca Simon - Book Review

Before receiving this book I had never heard of Horrid Henry books and all I can say is that boy had we been missing out!  The first night my husband read this to my 5yr old son I heard lots of for real belly laughs coming from my son's room.  Belly laughs not only from my son but my husband, too!  Laughter is so contagious.  Heck, I even found myself giggling at the boys laughing.

When my husband finished the book and my son was tucked in for the night, he returned to our room and I immediately asked what all the silliness was about.  He told me he read the new book we got, Horrid Henry Rocks! and that it was hysterical.  Clearly our 5yr old LOVED it.

How better to described how much he loved it that asking Froggy Boy himself?

Mommy: "What did you like most about Horrid Henry Rocks! ?"
Froggy Boy:  "It's funny.  Yeah.  It's really, really funny."

Mommy:  "What's your favorite part of the book?"
Froggy Boy:  "The vampire show.  Someone tricked him about giving him a ticket for it."

Mommy:  "Do you think your friends would like Horrid Henry Rocks! ?"
Froggy Boy:  "Yep.  And I'm done.  I'm not answering anymore of your questions."

Gotta love how cooperative 5yr olds can be.  Argh.  So my husband and son have enjoyed reading Horrid Henry Rocks! together so much that they've now downloaded Horrid Henry Stink Bomb on the Nook!

Froggy Daddy:  "Horrid Henry is awesome.  It's like the books are written specifically for Froggy Boy.  The humor is right up his ally.  I was surprised, too, because there aren't a lot of pictures but he never lost interest."

So as your making your child's summer reading list, be sure to add Horrid Henry Rocks!.  You won't be disappointed, I promise!
