'a nice collection of 10 stories with lots of extra things... all very entertaining.' (Benjy Taylor (Aged 9) INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)
'Horrid Henry has long been a favourite with readers who prefer an anti-hero; a sort of modern cross between William Brown and Dennis the Menace... Francesca Simon's text is as witty as ever in this latest collection of favourite stories and Tony Ross's bright but slightly sinister illustrations are the perfectaccompaniement.' (Juliet Townsend THE SPECTATOR)
'More mayhem and hilarity occur in Francesca Simon's Horrid Henry's Wicked Ways, splendidly illustrated by Tony Ross. This contains ten favourite stories plus two new ones. Parents reading them aloud may be consoled to discover that Henry can always be relived upon to beahve worse than any of their own offspring.' (Nick Tucker INDEPENDENT 9.12.05)
