UK Kirkus Review »
More stories about Horrid Henry, whose long-suffering mum endures episodes of every parent's worst nightmare in daily doses. 'Horrid Henry's Hobby' captures sibling rivalry over collectable toys perfectly and adds an embarrassing supermarket scene so nearly true to life as to make any parent shudder. 'Horrid Henry's Homework' features the common nightly battle followed by Henry's attempts to deal with the problem in class by copying, and the unexpected way this backfires on him. In 'Horrid Henry's Swimming Lesson', Henry's excuses for not taking a swimming test all fail; his attempts to scupper the other children rebound on him, but just for once yield unexpected accolade and land him his five metre medal. In the title story, Henry nearly gets caught playing with his brother Perfect Peter's Egyptian mummy kit and has to do some fast talking - and acting - to get himself out of trouble. But, as so often, somehow Horrid Henry gets what he wants, if not all the way. Fun stories simply told to encourage early efforts at reading alone. (Kirkus UK)
