Rabid Rebecca: Whenever I'm down in the dumps, I buy myself a new T-shirt.
Horrid Henry: So that's where you get them!
Just a few of the gems you'll find in Francesca Simon's latest Horrid Henry installment. These books are very popular with kids, and I can certainly see why. As with most joke books, I thought some of the jokes were funny, some were roll-your-eyes-kinda-dumb, and some were gross. Though as for the gross, Horrid Henry does give us a great big "Warning: Too rude for parents!" on the cover. I actually expected more "bathroom humor" than there was, so in that way, I was pleasantly surprised. All in all, a silly and fun collection of humor, Horrid-Henry style. Sure to be thoroughly enjoyed by any boy between the ages of 7 and 12. :)
