Read full description of the books Horrid Henry's Nits:This is one of a large series of books, yet I have chosen this story as it is definitely something all children school going age can relate to. In this book, as in all the series, it is about a little boy with quite unpleasant tendencies and ideas who lives with his brother “Perfect Peter” and his Mum and Dad. It tells the rather hilarious story of Henry coming home with head lice and going under the rigorous treatment of his mum attempting to get rid of them, yet Horrid Henry has other plans! After the battle with his mum is won, Nitty Nora Bug Explorer Again comes to the rescue much to Henry’s disappointment, but not before he gets the chance to pass them to all his friends in his own attempt to get rid of them!
This setting is great for children’s perspective on family life as I think we can all relate to the characters whether we were/are considered “horrid” and hence have to deal with living in the shadow of the apparently “perfect” sibling, or of course being the “good” child and having to entertain the antics of your brother or sister less inclined to do what is asked of them. It is amusingly told with fitting illustrations, great for engaging the reader.
Read information about the authorFrancesca Simon was born in St Louis, Missouri, grew up in California, and attended both Yale and Oxford Universities, where she specialised in Medieval Studies. How this prepared her to write children’s books she cannot imagine, but it did give her a thorough grounding in alliteration.
She then threw away a lucrative career as a medievalist and worked as a freelance journalist, writing for the Sunday Times, Guardian, Mail on Sunday, Telegraph, and Vogue (US). After her son Joshua was born in 1989, she started writing children’s books full time. One of the UK’s best-selling children’s writers, Francesca has published over 50 books, including the immensely popular HORRID HENRY series, which has now sold over twelve milllion copies.
Francesca won the Children’s Book of the Year in 2008 at the British Book Awards for Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman. HORRID HENRY is published in 24 countries and is also an animated CITV series. She lives in London with her husband, son, and Tibetan Spaniel, Shanti.
