"Henry, not so horrid that adults can’t constrain him, gives children permission for their desires and anger"

To celebrate 25 years since Horrid Henry first stomped in, and sales of more than 20m copies, Simon has written a 25th collection of four stories. The publisher has introduced a variety of expressive fonts and more succinct titles. But the basics — the alliterative epithets, and Henry’s childish eagerness for treats, excitement and junk food, thwarted by his parents’ idealism — have not changed. Nor has his rivalry with his prissy brother, Perfect Peter.
