Horrid Henry books are pretty popular in our house at the moment. At least with the 6 year old anyway. He isn’t quite at the stage of reading them himself but they are his book of choice at bedtime. Horrid Henry is an unpleasant child who loves to play pranks on his “enemies” ie his brother Perfect Peter and other classmates. Basically he is the antithesis of a good role model! I cringe when I read the books but at the same time they are hugely entertaining. We use his misdemeanour’s as an opportunity to chat about what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour and what we would do in the same situations.

We were kindly sent a Horrid Henry fancy dress outfit from Simply Fancy Dress to review. We received a Large (7-8 years) which fits him perfectly as he is tall for his age. It is a very good quality outfit, made from hard wearing Polyester with PVC trimmings. He loves it and looks great! It will be perfect for World Book Day on Thursday 7 March. Simply Fancy Dress have a fantastic selection of World Book Day fancy dress costumes including characters from the Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter and Disney to name a few. They are delivered super fast and have free delivery too which is always a bonus!


Horrid Henry’s latest book is a World Book day book and is available from 25 February for £1 or you can use the voucher that children receive through school or preschool to purchase it. We already have one of the other books, “Giraffe’s can’t Dance” which is a great read and perfect for preschoolers.


What do you think to Horrid Henry? Do your children love to get dressed up for World Book Day? Would love to hear your views!

We also wore this outfit to meet the author Francesca Simon here!

Ethan is just starting to get into Horrid Henry books and anything that encourages him to read isn’t a bad thing. Personally I’m not sure I *like* HH that much. Here Ethan is in his Horrid Henry fancy dress costume. […]
