Horrid Henry’s Sleepover by Orion books is part of their early reader series which I think is perfect for young readers to bridge the gap between large style picture books and paperbacks.
My 6yr old daughter loves Horrid Henry, is always giggling at his antics on television so a Horrid Henry book is ideal for her. She is a fairly competent reader for her age and is able to sit and read this herself although does require some assistance with certain words so it’s good to sit down with her and listen to her read aloud.
The story follows Horrid Henry going to a friends house for a sleepover. Although he’s done it many times before, he’s always got up to his usual mischief and been sent home but things work out slightly differently on this occasion and he chooses to go home rather than being sent home. You’ll have to read the story to find out what happens…
Miss M loved Horrid Henry’s Sleepover book as I predicted and it’s been beside her bed since we received it. She find’s it hilarious with some of his antics and the pictures really break up the text in the early reader books which keep her entertained and maintain her interest in reading.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the book in order to write the review.
