Horrid Henry’s Wedding is a book written by Francesca Simon and illustrated by Tony Ross. This red Early Readers book is the next step on your child’s reading journey. It will be released on 24th April 2014 and published by Orion Books.
The book is paperback containing about 80 pages with seven chapters. The font comes in various sizes and simple words are used that are easy to read by school children. Each page contains a nice balance of sentences and full colour illustrations. It feels like quite a big book for Mr K and he had to stop reading out loud after a couple of chapters and save the rest for the next day.
In this story, it tells how Horrid Henry hates weddings. Before we read this story, Mr K already knew the plot as he had watched it on television. Horrid Henry’s horrible older cousin Prissy Polly is getting married to Pimply Paul, and Henry and Peter have to be pageboys. He was forced to wear a lilac ruffled shirt, green satin knickerbockers, tights, pink cummerbund and pointy white shoes with gold buckles. He tried his best to avoid being a pageboy but wormy worm couldn’t wait Peter! So Horrid Henry decided to mess up the wedding in his own horrid way. If you want to know what horrid things he did, you need to read the book! It is hilarious!
Once again, this is a very well written story by Francesca. This is a fun and hilarious storyline to read at bedtime. Mr K loves Horrid Henry books and reads them over and over again.
