Read full description of the books:
Horrid Henry Meets the Queen sees the Queen visit Henry’s school. However, much to Henry’s dismay his brother Perfect Peter is chosen by Mrs Battle-Axe to greet her on behalf of the school. All Henry wants to do is ask the Queen how many TV’s she has! In his annoyance Henry winds up his brother about his meeting with royalty only to confuse him when the real meet and greet happens. In his determination to ask the Queen his dying question, in typical Henry fashion he finds a way to get noticed, in the most unusual way! /much to the dismay of her Majesty!!
I love the Horrid Henry series and think Henry is a great loveable character which many children can relate to. With similarities to other famous ‘naughty’ characters such as Dennis the Menace, Mini the Minx and Just William, it brings me back straight to my own childhood! I love the link to history in this book which creates a good opportunity to take a glimpse into Tudor royalty. There is a lot of suspense throughout the story which makes it a great page turner as we know Henry is about to do something wrong, it’s just anticipating what that will be!
The Early Reader series create a great transition children to move away from picture books as it does contain a lot of detailed illustrations within the story, but it looks like a reading book and has a lot more text. For this reason I feel that the book would be particularly suitable for upper KS1 and lower KS2 children to read independently for pleasure which would encourage them to feel a sense of achievement when completing the book. As it is part of the Horrid Henry series it would appeal to children and could help capture their enjoyment of reading, wanting to read more in the series with the ambition to move on to the more detailed Horrid Henry stories. This book could also be read during story time and would link very nicely to history, as a starting point or initial assessment of the children about ‘The Tudors’. In literacy children could partake in a hot seating activity to discuss how they would feel meeting the Queen and could even write a letter asking her questions or inviting her to their school.

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.
