My daughter was unsure about Horrid Henry. We had not heard of it before we were sent the book and DVD for review. After I read the DVD synopsis and gave her the glop (shown above), we started reading the chapter in Horrid Henry about when he and Moody Margaret made glop in the kitchen. She only mildly enjoyed the story and wanted more colorful pictures. That lead to wanting to watch the DVD so she could visually see more of what she was already imagining.
I am not a big fan of Horrid Henry or Moody Margaret. There is too much bad behavior and not enough consequences for the behavior in the book. My daughter commented on how bad Henry and Margaret both were, and we were able to have a discussion about what they were doing wrong and what they should be doing. So at least that was a good thing. The books are recommended for grades 2-5. Horrid Henry is a bit advanced for her, and I don’t think, at this time, we will get any more of the books. The idea of making glop is exciting for her now though, and I do remember being excited about making silly concoctions in the kitchen when I was young.
