Horrid Henry And The Abominable Snowman

Maxym

I like this book because Henry sneaks back into his classroom. Miss Lovely actually said he can go to Miss Battle-Axe's class. Miss Battle-Axe fell for Horrid Henry's trick that he was on his good behavior and she let him in.

Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman by Francesca SimonOne of the highly acclaimed “Horrid Henry” series, this edition features the aforementioned “Abominable Snowman” as one of four short stories within the book.Being my first experience of reading a “Horrid Henry” and with little prior knowledge, my only inkling as to what to expect was that the book was likely to centre around the goings on of a mischievous central character and his humorous misadventures.What I discovered was four genuinely funny and enjoyable tales of Horrid Henry’s escapades of teasing his brother, “Perfect Peter”, and getting into scrapes that invariably tend back – fire. “The Abominable Snowman” demonstrates this through Henry sabotaging his brother’s snowman by sneakily placing it on top of his own creation in order to have the biggest snowman in the neighbourhood and potentially beat off the competition, amongst whom includes Moody Margeret and Sour Susan, to claim the prize of a year’s free ice cream for the best snowman, courtesy of the local ice cream parlour.This ends in disaster for Henry as the snowmen across the neighbourhood all melt over night. All except Perfect Peter’s which managed to stand tall after being placed at the very top of Henry’s very own creation.The cleverly endearing alliteration of character’s names is a common theme throughout, “Stuck Up Steve” being another example. This helped to add the likeability of the character’s, as well as the stories themselves, which all have an overriding moral to be learned and gave me clear indication as to why Francesca Simon’s “Horrid Henry” collection has been such a hit with children and parents alike. ...more

Henry is horrid and his neighbor is Moody Margaret and poor, poor little brother Peter. Good for begining readers who like a little naughty to chew on.

Horrid Henry is back and he’s up to mischief again. This time he’s trying to win a year’s worth of treats from a local ice cream parlor, getting into trouble on a boring rainy day, giving makeovers, and listening to his favorite author in Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman.

We didn't like the cover story (the first one) very much.2. Grázlik Gabo a daždivý deň - keď sa nedá byť na počítači ani pozerať telka, najlepšie je potrápiť mladšieho brata... "Prezývky, ktoré nemám rád"3. Škola krásy Náladovej Nade - this is quite weak story and, repeating in ideas

4. Grázlik Gabo a návšteva v škole "Grázlik Gabo sa zobudil. Cítil sa zvláštne.... Tešil sa." - a skoro mu to nevyšlo. Toto bolo napínavé, vynaliezavé.

Silly does not automatically mean funny. Low quality stories with low quality drawings abusing the little children who don't know stuff like the snowman on top would have melted first as it was more exposed to the light. And the parents end up giving bad example to their own children: the unpleasant boy is hit over and over by everybody turning him more into a bully, but hey, god wanted people to have free will, right?

As a prospective primary education teacher, I am always looking into the children's books and seeing what would be good in a classroom and what is not.Horrid Henry always goes down well in the classroom, there are obvious morals to the Horrid Henry: manners and the rules of life are common traits throughout these books.This one is no exception, it is a delightful book for young children and makes the adults smile as well.

I didn't enjoy it at all. Some stories felt like there was no ending and I really could not like Henry. Roald Dahl and David Walliams are doing a much better job writing children books. I decided to give the author a chance because I thought she'd be similar to David Walliams but boy how wrong I was.

Maybe my 6 year old self would have found a way to like this book.

Connor Mcgregor

The horrid henry series has been really funny and interesting, especially this book. I is about a boy called henry, he always pranks people and annoyed his little brother. this book is about him trying to win a snowman competition to win a years serply of ice cream.

LeeAnn

I really liked this book -- except the last chapter/story. The snowman story is original, funny, and creative. The rainy day story is fine. The makeover story has a great twist ending. But the last one fell flat. So, two stars for this book.

Artemis AshAnna

I liked it because Henry and Margaret try to play tricks with the snowman.

Simone

I liked this book because cuz Horrid Henrey kept calling his brother Perfect Peter, the duke of poop!

My daughter downloaded (checked out) this book on my Nook from our local library. She read it in one evening and laughed out loud at different parts.

Jess Harris

The Class Loved this on - even more scamp type activity than usual

Charlie

This was the first Horrid Henry I read. I didn't like as much as the other ones because I hadn't got to know the books very well.

Een goed boekje om te beginnen met Engels lezen.

Aidan

This is a brilliant book. Horrid Henry wants to win the snowman competition but his snowman melts!

Sherri

I think I'm getting annoyed with these books. And they are getting less funny. But my 6 year old still loves them/

Ursula Clancy

Francesca Simon is such a great writer- she never failed to make me laugh in each story! I love these books
