Illustrated by Tony Ross

Part of the Horrid Henry Early Reader Series

Key Stage 1 Humorous

LoveReading View on Horrid Henry's Car Journey (Early Reader)

Utterly wicked and totally brilliant.  Henry will do anything to stop this car journey - he wants to be at Ralph's birthday party instead! More hilarious Henry escapades - especially for younger readers.

There are lots of Early Reader titles to choose from that are great for sharing with your youngsters and for kids just starting out on the reading journey to read alone.  Check out the extracts on the site as some of the titles are slightly more advanced than others - for example the Francesca Simon animal story titles set at Potters Barn are great to get started on whereas the Sally Gardner, Georgie Adams and Vivian French titles have a bit more text to each page.  Each and every one of them though has full colour illustrations on every page.
