On-screen resource 2 explores the much-loved character of Horrid Henry, hero of Francesca Simon’s popular storybook series, illustrated by Tony Ross. Horrid Henry is an unusual kind of hero: he is endearing, yet naughty … and always up to something!

The Horrid Henry stories can support work on familiar stories in Year 3, and provide excellent models for the children’s own writing, with their straightforward plot lines and familiar subjects.
