Revolting-but-captivating stories, large sized text, illustrations included on almost every page … Horrid Henry is exactly what reluctant readers have been waiting for. You can check out my recent review of the first book in the Horrid Henry series here.

    I’m Patient Paula. I have 4 kids and run a weekly Bible club for kids along with my husband. You have to have patients and lots of it to be around kids all the time. I will admit to losing it occasionally but I usually have a good reason 🙂

    The book looks cute.

  5. Patience is certainly a virtue!! Good luck!

  6. I’m Ambitious Amy. I always have big plans… too many big plans! I think I probably need to be a little more realistic about how many hours are in a day. Ha!
