Horrid Henry Comes to the US !!

7:52 PM

In case you haven't heard about Horrid Henry yet, he's the newest "thing" in the UK. He's even outsold Harry Potter several times during his run in the UK. Horrid Henry is written by Francesca Simon.

Description (from Publisher Website)
Horrid Henry lives in a normal house, in a normal town with his parents (Mom and Dad) and his little brother Perfect Peter. Peter is perfect. He eats his veggies, cleans his plate, loves reading, hates TV, loves tattle-telling on his brother, and pretty much anything else that a perfect child would do. Horrid Henry, on the other hand, loves any and every opportunity to create mischief for anyone who might cross his path. This series chronicles the adventures of Horrid Henry, his little brother Perfect Peter, his neighbor Moody Margaret, his school pals Rude Ralph, Lazy Linda, Aerobic Al, Brainy Brian, their teacher Miss Battle-Axe and a host of other comic foils for this young terror.

I've had the privilege of reading the first four Horrid Henry books and they are great! I'll be posting the reviews for them shortly, but Sourcebooks has offered to let me give away FIVE copies of a Horrid Henry Dance Class Chapbook (22 pages, full graphics),

These are the new MUST HAVE kids books...there are four available now, with two more coming out over the summer and then 2 more in the fall.

I want to have some fun with this one...here's how the entries are going to go ;)

1 pt - Do the boring thing and just comment
2 pt - Get creative and tell me what your Horrid Henry name is (e.g. mine is Mopey Marta when I don't get my way)
2 pt - Go on twitter and twitter this "I'm (HH name ) and I love Horrid Henry!! Win a copy at (link to this post) " - copy the link to your post in a comment
4 pt - In a separate post tell me the worst most horrible prank you or your kids have pulled. One sentence comments will be deleted. Give me a story ;)
1 pt - Blog about this contest on your blog.It can be a sidebar listing.
Ok..if my math holds up that's 10 POINTS you can go for here. Leave each in a separate comment...and put your email in each comment so I can contact you.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
