Horrid Henry riding high in kids' poll

HORRiD HENRY has stormed in at number two in a recent survey of children’s favourite characters, making him the most popular (and most horrid) character in the 5+ age range.

Children aged between 5 and 12 were polled by Booktrust to pick their favourite literary characters.

The research also found that ‘character’ was the most popular reason for children to choose a particular book.

When asked for his view on the poll, HORRiD HENRY commented,


’Nah nah ne nah nah!’
