Francesca Simon spent her childhood on the beach in California, and then went to Yale and Oxford Universities to study medieval history and literature. She now lives in London with her English husband and their son. When she is not writing books she is doing theatre and restaurant reviews or chasing after her Tibetan Spaniel, Shanti. Miranda Richardson has appeared in films such as THE HOURS, SLEEPY HOLLOW, THE CRYING GAME, EMPIRE OF THE SUN and HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE. TV work includes A DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF TIME, JACKANORY, Queen Elizabeth in BLACKADDER and Queen Mary in THE LOST PRINCE. She has won two Spoken Word awards for her inspired readings of HORRID HENRY AND THE SECRET CLUB and HORRID HENRY'S STINKBOMB audiobooks for Orion.Review:
'Four interlinked stories lead up to the nightmare before and during Christmas as the awful child ruins his school Nativity play and enjoys the worst Christmas lunch ever. The scratchy, punky music will put your teeth on edge and Richardson's voice is like broken glass in treacle as she relishes the ghastly details about spiders in wreaths, frozen turkey and revolting relations. It will have you laughing helplessly all the way to Boxing Day and beyond.' -- Amanda Craig, THE INDEPENDENT
'Top 10 audiobook' -- THE OBSERVER
'excellent voices for each of the characters so each one is easily identifiable.... music and sound effects add to the enjoyment.... This audio version would be suitable for listening to as a class or could be used for group reading, whilst the children followed along with the book - that is, if you don't mind the uncontrollable laughter -- writeaway.org.uk
'once heard, you'll never forget the delicious mayhem of HORRID HENRY'S CHRISTMAS CRACKER.... Perfect for 3-7s.' -- Kati Nicholl, DAILY EXPRESS
'performed with the usual verve and inspiration we expect in this series.' -- Sue Baker, PUBLISHING NEWS
