Shortly for release (July 2011) is a movie based on the best selling books about Horrid Henry, by Francesca Simon and Tony Ross. This will be the first British kids movie to be shot in 3D (I’m not a huge fan of 3D but I will wait and see before making a judgement).
Horrid Henry: The Movie stars Anjelica Huston, Richard E Grant, Rebecca Front, Parminder Nagra, Jo Brand, Prunella Scales and Matthew Horne. It introduces new comers Scarlett Stitt as Moody Margaret, Ross Marron as Perfect Peter and Theo Stevenson as Horrid Henry. The script was written by Lucinda Whiteley and directed by Nick Moore.
By: Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross
It turns out that there are all sorts of things to learn about Earth families, or at least there is if you are a student of Dr Xargle. The great, green alien teacher has a lot of things to tell you. For instance some earthlings are smelly and dangerous, some are sneaky and shriek, others are made of crumply material and put hedgehogs in their fur.
This is a very funny picture book full of familiar images that are presented from a very different perspective. The silly, simple and colourful illustrations add to the comedy and help make this a real fun read.
