The Observer | Review | They love what Simon says

Highly Recommended feature about Francesca SImon, author of the Horrid Henry books... ...

In an age when almost every novelist is jealously eyeing the kind of sales and advances passing to children's writers in a post-Potter market and thinking wizards might be the answer, Simon is an almost accidental success story, and a triumph of what she calls 'old-fashioned publishing'. Among her 40-plus titles for children, it's the Horrid Henry series that has made her name, a series now 12 years old, which includes 15 titles selling more than five million copies around the world; she has just sold the television rights for a reported �1 million.
