Francesca Simon presents the final Horrid Henry book
Appearing at the festival to promote her latest work and discuss how she developed the bestselling Horrid Henry Series, she said she will now be moving into focus on new characters for the publishers Faber and Faber. After completing the 25th Horrid Henry book, she said it was a good number at which to stop.
When asked her advice for budding young Barnes writers, she responded: ‘Always keep an ideas book and finish the stories you start. Don’t forget you can always write your ending first.’
