Bad Jack Horner
Sat in a corner
Pulling the wings off a fly.
He swore at his mum
Kicked his dad in the bum,
And said 'Oh, what a bad boy am I'.

How to get an 8 year old to read!


Be warned it is rude and crude, just what every 8 year old wants! If you struggle to get your child to read then this is a winner!!



great for boys


I have given this to my 8yr old son whos not the best reader. He finds it very funny (as it relates to everything that boys find funny)and it keeps him reading which I love.

My 8 year-old thought this was fantastic


My 8 year-old loved this book and the Very Bad Book. Andy Griffiths just hits the mark for this age group. Thanks to these and other Andy Griffiths books we have a bookworm in the family. Light and easy for him to read; entertaining, a bit naughty, very funny.



The Bad Book is Good


Gets reluctant readers reading. Very popular with boys 8-12.
