The Lovereading4Kids comment
Four Christmas stories about the mayhem everyone’s favourite bad boy causes at Christmas. In the count down to Christmas, Horrid Henry deals with the Christmas play, with presents, sets out to ambush Father Christmas and deals with Christmas lunch itself.
Christmas will never seem quite the same after reading of his hilarious exploits.
Horrid Henry's Christmas Cracker by Francesca Simon
Four fabulously funny stories that will invoke every family's worst Christmas nightmares, as Horrid Henry sabotages the school play, tries to do his Christmas shopping without spending his pocket money, attempts to ambush Father Christmas, and endures Christmas dinner with the guests from hell.
'Horrid Henry is as rude and awful as ever and his Christmas is full of hilarious disasters. Francesca Simon fans will love this book.'
'Horrid Henry is at it again! Four stories to make you ache with laughter... Rollicking fun.'
'perfect both for over-excited children and stressed-out parents, who will recognise most of th seasonal disasters caused or endured by the revoltingly selfish child.'
'the kids will love it'
'once heard, you'll never forget the delicious mayhem of Horrid Henry's Christmas Cracker.'
'he is naughtier than ever. When the school stages a nativity play he is the innkeeper, but he tells Mary and Joseph that there is room after all and ruins the play! My favourite bit is when he writes his mummy a rude poem instead of giving her a proper present.'
'hilarious and subversive'
'four fabulously funny tales... an ideal stocking filler for fans of all ages.'
'a new sparkling collection.'
'Four stories in which Horrid Henry sabotages the school play, tries to do his Christmas shopping without spending his pocket money, attempts to ambush Father Christmas and endures Christmas dinner with the guests from hell.'
'More Python-esque rollicking yarns abou the rumbustious Henry (who is, of course, just misudnerstood rather than horrid) and his annoyingly sweet sibling. Let's just say, you will be rooting for Henry.'
