Don't Be Horrid, Henry! (Book and CD) by Francesca Simon

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Horrid Henry reaches a younger generation of readers in this new picture storybook. It’s an amusing tale about brotherly love and sibling rivalry and comes complete with a fantastic CD full of extra Horrid Henry entertainments. Horrid Henry is the child that every teacher dreads and which every other child loves. He can bring mayhem to every situation and leaves adults with a feeling of dismay. Children, get ready to chuckle out loud at this hilarious tale of Horrid Henry and his brand new brother Perfect Peter whom Henry just can’t seem to get one over on.


Don't Be Horrid, Henry! (Book and CD) by Francesca Simon

It's a dreadful shock for Horrid Henry when Perfect Peter is born, and despite his best - or worst - efforts, he can't manage to get rid of him. As Peter gets bigger, Henry gets crosser. But the day comes when Henry inadvertently finds himself saving Peter from a big fierce dog, and discovers that it's rather nice to be a hero.
