The Lovereading comment:
10 of Horrid Henry’s most dreadful deeds all in one wonderful volume, and perfect for every boy and girl aged 5+. Whether it’s sabotaging his parents’ dinner party, plotting revenge on everyone by writing his will or just generally being pretty horrid to Perfect Peter! In a lovely gift hardback edition, it couldn’t be a better present and Tony Ross’ wonderful illustrations of Horrid Henry doing his best to be horrid are to be found throughout the book.
SynopsisHorrid Henry's Dreadful Deeds by Francesca Simon
Made to be a page boy at a wedding, forced to go on a country walk, and dragooned into dinner at a posh restaurant - it's a hard life for Henry. But in these ten hilarious stories taken from the Horrid Henry books, he shows he knows how to stick up for himself and get his own back. Brilliant new extras include instructions, notes from Horrid Henry, a recipe for a truly horrible drink, and advice on various important matters. You can even choose a new hairstyle for his unfavourite dinner guest!
