The Lovereading4Kids comment

How Horrid Henry rampages through Christmas may strike a painful chord with many adults! Horrid Henry has strong views about Christmas with which most young readers will entirely agree… “Christmas! Presents! Presents! Presents! Chocolate! Presents!” reads his list of what should happen on the big day. The cunning things Henry does to survive Christmas – including some sneaky tricks to get the right presents and some useful tips such as “How to avoid spending money on other people’s presents” – are crammed into this stocking filler.


How to Survive ... Christmas Chaos with Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon

Packed with festive fun and puzzles, Christmas jokes, plus top tips from Horrid Henry about how to get all the best presents, how to get all the chocolates off the tree without your parents noticing, and MUCH MORE!
