The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
Horrid Henry fans will delight in their favourite bad boy’s book of disgusting facts. The way Horrid Henry looks at things, much about the body is pretty disgusting so, from ear wax through snoring to the highest jumping animal in the world, Horrid Henry gives his original take on the unusual and weird things about bodies.
And for some extra Horrid Henry fun, you can download three nit-infested activity sheets free from Readers Guide on the right hand side of this page.
A Horrid Factbook: Horrid Henry's Bodies by Francesca Simon
Did you know that if your intestines were removed they would stretch round a tennis court several times over? Or that humans are as hairy as gorillas? Or that you move more than 90 muscles in your leg every time you take step? Or that you'll spend three years of your life on the toilet and one third of your life asleep? Packed with freaky facts and random trivia, this is the perfect guide to everything you ever wanted to know (and lots of things you might never have wanted to know) about Bodies - Horrid Henry style!
"Henry's packed-with-facts non-fiction range launches with a hilarious, and naturally, horrid guide to bodies." - Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
