The Lovereading4Kids comment

Great gags from everyone’s favourite bad boy. Horrid Henry invited his gang – loyal readers – to send in their best jokes. The result is a suitably hilarious collection perfect for all Henry’s fans and definitely NOT for their parents.


Horrid Henry's Purple Hand Gang Joke Book by Francesca Simon

Laugh your head off with Horrid Henry, Rude Ralph and the rest of the Purple Hand Gang as they present a selection of the best, most hilarious, ridiculously rib-tickling jokes sent in by Horrid Henry fans everywhere. With jokes sent in by Horrid Henry fans everywhere, this is the Purple Hand Gang's most totally brilliant, fiendishly funny, utterly wicked joke book yet.
