The Lovereading4Kids comment

Everybody’s favourite bad boy, Henry is back with vengeance in this bumper volume of three of the funniest and best-loved books. Here Henry tangles with the Abominable Snowman, gets involved with bank robbery and sets about waking the dead…As ever, Tony Ross’s illustrations perfectly capture Henry’s scheming ways.
