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.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
