Julia Eccleshare's comment:
For the cover alone, this is a must-have! Bad boy Horrid Henry is back as the star in four new exciting stories in which, as ever, he torments his brother Perfect Pete and drives his misguided parents to the brink…How Horrid Henry, with a scowl on his face and a torch in his hand, faces up to the Zombie Vampire is vividly captured in the strikingly embossed cover.

SynopsisHorrid Henry and the Zombie Vampire by Francesca Simon
Four new stories in which Horrid Henry terrorizes his classmates at a school sleepover in the museum; plays with Perfect Peter and tricks him into handing over all his money; gets out of writing his own story for Miss Battle-Axe by adapting one of Peter's; and meets the Nudie Foodie, a celebrity chef, who comes to the school to improve school dinners. No more burgers! No more chips!
