Horrid Henry is looking forward to the school play. He’s sure he will star in it. But, when he discovers that Miss Battle-Axe has only given him a part with one line to say, he has to take desperate measures. How Horrid Henry takes matters into his own hands in order to get what he wants out of the school play will entertain all early readers.
