Best-selling Horrid Henry has never been one to conform so it is not a surprise that his A-Z is full of typically entertaining and unusual entries. Starting with Abominable Snowman and ending with Zombie Vampires it acts as a guide book to the world of Horrid Henry picking out some of the things that have delighted, amused and infuriated Horrid Henry’s many eager readers.
