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. Fun to browse through and full of useful cross-references which will encourage and reward further delving.
