For all Horrid Henry fans here's the perfect book to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Bestselling Horrid Henry celebrates the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in his own special way… When Perfect Pete is asked to greet the Queen and present her with a bunch of flowers on the day she visits their school, Horrid Henry is furious. Why can’t he meet the Queen? He has an important question to ask her! Can Henry find a way of meeting the queen? As ever, with just a little bit of exceptionally bad behaviour, Henry nearly gets exactly what he wants.


Horrid Henry Meets the Queen (Early Reader) by Francesca Simon

The Queen is coming to visit Horrid Henry's school. The real live Queen! Henry can't believe it. But when Miss Battle-Axe puts him in the back row, Henry is furious. Now how is he meant to find out how many TVs she has? Somehow Henry has to get himself noticed - and show the Queen just how horrid he can be...


'Works well as either read-aloud stories to share, or for children growing in confidence to read by themselves. The format is perfect for either approach, so children can take the book in bite-size chunks or parents can limit bedtime reading marathons' - The Bookbag.co.uk
