Julia Eccleshare's comment:
June 2012 Book of the Month. Horrid Henry loves scary movies! The problem is Perfect Pete hates them. And so do mum and dad. How will Henry ever get to see The Vampire Zombie Werewolf ? As ever, in this story and in the other three in this rip roaring collection, Horrid Henry does everything he can to get what he wants but things don’t turn out just as he had expected….

SynopsisHorrid Henry's Monster Movie by Francesca Simon
The twenty-first storybook in this multi-million-copy-selling series, containing four brand new Horrid Henry stories - in which Horrid Henry makes his own scary movie, "The Undead Demon Monster Who Would Not Die"; persuades Peter to hand over his stash of Grump Cards (as a brilliant scheme to get him out of the punishments his parents give him); and spends a weekend at Aunt Ruby's where he has to share a bedroom with his two arch-enemies, Stuck-Up Steve and Bossy Bill. Then when Henry's school decides to have a mini-Olympics, he sets up his own Holympics, with medals for crisp-eating, TV watching, and Burping to the Beat.
ReviewsEverybody loves a bad boy don't they? And they don't make 'em more bad or more lovable than Francesca Simon's young impertinent protagonist, Henry. The horrid one's latest is a suitably anarchic affair, with four brand new tales sure to delight young fans.
