Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Sports day and Horrid Henry are a deadly combination! Henry hates sports day because he always looses and Perfect Pete always wins! But this year, Henry is determined that things will be different! How Henry sabotages everything he can and ends up triumphant in the egg and spoon race is a classic.
