The Lovereading4Kids 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.


Horrid Henry's Sports Day (Early Reader) by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry comes up with a genius idea to win the cross-country run at sports day.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
