The Lovereading4Kids comment

Horrid Henry finds he is not as fearless as he thought in the title story in this collection. And, to make matters worse, Perfect Pete is much less easily frightened. Four shocking new tales about the unchanging Horrid Henry.


Horrid Henry's Nightmare by Francesca Simon

Four hilarious new Horrid Henry stories - HORRID HENRY'S MOTHER'S DAY, probably not the day his mum looks forward to most in the year, HORRID HENRY'S NIGHTMARE where Henry's chased by a ghost bunny with huge teeth, a wailing graveyard ghost and, for good measure, a slimy zombie, then a new story about one of his greatest enemies in THE RETURN OF THE DEMON DINNER LADY and last but not least FLUFFY STRUTS HER STUFF.

Horrid Henry is illustrated by Tony Ross, who also illustrates David Walliams' children's books, as well as his own picture books.
