The Lovereading4Kids comment

Eleven of the top Horrid Henry stories gathered together in this bumper edition with an invaluable Horrid Henry fact file to boot. The perfect anti-hero, Horrid Henry would be bad enough on his own but everything he does looks worse than it might when contrasted with the behaviour of his brother Perfect Pete. As ever, Tony Ross’s illustrations capture Horrid Henry perfectly.

Following the spectacular success of Horrid Henry's Big Bad Book, here is a new hardback collection of favourite stories, with colour pictures and brand new material to tell you more about Horrid Henry.

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!
