The Lovereading4Kids comment

In each of the ten hilarious stories in this collection, Horrid Henry is up to no good. He frightens the daylights out of the new teacher, causes chaos on a school trip and he nearly drowns everyone in the swimming pool. And, whatever else he’s doing, Henry always makes sure he can be as horrid as possible to his little brother, Perfect Pete. Each story unleashes the full force of Henry’s determination to get what he wants – whatever it takes!

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.

Synopsis

Horrid Henry's Big Bad Book by Francesca Simon

Ten favourite Horrid Henry stories, all about school. He gives the class nits, encounters a demon dinner lady, does his best to sabotage the school sports day, finds ingenious ways to get round doing his homework and reading books, and is publicly mortified by a pair of pink underpants. Francesca Simon has supplied extra material - complete lists of Horrid Henry's favourite and most hated teachers and classmates, accounts of his best and worst lessons, pages from his exercise book, school reports, a poem by himself, and more.

Tony Ross has specially coloured some of the pictures and added some new ones, to make this a gorgeous new collection that all Horrid Henry fans will adore, even if they've read the stories already.

Reviews

'funny and readable... everyone is refreshingly horrible, making these a great antidote to fairy fever.'

* LOOK AT A BOOK (THE GUARDIAN) * 'Brilliant short stories for little boys...' * MUMS BEST MAGAZINE *
