The Lovereading4Kids comment

5 +. Everybody’s favourite bad boy is back for a new set of shocking adventures. Horrid Henry and his brother Perfect Peter will squabble over anything and everything – and, as his fans will know, his behaviour is getting worse! At home Henry and Peter squabble over the best seat for watching TV, the use of the Remote and much more. At school, Henry sets out to win the talent contest with a stunning performance of waking the dead. Whatever Henry does he is perfectly dreadful and wickedly funny.

Lovereading comment:

A brilliant but utterly wicked new story that will have huge appeal to tear away children of 5+. His plots will make you ache with laughter, but will Horrid Henry or Perfect Peter get the last laugh and how many times do you think his mother will say ‘Don’t be horrid Henry’ during the book?

Synopsis

Horrid Henry Wakes the Dead by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry finds a surefire way of wielding the remote control to ensure he always watches his programme of choice, vies with Moody Margaret to become the head of the school, shows off his prowess as a magician in the school talent show, and battles it out with Perfect Peter over who gets the green dinosaur and who gets the purple one.

Reviews

Miranda Richardson remains admirably deadpan as she charts Henry's progress in persecuting Perfect Pete ... The lowest depth of sibling rivalry has never been so well observed. BOOKS FOR KEEPS
