Horrid Henry's Monster Movie by Francesca Simon

The twenty-first storybook in this multi-million-copy-selling series, containing four brand new Horrid Henry stories - in which Horrid Henry makes his own scary movie, "The Undead Demon Monster Who Would Not Die"; persuades Peter to hand over his stash of Grump Cards (as a brilliant scheme to get him out of the punishments his parents give him); and spends a weekend at Aunt Ruby's where he has to share a bedroom with his two arch-enemies, Stuck-Up Steve and Bossy Bill. Then when Henry's school decides to have a mini-Olympics, he sets up his own Holympics, with medals for crisp-eating, TV watching, and Burping to the Beat.
