Horrid Henry's World Records by Francesca Simon


Horrid Henry's World Records by Francesca Simon

Welcome to World Records - Horrid Henry style! Horrid Henry's gizmo collection is a massive 643...but that's nothing compared to the Magnet Lady, who owns over 30,000 fridge magnets. The most words spelled backwards in a minute is 14...how many can Henry spell forwards? A British man holds the world record for eating six giant pizzas in under a minute...could Greedy Graham beat that? Weird, wonderful, hilarious and horrid, this new non-fiction book is jam-packed full of world records - and a few of Henry's own too! Essential for Horrid Henry fans everywhere.
