Synopsis

Horrid Henry's Stinkbomb Book 10 by Francesca Simon

A stinkbomb becomes a deadly weapon in Horrid Henry's long-running war with Moody Margaret; he uses all his guile to win the school reading competition, only to find the longed-for prize is not what he expected; he goes for a sleepover and retreats in horror when he finds that other people's houses aren't always as nice as his own; and he has the joy of seeing Miss Battle-Axe ticked off by the Head when he knows it was all his fault. In short, another vintage HORRID HENRY title!

Reviews

The four short stories about Henry and his friends and enemies are full of comedy - often at Henry's expense. Reading was hard heavy work, complains Henry at one point. But this isn't true of these books. His conniving wheeling and dealing never quite pays off, to the reader's great delight.

Inventive and funny, with appeal for boys and girls alike, and super illustrations by Tony Ross

Children...enjoy the smelliness, naughtiness and sheer anarchy of these stories...Tony Ross's lively illustrations enhance the quirkiness of the book.

Henry...is up to his usual dastardly tricks...intent as always on spoiling everyone's fun, as he plots devious plans to upset all and sundry.

'a funny little book' [One of Sally Gunnell's 'My Six Best Books'] -- Sally Gunnell DAILY EXPRESS
