The Lovereading4Kids comment

5-7 years. Horrid Henry is the ultimate irresistible bad boy! His mean ways are completely alluring as he sums up the desperate wanting in all readers. So much so that no one will waste much sympathy on his goody-goody brother Perfect Pete! Three suitably titled stories, Horrid Henry’s Stinkbomb, Horrid Henry’s Underpants and Horrid Henry Meets the Queen are bound together in this satisfyingly fat volume. (7+)


A Giant Slice of Horrid Henry by Francesca Simon

Horrid Henry's evil plans so often go awry. The three books in this collection include twelve of the stories about this nightmare child, among them the one in which he's given some pink underpants, the one in which he devises a plan to get out of doing chores, and the one in which he shows Peter how to bow to the Queen with disastrous results.
