The Lovereading4Kids comment

Introducing Horrid Henry, the boy who throws food, snatches, pushes and, above all, HATES his younger brother Perfect Pete. In a special twentieth anniversary edition, the very first four stories about Henry and his sweet-natured little brother Perfect Pete introduce what has become one of the most famous and successful sibling duos. Henry’s behaviour at home, at his dancing class, with his friend Moody Margaret and on holiday is always outrageous as he follows his own logic about why he should do all the very bad things that he does. Tony Ross’s illustrations bring the richly varied cast of characters vividly to life.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
