Great story coupled with Tony Ross' trademark illustrations in full colour on every page make this the perfect book to get both boys and girls enjoying the reading experience both on their own and with a member of the family. Horrid Henry is as ever up to his usual tricks and creating havoc wherever he goes as well as coming up with the most absurd idea; this time it's to make himself rich!
There are lots of Early Reader titles to choose from that are great for sharing with your youngsters and for kids just starting out on the reading journey to read alone. Check out the extracts on the site as some of the titles are slightly more advanced than others - for example the Francesca Simon animal story titles set at Potters Barn are great to get started on whereas the Sally Gardner, Georgie Adams and Vivian French titles have a bit more text to each page. Each and every one of them though has full colour illustrations on every page.
Horrid Henry hates writing thank you letters. Why should he waste his precious time thanking people for terrible presents? In fact, why should anyone? Then he has a wonderful, spectacular idea ...one that's guaranteed to make him rich, rich rich!
