Number One for Fiendish Fun!
This book contains a bedroom invasion, a fake diary, a SNEAKY biscuit thief and a rock concert!
Four utterly hilarious and totally brilliant Horrid Henry stories by Francesca Simon, with illustrations by Tony Ross. An irresistible introduction to reading for pleasure.

a laugh-aloud romp
I always think that Francesca Simon must have such fun writing them. The stories are also scattered with little pen and ink drawings by Tony Ross that capture the chaos of Henry's life and help the action along. I think that the book works well as either read-aloud stories to share, or for children growing in confidence to read by themselves. The short story format is perfect for either approach, so children can take the book in bite-size chunks or parents can limit bedtime reading marathons
It's wickedly funny!
Kitty, Age 6 FIRST NEWS
Henry returns to follow his dreams of endless biscuits, no school and loud music. Can he outwit Perfect Peter? Will he best Moody Margaret? Can he secure a ticket to see the Killer Boy Rats? Great fun and a hit with Gabriella, my six-year-old rocker!
