"Henry's sharp wit and disregard for authority make him the ideal short-story hero - especially when the subject is school. Plenty of dialogue, large text and fun illustrations make this an energetic read. What's more, it's split neatly into 10 short stories to encourage new readers". (Junior Magazine, 1 Feb 05
A new collection of favourite stories, with pictures in colour
From the Inside Flap
Ever wondered what Horrid Henry gets up to at school? Then this is the book for you. It contains ten favourite stories, a school fact file, and lots more. Horrid Henry gives his classmates nits, scares off the teachers he doesn't like, battles with the demon dinner lady, wears pink underpants -- it's all here, with wonderful new colour pictures. And alongside the stories you can see his doodles and his maths and spelling tests, read the notes he passes round and see pictures of everyone in his class. A real treat for Horrid Henry fans, and a great way for new readers to meet this awesomely wicked boy.
