4 stories in one book
on 14 June 2008
The stories are told at a good pace for children, with plenty of dialogue.
In 'Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman' Henry's plans to win a best snowman competition go awry and he gets a bit of a come uppance!
The second story 'Horrid Henry's Rainy Day' has Henry writing a will, an unusual heme for a children's story but it works. Henry's thoughts on how he would come back to haunt people if he died of boredom is particulary funny.
When Moody Margeret sets up her own makeover business in the third story, it doesn't take Horrid Henry long to set up a rival one next door. But Henry's makeovers are rather different to Margaret's.
Horrid Henry's Author Visit is the final story in the collection. Henry is so excited that his favourite author is going to visit his class but he just can't help himself eating crisps and getting sent to Perfect Peter's classroom as a punishment. Not only does he think he's going to miss out on the fun in his own classroom but he has to listen to another author, the awful Milksop Miles telling his 'Happy Nappy' story.
Another really good selection of stories.
