The latest Horrid Henry books lives up to the good standard of the rest of the series.
As soon as the book arrived my son had his head straight into the book and was enjoying the four stories.
The first story focuses on Horrid Henry and Perfect Peter's fight over the TV remote control - something that many children who have a sibling will relate to!
The second story is about Henry versus Margaret to become school president while the third returns to Henry and Peter and their fight over a present.
Finally, to complete the book is a story about Henry trying to win a talent contest.
For fans of Horrid Henry this would make a super present.

This book was really good and used for Son's Homework reading, perfect size chapters for son and myself to read. Most of all my son is 7 years old and he chuckled whilst reading and wants to read more Horrid Henry books! Boys or Girls will love it!

Horrid Henry's (mis)adventures are a firm favourite with my nine year old son and this collection of four fun tales is not short of mishaps, sibling rivalry and general mischief.

The only slight disappointment is that the first story in this edition 'Horrid Henry and the TV remote' has previously been published within other editions under the title 'Horrid Henry and the Comfy Black Chair.' This was a shame as we believed that this contained four completely new stories. The only consolation is that the stories are so funny and so very well written that actually neither of us minded reading it again! I do wish that the titles of stories weren't changed in this way, however, as it does make it difficult for parents to keep track of which have already been read and purchased.

Needless to say the following three stories 'Horrid Henry's School Election', 'Horrid Henry's Bad Present' and 'Horrid Henry Wakes the Dead' were as funny as ever and confirmed that there are plenty more new stories and ways for Henry to plot to take over the world - with things always managing to go astray at the end. For any parents worried about their own offspring picking up Henry's bad ways, there is a subtle moral message at the end of each story and, more often than not, Henry's mischief does backfire!

Horrid Henry was in a play at school called 'Wakes the Dead'. The winner of the prize would appear on a tv programme called 'Talent Tigers;' .The main character is Horrid Henry. My favourite character is Perfect Peter because he's friendly and i like friendly people. My favourite part of the book is when Henry goes on stage and pretends to wake the dead but of course its only peter in a skeleton mask in a pretend coffin. I like the part when he wakes the dead because it is exciting what is going to happen in the book. I give this book out of 5 5/5 because it is great to read the book.

This book was absolutely amazing! The cover was such a beautiful shade of red and the shading on Henry's face was extremely good. The cover is very intriguing and the story is amazing. The vocabulary is a very high standard and it makes a very enjoyable read. The plot is a gripper and it makes you want to keep reading until you've finished! I loved it!
