Horrid Henry reads Perfect Peter's diary and improves it; goes shopping with Mom and tries to make her buy him some really nice new sneakers; is horrified when his old enemy Bossy Bill turns up at school; and tries, by any means, to win the class soccer match and defeat Moody Margaret.

Francesca Simon is one of the world's best-loved children's authors. She is the only American to have ever won the Galaxy Book Award, and her creation, Horrid Henry, is the #1 bestselling chapter book series in the UK-with a hit TV show and over fifteen million copies sold! Each book contains four easy-to-read stories and hilarious illustrations by the one and only Tony Ross, so even the most reluctant of readers won't be able to resist Henry's amazing talent for trouble!

Hilarious stories to entertain reluctant readers again! As a second grade teacher, I have delighted in the descriptive writing, alliterations galore, and teaching moments provided by Horrid Henry's antics. Additionally, it allows ample dialoguing dealing with feelings and emotions. I whole-heartedly recommend any of the Horrid Henry books!!
