Horrid Henry Wakes The Dead
By Francesca Simon
Illustrated by Tony Ross
Four brand new stories about our favourite mischievous boy.
Horrid Henry finds a surefire way of wielding the remote control to ensure he always watches his programme of choice, vies with Moody Margaret to become the head of the school, shows off his prowess as a magician in the school talent show, and battles it out with Perfect Peter over who gets the green dinosaur and who gets the purple one.
