Horrid Henry's Big Bad Book
Ten Favourite Stories - and more!
By Francesca Simon
Illustrated by Tony Ross
A collection of ten of Horrid Henry's school escapades with colour illustrations by Tony Ross.
Ten favourite Horrid Henry stories, all about school. He gives the class nits, encounters a demon dinner lady, does his best to sabotage the school sports day, finds ingenious ways to get round doing his homework and reading books, and is publicly mortified by a pair of pink underpants. Francesca Simon has supplied extra material - complete lists of Horrid Henry's favourite and most hated teachers and classmates, accounts of his best and worst lessons, pages from his exercise book, school reports, a poem by himself, and more.
Tony Ross has specially coloured some of the pictures and added some new ones, to make this a gorgeous new collection that all Horrid Henry fans will adore, even if they've read the stories already.
