Horrid Henry's Mighty Joke Book
By Francesca Simon
Illustrated by Tony Ross
The third batch of Henry¿s hilarious jokes with constant interruptions from his school pals, teachers and parents...
Horrid Henry's friends are so keen to hamper Henry's humour, after the success of their contributions to his JOLLY JOKE BOOK, that they're willing to pay Henry to include their jokes in his next book. But they don't realise that Henry has saved his best gags for this book, so their hard-earned money will be misspent when their anecdotes are overshadowed.
Themed sections include Fluffy's Jokes and Greasy Greta's Greasy Jokes, as well as typically hilarious jokes from Henry in this brand new collection.
