By Francesca Simon
Illustrated by Tony Ross
Read by Miranda Richardson

A wicked book of stories with special appeal for football fans including brand new material; Horrid Henry's top tips on winning the beautiful game.

Horrid Henry reads Perfect Peter's diary and improves it; goes clothes shopping with Mum and tries to make her buy him some Rootatoot trainers; is horrified when his old enemy Bossy Bill turns up at school; and tries by any means, fair or foul, to win the class football match and defeat Moody Margaret.
