Horrid Henry's Author Visit

Book 15

By Francesca Simon
Illustrated by Tony Ross

  • Paperback
  • £4.99

It's Book Week at school and Horrid Henry can't wait to meet his favourite author, TJ Fizz.

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.

It is Book Week at Horrid Henry's school, and TJ Fizz, Henry's favourite author in the whole world, is coming in to talk to his class. So he can't believe his rotten luck when he is sent to listen to the Happy Nappy song with the Infants instead. He has to escape - but how?
