Horrid Henry's Christmas Play by Francesca Simon

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. Horrid Henry is desperate to be Joseph in the school Christmas Nativity play. The trouble is, Miss Battle-Axe has made him the inn-keeper. There's only one thing for it - Henry's got to make his own part BIGGER! Full colour illustrations from the fabulous Tony Ross on every page!


This timely tale with lively illustrations by Tony Ross should strike a chord with budding actors and parents of would-be drama divas alike! JUNIOR As ever, Horrid Henry is brilliant fun to read and a laugh a minute. Great to read all year round, not just for Christmas! Highly recommended BOOKAPOET
