Ten favourite Horrid Henry stories have been enriched by new colour illustrations by Tony Ross. As ever, Horrid Henry subverts every possible occasion – with hilarious results for everyone except, of course, Perfect Pete.
Ten side-splitting stories revolving around Horrid Henry's school days: his attempts to get out of Nurse Needle's injections and sabotage Miss Impatience Tutu's dance class, his cunning ploy to be off school sick, his determination to meet the Queen, win at football and star in the Christmas play, and much more. In his dreams he is King Henry the Horrible, and everyone does just what he says -- but Horrid Henry knows that life's not like that. A spot-the-hidden-object picture, Henry's inventive sick notes, a letter from Buckingham Palace, pages from his diary, photos from the school year book and lots more extra material fills this funny book.
