Product description

A hilarious first reader. It’s a horrid shock for Horrid Henry when Perfect Peter is born. Despite his very worst efforts, he just can’t get rid of him! As Peter gets bigger, Henry gets crosser and crosser. But the day comes when Henry accidentally saves Peter from a fierce dog – and discovers that it’s rather nice to be a hero. Setting the scene for the hugely popular Horrid Henry series, this is a simple and comical story with a universally recognizable theme. Now in a brand new reader format for youngsters to tackle alone, it will leave everyone shaking with laughter!

    It was funny when Horrid Henry said “let’s draw on the wall!”

    He told off Peter.

    I thought this book was great.
