Product Description

Hallowe’en! Oh happy, happy day! Every year Henry could not believe it: an entire day devoted to stuffing your face with sweets and playing horrid tricks … Whoopee! Horrid Henry was armed and ready.

Henry has great fun playing some hideous Halloween pranks and causing havoc on a killer car trip! But things are not quite so merry when he comes face to face with a brutal babysitter. Could it be that our tiny terror is going to be tamed at last?

Francesca Simon is the author of the hugely successful Horrid Henry series, which has sold over 15 million copies. Henry is a terrible (but loveable) tearaway who leaves grown-ups in tears, and playmates cowering! Short chapters and line drawings from Tony Ross make these great choices for newly confident readers.

More about Francesca: “I was born in St Louis, Missouri, grew up in Los Angeles and attended both Yale and Oxford Universities, where I specialised in Medieval Studies. I then threw away a lucrative career as a medievalist and worked as a freelance journalist, writing for the Sunday Times, Guardian, Mail on Sunday, Telegraph, and Vogue.

After my son Joshua was born in 1989, I started writing children’s books full time.

I have published over 50 books, including the immensely popular Horrid Henry series, published in 17 countries and now a successful CITV animation series.

I live in London with my husband, son, and Tibetan Spaniel called Shanti.”

Tony Ross

Multi-award-winning Tony Ross has become one of the best-known creators of original and traditional picture books and his work has been published all over the world. As well as his own books, he has illustrated books for authors such as Roald Dahl, Paula Danziger and Michael Palin.

    A classic story with horrid bits left in. Horrid Henry comes face to face with his baby sitter and outwits Moody Margaret. His horrid plans are ridiculously funny and predictable.A good read.
