Stories about naughty characters have been told for centuries, and Horrid Henry is a modern-day rogue in the tradition of Dennis the Menace, Pippi Longstocking, Just William and My Naughty Little Sister.
The first in the hugely popular Horrid Henry series introduces us to Henry and his brother, Perfect Peter. The four stories it comprises are long enough to satisfy early readers, yet are short enough to be manageable, with plenty of laughs along the way. Tony Ross's michevious illustrations are the perfect accompaniment - and children will have great fun comparing their own behaviour to Henry's, hopefully coming out on top!
