<p><strong>Excerpt from Story 1: Horrid Henry"s Perfect Day</strong></p><p>Henry was horrid.<br>Everyone said so, even his mother.<br>Henry threw food, Henry grabbed, Henry pushed and shoved and pinched. Even his teddy bear, Mr. Kill, avoided him when possible.</p><p>His parents despaired.<br>"What are we going to do about that horrid boy?" sighed Mom.</p><p>"How did two people as nice as us have such a horrid child?" sighed Dad.</p><p>When Horrid Henry"s parents took Henry to school they walked behind him and pretended he was not theirs.</p><p>Children pointed at Henry and whispered to their parents, "That"s Horrid Henry."<br>"He"s the boy who threw my jacket in the mud."<br>"He"s the boy who squashed Billy"s beetle."<br>"He"s the boy who…" Fill in whatever terrible deed you like.

His name was Perfect Peter.<br>Perfect Peter always said "Please" and "Thank you."<br>Perfect Peter loved vegetables.<br>Perfect Peter always used a hankie and never, ever picked his nose.<br>"Why can"t you be perfect like Peter?" said Henry"s mom every day.</p><p>As usual, Henry pretended not to hear. He continued melting Peter"s crayons on the radiator.<br>But Horrid Henry started to think.<br>"What if I were perfect?" thought Henry. "I wonder what would happen."</p><p>When Henry woke the next morning, he did not wake Peter by pouring water on Peter"s head. <br>Peter did not scream.<br>This meant Henry"s parents overslept and Henry and Peter were late for Cub Scouts.<br>Henry was very happy.<br>Peter was very sad to be late for Cub Scouts.<br>But because he was perfect, Peter did not whine or complain.</p><p>On the way to Cub Scouts Henry did not squabble with Peter over who sat in front. He did not pinch Peter and he did not shove Peter.<br>Back home, when Perfect Peter built a castle, Henry did not knock it down. Instead, Henry sat on the sofa and read a book. Mom and Dad ran into the room.</p><p>"It"s awfully quiet in here," said Mom. "Are you being horrid, Henry?"<br>"No," said Henry.<br>"Peter, is Henry knocking your castle down?"<br>Peter longed to say "yes." But that would be a lie.<br>"No," said Peter.</p>
