Horrid Henry uses a stinkbomb as a toxic weapon in his war with Moody Margaret; uses all his tricks to win the school reading competition; goes on a sleepover; and has the joy of seeing his teacher in hot water with the principal. PRAISE FOR HORRID HENRY Why Horrid Henry? Kids love it! "I love the Horrid Henry books by Francesca Simon. They have lots of funny bits in. And Henry always gets into trouble!" Mia, age 6, BBC Learning is Fun "It's easy to see why Horrid Henry is the bestselling character for 5-8 year olds." Liverpool Echo Because it's funny "My two boys love this book and I have actually had tears running down my face and had to stop reading because of laughing so hard. My oldest son is rereading all the books in this series on his own now and he still loves them. Happy reading!" T. Franklin, Parent "A modern comic classic." SF Said, Guardian Children's Books Supplement Kids get to be harmlessly rebellious "Henry is a beguiling hero who has entranced millions of reluctant readers... little rebels will love this collection and even little angels will be secretly thrilled by Henry's anti-heroic behaviour." Herald Henry's naughtiness is a yardstick against which children can get a sense of their own moral goodness and social justice "What is brilliant about the books is that Henry never does anything that is subversive. She creates an aura of supreme naughtiness (of which children are in awe) but points out that he operates within a safe and secure world." Emily Turner, Angels And Urchins Magazine Reaches the most important age group - children who are learning to read "I have tried out the Horrid Henry books with groups of children as a parent, as a babysitter, and as a teacher. Children love to either hear them read aloud or to read them themselves. The books are spot on for the 5-8 age range and are fun for the adults who share them too." Danielle Hall, Teacher The structure provides new readers with a real sense of accomplishment "My son is 7 years old and a big Horrid Henry fan. This book lived up to his expectations! Horrid Henry is like most boys: he always has a plan and is always getting into mischief! It was amusing, and he could not put it down. Can't wait for the next. He read it cover to cover by himself in 2 days! That for me sells a book! He can't wait for the next one to be published. He has recommended it to all his friends." Mrs. Tami Gold, Parent Reaches both boys and girls equally "Wonderfully appealing to girls and boys alike, a precious rarity at this age." Judith Woods, Times Books A global publishing phenomenon with 12 million copies sold! WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT HORRID HENRY: "Parents reading them aloud may be consoled to discover that Henry can always be relied upon to behave worse than any of their own offspring.&

<p><strong>Excerpted from Horrid Henry's Stinkbomb</strong></p><p><strong>Story 1: Horrid Henry Reads a Book</strong></p><p>Blah blah blah blah blah.</p><p>Miss Battle-Axe droned on and on and on. Horrid Henry drew pictures of crocodiles munching on a juicy Battle-Axe snack in his math book.</p><p>Snap! Off went her head.<br>Yank! Bye-bye leg.<br>Crunch! Ta-ta teeth.<br>Yum yum. Henry's crocodile had a big fat smile on its face.</p><p>Blah blah blah books blah blah blah read blah blah blah prize blah blah<br>…PRIZE?</p><p>Horrid Henry stopped doodling.<br>"What prize?" he shrieked.</p><p>"Don't shout out, Henry," said Miss Battle-Axe.</p><p>Horrid Henry waved his hand and shouted: "What prize?"</p><p>"Well, Henry, if you'd been paying attention instead of scribbling, you'd know, wouldn't you?" said Miss Battle-Axe.</p><p>Horrid Henry scowled. Typical teacher. You're interested enough in what they're saying to ask a question, and suddenly they don't want to answer.</p><p>"So, class, as I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted," she glared at Horrid Henry. "You'll have two weeks to read as many books as you can for our school reading competition. Whoever reads the most books will win an exciting prize. A very exciting prize. But remember, a book report on every book on your list, please."</p><p>Oh. A reading competition. Horrid Henry slumped in his chair. Phooey.</p><p>Reading was hard, heavy work. Just turning the pages made Henry feel exhausted. Why couldn't they ever do fun competitions, like whose tummy could rumble the loudest, or who shouted out the most in class, or who knew the rudest words? Horrid Henry would win those competitions every time.</p><p>But no. Miss Battle-Axe would never have a fun competition. Well, no way was he taking part in a reading contest. Henry would just have to watch someone undeserving like Clever Clare or Brainy Brian swagger off with the prize while he sat prize-less at the back. It was so unfair!</p><p>"What's the prize?" shouted Moody Margaret.</p><p>Probably something awful like a pencil case, thought Horrid Henry. Or a bumper pack of school dish rags.</p><p>"Candy!" shouted Greedy Graham.<br>"A million bucks!" shouted Rude Ralph.<br>"Clothes!" shouted Gorgeous Gurinder.<br>"A skateboard!" shouted Aerobic Al.<br>"A hamster!" said Anxious Andrew.<br>"Silence!" bellowed Miss Battle-Axe.<br>"The prize is a family ticket to a brand new theme park."</p><p>Horrid Henry sat up. A theme park! Oh wow! He loved theme parks! Roller coasters! Water rides! Cotton candy!</p><p>His mean, horrible parents never took him to theme parks. They dragged him to museums. They hauled him on hikes. But if he won the competition, they'd have to<br>take him. He had to win that prize. He had to. But how could he win a reading competition without reading any books?</p><p>"Do comics count?" shouted Rude Ralph.</p><p>Horrid Henry's heart leapt.<br>He was king of the comic book readers. He'd easily win a comic book competition.</p><p>Miss Battle-Axe glared at Ralph with her beady eyes.</p><p>"Of course not!" she said. "Clare! How many books do you think you can read?"</p><p>"Fifteen," said Clever Clare.<br>"Brian?"<br>"Eighteen," said Brainy Brian.<br>"Nineteen," said Clare.<br>"Twenty," said Brian.</p><p>Horrid Henry smiled. Wouldn't they get a shock when he won the prize? He'd start reading the second he got home.</p>
