Horrid Henry is back

Horrid Henry and the Abominable SnowmanHeeeee'ssssss Baaaaccccck!  Young readers' favorite bad boy returns in Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman.

You can expect the usual silliness and humor you've come to expect from this entertaining series by Francesca Simon in 4 brand new stories. In this installment, Horrid Henry's reign of mischief continues as he creates a snowman for the frosty freeze snowman competition where he could win free ice cream for a year. Needless to say, the competition heats up. You'll also splash into Henry's rainy day antics when he decides to write his will. We know how much trouble Henry can get into when he's bored. You'll also learn what happens when Henry starts a makeover business and my personal favorite, you'll get a good laugh when Henry's favorite author comes for a school visit. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again--Horrid Henry is fun and a character young readers will enjoy reading about. He's a troublemaker, plain and simple, but  that's what makes him a character you just can't get enough of.
