If you read this book, milk might come out of your nose

Why do I love the Horrid Henry books? Because Sourcebooks writes, "If you read this book, you'll laugh so hard milk might come out of your nose!" If that doesn't make you want to read Horrid Henry, then I don't know what will.

Henry is back and yes, young readers' favorite bad-boy is getting in trouble as usual in HORRID HENRY AND THE ZOMBIE VAMPIRE. (I feel like I should be saying that in some evil Bwa-ha-ha voice and holding a white cat like Cee-Lo on The Voice!) There are 4 brand new stories...

-Horrid Henry Writes a Story:
Henry hurls a sprout at Perfect Peter at the dinner table as he's forced to sit and listen to Peter's horrific stories, so when Henry is forced to go to his room, he vows to write the greatest story ever.
-Horrid Henry and the Nudie Foodie
Henry's school is chosen to be a healthy-eating school, meaning their new healthy and nutritious meals will be an example for schools everywhere. Henry knows what that means--celery, beets, eggplants, and anything that tasted yucky and looked revolting. And to top it off, Mr. Nudie Foodie, the world famous chef, is there to help, but not if Henry has anything to do with it!
-Horrid Henry and the Mad Professor
Henry comes with a brilliant, spectacular idea when he's forced to play with Perfect Peter--they'll play Robot and Mad Professor. But what's Henry up to? You'll have to read this one to find out!
-Horrid Henry and the Zombie Vampire
A class sleepover in a museum? Henry's only consolation is his comic book he snuck in that explains how to tell whether anyone you know is a zombie vampire. Unfortunately, his comic is confiscated, but that doesn't stop Henry from tracking down the zombie vampires himself!

If you're a fan of Horrid Henry, you won't be disappointed with this new addition. Each story is more hilarious than the next and even if you don't agree with Henry's horrid ways, you have to admit, he is quite clever! Just don't drink any milk when reading this book!
