Product description

Bags of cheeky fun with Henry to help you start reading on your own. Great colour pictures by Tony Ross, with loads of brand new art. And one screamingly funny story – not too long and not too short. Super reading practice for all you tiny terrors. Horrid Henry hates car journeys – and now he’s on a stupid car trip that means missing Rude Ralph’s birthday party. Yikes. Watch out, parents! Horrid Henry means to stop the car – whatever it takes!

    I liked this book and the funny part was when peter and Henry’s face turned green and they both got sick in the car. Love it.

    I think that this book is funny because Horrid Henry and Peter puke on Mum and Dad! I won’t tell you any more in case I spoil it for you! All I’ll say is that Francesca Simmons is a very talented author!

    My favourite part of the book was when they all stopped at the service station for a rest and to go to the toilet and henry locked himself in and pretended to be trapped inside, unfortuanately he had locked himself inside a toilet with a gap underneath! I also liked the good twist at the end… But you will have to read the book to find out!

    I also enjoyed the fact that I could read the whole book in 1 evening as a bedtime story as I could not put it down, iit was so good!

    I rate this book 10/10 because it was the best horrid henry book I have ever read as I could read most of the words rather than getting mum to read most of the words!
