Product Description

Carrot noses? For wimps. Henry’s killer snowman has fangs and a Viking hat. Three cheeky stories that pack more punch than an icy snowball. Ouch. If there is a contest of any kind, who will win it? Horrid Henry. He even won the boring reading competition at school, right? (OK: we know he cheated.) So winning the best snowman prize is going to be a doddle. Henry doesn’t care how abominable he has to be – as long as he comes first! Next up: Henry writes his will, and a famous author visits his school. Why, oh why, did no one warn her?

Francesca Simon is the author of the hugely successful Horrid Henry series, which has sold over 15 million copies. Henry is a terrible (but loveable) tearaway who leaves grown-ups in tears, and playmates cowering! Short chapters and line drawings from Tony Ross make these great choices for newly confident readers.

More about Francesca: “I was born in St Louis, Missouri, grew up in Los Angeles and attended both Yale and Oxford Universities, where I specialised in Medieval Studies. I then threw away a lucrative career as a medievalist and worked as a freelance journalist, writing for the Sunday Times, Guardian, Mail on Sunday, Telegraph, and Vogue.

After my son Joshua was born in 1989, I started writing children’s books full time.

I have published over 50 books, including the immensely popular Horrid Henry series, published in 17 countries and now a successful CITV animation series.

I live in London with my husband, son, and Tibetan Spaniel called Shanti.”

    This book was really good. I like the part when Henry sneaks out of his house and makes his snowman better than Margaret’s.

    I have the cd for this so I don’t have to read the book. It’s good when Perfect Peter wins a years supply of ice creams direct from the frosty freeze ice cream factory. Horrid Henry shouts “NOOOOOOOOOO!”
