Horrid Henry - Francesca Simon and Tony Ross

Because Horrid Henry (4 titles in all) (Sourcebooks, $4.99) is no model child, he takes the reader along for some real laughs. In one story, Henry is miserable because all of his classmates and even Peter Perfect, his younger brother, have lost teeth. He has lost none, and so he tries to outsmart the Tooth Fairy, with predictably disastrous results. Another story takes place at the fancy restaurant, Le Posh, where things don’t quite go how his parents planned with all that yucky fancy food. And then there’s Peter Perfect’s revenge against Henry with the love letters to Moody Margaret! Francesca Simon’s Horrid Henry is hilarious. Ages 6-10.
