Ten favourite Horrid Henry stories, all about school. He gives the class nits, encounters a demon dinner lady, does his best to sabotage the school sports day, finds ingenious ways to get round doing his homework and reading books, and is publicly mortified by a pair of pink underpants. Francesca Simon has supplied extra material - complete lists of Horrid Henry's favourite and most hated teachers and classmates, accounts of his best and worst lessons, pages from his exercise book, school reports, a poem by himself, and more. Tony Ross has specially coloured some of the pictures and added some new ones, to make this a gorgeous new collection that all Horrid Henry fans will adore, even if they've read the stories already.
Francesca Simon spent her childhood on the beach in California, and then went to Yale and Oxford Universities to study medieval history and literature. She now lives in London with her English husband, Martin, and their son, Joshua. When she is not writing books she is doing theatre and restaurant reviews or chasing after her Tibetan Spaniel, Shanti. Tony Ross is one of the most popular and successful of all children's illustrators, with many picture books to his name as well as line drawings for many fiction titles.
