Product Description

Armbands at the ready! Henry hates swimming. It’s cold. It’s wet (ugh). It’s time for a horrid plan! Henry might be the prince of horrible, but that doesn’t mean he likes horrid things like school or doing sports. So it’s no surprise that Henry HATES Soggy Sid’s swimming lessons. They’re like school in a huge pit of cold water! Henry would do almost anything to get out of swimming lessons. But what horrid plan will he come up with? If you can read this funny book, you can laugh lots finding out. It’s easier than learning to swim, we promise!

  • A funny Horrid Henry story in a short easy reader
  • Simple text split into highly illustrated chapters
  • Brand new colour artwork by top artist Tony Ross
  • Ideal reading practice for Henry’s younger fans

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.”
