Product Description

Got time for a chuckle? Love cheeky giggles? Read this! Bags of silly fun with Horrid Henry to help you start reading on your own. Henry is off on a camping holiday in France. Hurray! It’s time for luxury and laziness galore. Moody Margaret has told him all about camping: a huge tent with soft beds, a giant TV, a swimming pool and a disco. So Henry gets a horrid shock when the family arrive at a bare, rocky campsite in the middle of nowhere. How will he escape?

  • A favourite Horrid Henry story in a short easy reader
  • Simple text split into highly illustrated chapters
  • New colour pictures by star illustrator 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.”

    If you want to know what Henry is up to then this ideal for you and if you want to know how to survive a horrible day read it!

    This is a brilliant book, with tips, excitement and pleasure. Read it and experience the real joy of outdoor fun and Horrid Henry.

    I rate it 10/10 for its features, themes, ideas and more! It is an excellent book!
