Product description

Bags of cheeky fun with Henry to help you start reading on your own. Great colour pictures by Tony Ross, with loads of brand new art. And one screamingly funny story – not too long and not too short. Super reading practice for all you tiny terrors. Henry is horrified when his aunt sends him a pair of pink, frilly girls’ knickers as a birthday gift. He hides them in the darkest corner of his drawer to keep them secret. But disaster strikes on the fateful day when he wears them to school by mistake…

    This is an awesome book where you can have loads of fun with Henry. This book is very easy to read so I would recommend it to 6-8 year olds probably.

    Regret reading it, doesn’t have much words and mainly pictures, guess I should have got that from it being an ‘early reader’

    This is such a funny book. Horrid Henry and Perfect Peter are such opposites and Henry makes mistakes all the time and everyone thinks badly of him, but Peter is a bit annoyingly good!

    I have read this book, the best part in the story is when Henry is at school and he has to get changed for PE but he is wearing the ( Pink & Girly ) underpants !! It is a great book so if you have not already read you better get the book and do so and READ IT !!! :-)
