Product Description

Forget the Walliams TV special. Henry’s the king of Christmas comedy. Big bad laughs. Easy words. Hilarious colour art. Don’t you think the school nativity play is always lots of fun? So does Henry – and he really wants to be Joseph. But nasty Miss Battle-Axe has made him the inn-keeper. Boring. See that wicked glint in Horrid Henry’s eye? We think he’s got a naughty plan to make his own part BIGGER!

  • A festive riot packed with Tony Ross’s colour pictures
  • Brings a favourite Horrid Henry story to younger fans
  • Great for reading alone or sharing together
  • Ideal bridge between novels and picture books

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.”

Tony Ross

Multi-award-winning Tony Ross has become one of the best-known creators of original and traditional picture books and his work has been published all over the world. As well as his own books, he has illustrated books for authors such as Roald Dahl, Paula Danziger and Michael Palin.
