Product Description

The tiny terror full of fiendish pranks is back – wishing you a merry Christmas. Well, a merry Christmas Henry’s way, that is, which is not all that happy for anyone else. As he sabotages Miss Battle-Axe’s nativity play, ambushes Santa, and decides to give some horrible home-made Christmas gifts, you’ll be exploding with laughter. What a Christmas cracker!

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.”

    it was quite funny especially when his family pimply paul, prissy polly, grandma and grandpa comes round for Christmas dinner (including an eight legged insect)!also it is funny when henry makes a trap to catch father Christmas and when prissy polly gets a lovely Christmas present a bar of soap with black hairs on it!
