Product Description

Henry isn’t usually interested in sharing – but all that changes on the day that he gets nits. Being the horrid kid he is, he decides to make sure that everyone else gets them too… especially Perfect Peter! Once that mission is accomplished, he can turn his attention to sabotaging the school trip, ruining his parents’ dinner party and playing even more horrid pranks on poor old Peter!

Author/Illustrator

Francesca Simon

101508 francesca simon 1 206760

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.”

    The plot is a little unrealistic because you can`t make the headlice crawl onto someone else`s head because it takes ages to find them.

    Horrid Henry ’s nits is a very very funny book. One of my favorite parts of the book was when Henry’s mum was checking Henry for nits Henry was counting them! This book made me laugh out loud very often,so if you like a good laugh this book is for you.
