Horrid Henry Wakes the Dead

He’s terrorised his teachers, bullied the babysitter and left all his classmates cowering. But Horrid Henry’s latest hullabaloo is enough to wake the dead! Our tiny terror has found a surefire way to wield the remote control so that he always watches the programme of his choice. And that’s not all. He goes face-off with Moody Margaret to become the head of the school, conjures up mayhem as a magician in the school talent show – and almost has a fight to the death with Perfect Peter over who gets the green dinosaur and who gets the purple one!
