Horrid Henry Early Reader: Horrid Henry's Underpants

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’
