This is another delightful book in the series! I had so much fun reading this book to my grandkids. They really like the antics of Henry. This book has 4 stories in it and is a great book for fall reading with the kids.

This book has 4 short stories. They are humorous. There are many Horrid Henry books out there. This one would be great for Halloween.
