Horrid Henry: Horrid Henry and the Abominable Snowman

Carrot noses? For wimps. Henry’s killer snowman has fangs and a Viking hat. Three cheeky stories that pack more punch than an icy snowball. Ouch. If there is a contest of any kind, who will win it? Horrid Henry. He even won the boring reading competition at school, right? (OK: we know he cheated.) So winning the best snowman prize is going to be a doddle. Henry doesn’t care how abominable he has to be – as long as he comes first! Next up: Henry writes his will, and a famous author visits his school. Why, oh why, did no one warn her?

    This book was really good. I like the part when Henry sneaks out of his house and makes his snowman better than Margaret’s.

  • I have the cd for this so I don’t have to read the book. It’s good when Perfect Peter wins a years supply of ice creams direct from the frosty freeze ice cream factory. Horrid Henry shouts “NOOOOOOOOOO!”
