Henry certainly is horrid. This may be partly explained by the fact that he has Perfect Peter as a brother and Moody Margaret next door. Four short stories about Henry who brings chaos to the dancing class, burns the tent pegs on a camping trip to France, and makes 'glop' with Margaret in his mum's pristine kitchen. Henry doesn't get his own way all the time, though, and Perfect Peter gets his comeuppance too. Easy read; large print; lots of black and white illustrations. There are other Horrid Henry books available; ask your library or book shop.
