Four stories in one great book about a boy who always gets in trouble. Horrid Henry books appeal to both girls and boys alike and cause tears to roll down your face from laughing so hard. Thanks to the publisher of the Horrid Henry series, Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, I have one copy of Horrid Henry and the Mummy’s Curse to give away. It could be yours!

Horrid Henry and the Mummy's Curse Horrid Henry and the Mummy’s Curse

by Francesca Simon (Author), Tony Ross (Illustrator)

Reading level: Ages 7-10

Paperback: 112 pages

Publisher: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky (July 1, 2009)

Publisher’s synopsis: Horrid Henry indulges his favorite hobby—collecting Gizmos; has a bad time with his spelling homework; starts a rumor that there’s a shark in the swimming pool; and spooks Perfect Peter with the mummy’s curse.

Francesca Simon is one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors. She is the only American to have ever won the Galaxy Book Award, and her creation, Horrid Henry, is the #1 bestselling chapter book series in the UK—with a hit TV show and over fifteen million copies sold! Each book contains four easy-to-read stories and hilarious illustrations by the one and only Tony Ross, so even the most reluctant of readers won’t be able to resist Henry’s amazing talent for trouble!
