Horrid Henry Early Reader: Don't Be Horrid, Henry!: Book 1 by Francesca Simon
It's a dreadful shock for Horrid Henry when Perfect Peter is born, and despite his best - or worst - efforts, he can't manage to get rid of him. As Peter gets bigger, Henry gets crosser. But the day comes when Henry inadvertently finds himself saving Peter from a big fierce dog, and discovers that it's rather nice to be a hero. Setting the scene for the Horrid Henry storybooks, this is a story with a universally recognizable theme. The text is very simple and very funny: the artwork is bright and colourful in the spirit of the original Horrid Henry books.
