    A special 20th anniversary edition of the original collection of Horrid Henry stories, Francesca Simon's irresistibly naughty tales see our favourite trouble-magnet pretending to be perfect for the day (which causes far more chaos than Henry's usual bad behaviour) and falling out with next-door's Moody Margaret, as well as camping in France. Henry lives up to horrible expectations with plenty of grumpy and gruesome behaviour...

    Horrid Henry is ideal for encouraging reluctant readers from 5+ and this anniversary edition of the wicked and funny stories comes with brand new material for little ones to enjoy - Twenty Things You Didn't Know About Horrid Henry - and a fantastic double die-cut cover!

    Francesca Simon, one of the bestselling children's authors in the world, the creator of the Horrid Henry series, launches an exciting novel - The Sleeping Army - for children aged 8+.

    Freya is an ordinary girl living in modern Britain, but with a twist: people still worship the Viking gods. She's caught in her parents' divorce, and shuttling between bickering adults is no fun.

    One evening, stuck with her dad on his night shift at the British Museum, she is drawn to the Lewis Chessmen and Heimdall's Horn. Unable to resist, she blows the horn, waking three chess pieces from their enchantment; the slaves Roskva and Alfi, and Snot the Berserk.

    They are all summoned to Asgard, land of the Viking gods, and told they must go on a perilous journey to restore the gods to youth. If Freya refuses she will be turned into an ivory chess piece but, if she accepts her destiny and fails, the same terrible fate awaits her.

One evening, stuck with her dad on his night shift at the British Museum, she is drawn to the Lewis Chessmen and Heimdall's Horn.

    Brilliantly funny, original and a wholly new take on the Norse myths - and the travails of contemporary family life.

    Horrid Henry author Francesca Simon offers a thoroughly subversive twist on favourite fairy tale characters in Don't Cook Cinderella: A School Story with a Difference.

    It's just an ordinary day at Mother Goose's Academy. There's Miss Good Fairy teaching the Three Little Pigs, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood to read and write - while Miss Bad Fairy is inciting the Ugly Sisters, the Big Bad Wolf, Troll, Wicked Stepmother, Wicked Witch and Jealous Queen to gobble them all up. The result? Chaos!

    Witty, fast-paced and anarchic, this is a complete story with ten short chapters ('C.A.T. Spells Dog', 'What Troll Learned', 'Snakes and Snails for Lunch') that take us through the school day.

    Originally published as Big Class, Little Class, this freshly illustrated reissue brings Francesca Simon and Tony Ross together again in a wonderful romp that Horrid Henry fans will revel in.
