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 books.
