So who better to explore it than the world’s most horrible boy? He’s ready to share loads of wickedly wonderful facts and trivia, guaranteed to have you spluttering and clutching your sides. It’s the perfect guide to all the nasty things you never wanted to know about bodies – with heaps of yucky facts and jokes, Horrid Henry style!

    Weird and wonderful facts

    One not just for lovers of Horrid Henry's exploits.This is the first of a new series of non-fiction books which is both funny and factually correct.Great for children who don't particularly enjoy fiction but who seize upon weird and wonderful facts. There are Horrid Henry references throughout and the illustrations are particularly apt.
    I certainly didn't know that cows can only dream lying down...!
