Horrid Henry Robs the Bank – This story is about Henry finds a fool-proof way to win at Gotcha as he had never won when he played against Moody Margaret. So what he did was very naughty! He went to Margaret’s house to steal the money from the Gotcha game. Read more about his cunning way of winning Margaret!
Also inside this book, it includes some extras! Like the Gotcha rules, in this story and there are more in the other stories too.
This book is perfect for older children especially as they are quite lengthy stories. It did take us a sitting to read one chapter a night. The stories are always interesting to read and fun to see what mischief Horrid Henry gets up too. One thing is for sure though, he is always mean to perfect Peter and bullied by Moody Margaret. I do find this book is perfect for my 7 year old son to read at the moment. Overall, this is a fun and interesting Horrid Henry and we love it!
