Four complete stories enhanced by Miranda Richardson's award-winning reading and really horrid music and effects: Horrid Henry encounters the babysitter from hell, traumatizes his parents on a car journey, goes trick or treating at Hallowe'en, and sabotages his school project. Four stories, as brilliant and inventive as ever, to add to 'the funniest series ever written about sibling rivalry and what it's like to be a young child' - Independent on Sunday
