Review:

Chock-full of interesting facts and figures. A fun read for little fact lovers. * THE BOOKBAG * Horrid Henry fans will delight in their favourite bad boy's book of disgusting facts. The way Henry looks at things, much about the body is pretty disgusting, so from ear wax through snoring to the highest jumping animal in the world, Horrid Henry gives his original take on the unusual and weird things about bodies. -- Julia Eccleshare * LOVEREADING4KIDS * Henry's packed-with-facts non-fiction range launches with a hilarious, and naturally, horrid guide to bodies. -- Fiona Noble * THE BOOKSELLER *
