    Hazardously funny mayhem is in store when Henry vows to win the class football match by any means – fair or foul! And you can chuckle at even more awful antics when Henry gets his mitts on Perfect Peter’s secret diary, and has a face-off with his old enemy Bossy Bill. Three great stories in one screamingly funny book to make you howl with laughter, starring the tiniest terror around!
