Horrid Henry just celebrated his birthday and just when he thought he had gotten all the presents he was going to get along comes a package from his aunt. It's a small, thin package so Horrid Henry is thinking he has hit the mother lode...it's just got to be money. Yayyy! He needs money to buy some really cool stuff like the Mutant Max lunchbox or the Rapper Zapper blaster.
But when he rips open the paper he discovers his Great Aunt Greta has done the unimaginable. She has sent him a pair of frilly underpants....decorated with hearts and bows.
You know how things can go from bad to worse? Well, Henry soon finds himself at school wearing pink, frilly underpants and they are showing. Is this a nightmare? Nope...it's realllllly happening.
