Tony Ross illustrated the pictures and some of the characters from Horrid Henry are in the book...If you are after great facts about sports, I suggest you read this book. I give it a 10/10.

Packed with freaky facts and random trivia, this is the perfect guide to everything you ever wanted to know (and lots of things you might never have wanted to know) about the world of sport - Horrid Henry style!
