BAD JACK HORNER

Bad Jack Horner
Sat in a corner
Pulling the wings off a fly.
He swore at his mum
Kicked his dad in the bum,
And said 'Oh, what a bad boy am I'.

      Comments about The Bad Book:

      My 8 year-old loved this book and the Very Bad Book. Andy Griffiths just hits the mark for this age group. Thanks to these and other Andy Griffiths books we have a bookworm in the family. Light and easy for him to read; entertaining, a bit naughty, very funny.

        Andy Griffiths

        Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton are a creative partnership that began with Just Tricking! in 1997 and now extends to six Just books and over a million copies sold. Their partnership continued with the award-winning The Bad Book, the off-the-wall success of The Cat on the Mat is Flat (which has been shortlisted for the CBC Book of the Year for Younger Readers award) and, most recently, What Bumosaur is That? They are now published all over the world including the US, where Andy's Bum books have made the New York Times bestseller lists.
