Novel Entertainment has paired up with Rubies Masquerade UK for a new Horrid Henry promotional activity alongside the dress-up costume for the brand.
Launching during the week of World Book Day (March 3), for which Rubies is an official corporate partner, the initiative includes an exclusive offer for 250 fans to receive a free copy of a specially created comic-style book entitled Horrid Henryâ€™s Vile Vacation when they purchase a Horrid Henry dress-up costume through one of Rubies official retail partners. The offer will be supported on both Rubies and Novel Entertainmentâ€™s Horrid Henry official social media channels.
The book is based on the popular TV episode of the same name, written by Novel Entertainmentâ€™s co-founder and creative director Lucinda Whiteley, and follows Henry on the trip of a lifetime, even though it isnâ€™t quite what he was expecting.
Under Novel Entertainmentâ€™s long-term deal with Rubies, the Horrid Henry costume is available in childrenâ€™s sizes. There is also a â€˜Bag of Tricksâ€™ available, featuring essentials for every budding prankster and Horrid Henry fan.
