Horrid Henry was at school. Ms Natasha, Henry's teacher, was announcing that a new girl was joining the class. Ms Natasha also said that her name was Jelly Jessie.
When Jessie came into the classroom Horrid Henry nearly fainted. Horrid Henry had never seen such a beautiful girl. Henry and Jessie became close friends. After school, when Henry was home, he couldn't stop thinking about her.
