Make way for Alvin ISD third grader Dru Dotter! Dru is the grand prize winner of the nation wide Horrid Henry Rocks! Lyrics Contest for his entry “Pie” by The Vipers. Dru Dotter received a visit from the Horrid Henry costume character at school, a PaperJamz© guitar, and an autographed set of Horrid Henry books.
Third, fourth, and fifth graders across the U.S. were given the opportunity to write a hit song for Sourcebooks, an independent publisher who’s motivation for the contest derived from the latest release in the bestselling Horrid Henry book series, Horrid Henry Rocks! by Francesca Simon.
Horrid Henry is a publishing phenomenon the world over. The series has sold nearly 15 million copies in 27 languages, inspired a 3-D live action movie starring Anjelica Huston, and received incredible praise from librarians, book sellers, parents, and most importantly kids across the globe!”
Dru’s entry to the tune of “London Bridge”:
I am going to eat my pie, eat my pie, eat my pie.
I am going to eat my pie, eat more pie!
I got Cool Whip on my face, on my face, on my face.
I got Cool Whip on my face, I’m still hungry!
I want to take a nap, take a nap, take a nap.
I want to take a nap, on my bed!
