Young practical jokesters had a gas at Anderson’s Bookshop.
The store had its first ever “Whoop-Off”.
Fans of the popular “Horrid Henry’ book series blew up and sat on Whoopi cushions in celebration of the series’ latest release, “Horrid Henry and the Zombie Vampire.”
The title character’s a prankster who gets into all sorts of trouble – like setting off a Whoopi cushion and he even joined the kids at the bookshop.
“It was really funny…it was a great way to spend April’s Fools Day.”
Members of Sourcebook, the book’s Naperville-based publication company, also read a passage from the recent installment.
They want to hold another event next year and break the Guiness world record for number of people sitting on Whoopi cushions at the same time.
