    Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and David Walliams will love Andy Griffiths' The 13-Storey Treehouse. Now presented in a cool slipcase, these engaging books are wonderfully wacky, amazingly anarchic and marvellously madcap. In fact, we'd go as far to say you'll be laughing at these tales just as much as the kids!

    Andy and Terry live in the world's greatest treehouse and in the first book (The 13-Storey Treehouse) you will learn about how it houses everything from a giant catapult to a tank of man-eating sharks and, perhaps best all, a machine that fires marshmallows at you when you're hungry.

    As the series progresses, this magical treehouse receives a number of 13-storey extensions - and things continue to get crazier! The 29-Storey Treehouse finds it being home to an ice-cream-serving robot called Edward Scooperhands; The 39-Storey Treehouse has a roller coaster providing the thrills; The 52-Storey Treehouse is home to a real-life game of Snakes & Ladders; The 65-Storey Treehouse has a birthday room where it's ALWAYS your birthday; The 78-Storey Treehouse only finds an ALL-BALL sports stadium being added to the development; and the 91-Storey Treehouse contains a human pinball machine.

    The short chapters and wild plots make these paperback books instantly appealing and Terry Denton's amazing illustrations just add to the thrills!

    This collection includes books 1-7 in Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton's The 13-Storey Treehouse series. Format: paperback

    The Gruffalo has become one of the most-loved children's characters of all time and this 10-CD collection brings him, and many of his equally brilliant friends from Julia Donaldson's collection of books, to life in audio format.

    Perfect for long journeys and for keeping children entertained whatever the weather, among those delivering the soothing, rhyming stories are Imelda Staunton, Alexander Armstrong and even Julia Donaldson herself!

    A Squash and a Squeeze is a charming story; while Room on the Broom is hilarious; and The Snail and the Whale is quite rightly regarded as a children's classic. There is even The Gruffalo Song and Other Songs included, a CD which contains some of Julia's very own fun-filled action songs for children aged 3 and over.

    CDs in this collection:
    What the Ladybird Heard, Charlie Cook's Favourite Book, The Troll, The Snail and the Whale, Room on the Broom, The Smartest Giant, A Squash and a Squeeze, The Gruffalo's Song, The Gruffalo's Child and The Gruffalo.

    Jo Nesbo may be best-known for his gritty Nordic crime thrillers, but did you know he's also a most-talented children's author? The Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder series is full of the zest and anarchy of David Walliams and Roald Dahl's most popular novels.

    This collection brings together all four hilarious novels in this bestselling series. The crazy plots revolve around Doctor Proctor - an inventor who dreams of becoming famous. When he creates a super-strength fart powder that can propel people into outer space, he may have just achieved his goal... But he hasn't counted on the ruthless twins Tuis and Trym spoiling his plans. The fart-filled adventure takes in a firework extravaganza, a trip to prison and an escaped anaconda!

    The other books in the series are equally delightfully absurd - Doctor Proctor, Nilly and Lisa have to win a football tournament to save the last of Norway's gold (which has been turned into the trophy), the Doctor works on a Time-Travel Bath Bomb and he and his friends discover a TV show is hypnotising everyone who watches it... Wickedly funny stories for children, including reluctant readers, aged 9+.
