    A phenomenon like no other, Harry's incredible journey begins with The Philosopher's Stone. Unhappily living in a cupboard under the stairs at his aunt's, he's visited by a giant called Rubeus Hagrid who delivers the most astonishing news - Harry's a wizard. As he heads to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry makes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, meets oh-so-wise Professor Dumbledore and the complex Severus Snape and their incredible adventure begins. But evil in the shape of Lord Voldemort is getting ever closer - and the Dark Lord has his sights set firmly on Harry.

    Throughout the seven books, Harry learns what it means to be a Gryffindor student and the value of friendship and trust. The eight films starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were a record-breaking success and now you can relive the stories where it all began time and time again with this amazing Harry Potter box set - Expecto Patronum!

    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!

    Shortlisted for the Costa Children's Book Award and longlisted for the CILIP Carnegie Medal, Ross Welford's Time Travelling with a Hamster is a truly original debut novel from an extraordinarily talented new voice in children's books.

    When Al Chaudhury discovers his late dad's time machine, he finds that going back to the 1980s requires daring and imagination. It also requires lies, theft, burglary, and setting his school on fire. And he has to make sure he doesn't lose his pet hamster, Alan Shearer...

    You'll laugh, cry and wonder at this race-against-time story of a boy who travels back to 1984 to prevent a go-kart accident and save his father's life.

    The other three books - The 1,000-Year-Old Boy; What Not to Do If You Turn Invisible; and The Dog Who Saved the World - in our collection are equally surprising, exciting and magnificent: Alfie can remember the last Viking invasion but no one believes him... He soon loses everything in a fire and decides it's time to find a way to die; Ethel learns the joy that comes from being invisible is rather short-loved; and 12-year-old Georgie has to save every dog on Earth and all of humanity without leaving her room when a virtual reality experiment goes wrong.

    Joe has moved to a new country with his family and things are starting to get a little bit strange!

    His suitcase has disappeared and seems to have been replaced by a polar bear. He had plans to blend in, but now he's going to have a huge bear with him at all times. At least Mister P is funny, caring and helpful(-ish)...

    These illustrated chapter books are packed with drama, heart and laughter and will encourage young readers to celebrate their individuality and learn about the importance of empathy. Mister P is there for Joe and his friends as she sits back and listens to his common worries and troubles and helps him tackle them in a positive (and subtle) way.
