    Featuring all nine books from the wonderful St Clare's series, our Enid Blyton St Clare's Collection contains the multi-million-selling author's six original stories and pairs them with Pamela Cox's three fabulous, continuative tales.

    When twins Pat and Isabel O'Sullivan finish their time at the elite school Redroofs, they expect, like their friends, to go on to the similarly elite and very expensive secondary school Ringmere. But their parents have different ideas for the twins as they find themselves attending St Clare's. Furious at their parents' decision to not send them to Ringmere, Pat and Isabel promise to be as difficult as possible at their new school...

    Eventually making friends at the school, the series follows the comic capers of the twins as they play tricks on unsuspecting classmates and teachers.

    Packed with the pace, fun and wit of her Malory Towers and Naughtiest Girl series, our Enid Blyton St Clare's Collection is essential reading for all budding Blyton-ites and children aged 9 and over who love a good prank!

    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+.

    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

    There can't be many children who wouldn't list both Christmas and dinosaurs among their favourite things. In this book for younger readers, McFly man (and one half of the duo behind the bestselling The Dinosaur Who Pooped... Christmas books) Tom Fletcher magically combines the two popular themes.

    This is a festive book that will appeal to fans of David Walliams and Cressida Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon series. It's engaging, emotional and features beautiful black-and-white artwork by Shane Devries.

    Somewhere in suburbia (or maybe even your town) is a special diner that serves the best chips you're ever likely to taste. It's so special because its customers could be considered 'unusual'. In fact, some would describe them as monsters!

    Joe the 'hooman' lands himself a job at Fuzzby's diner and has to learn how to bake zombie cupcakes, make exploding milkshakes and not stare at the customers - even the ones who are see-through...
