    The winner of Book People's Bedtime Story Competition, Isabel Harris' The Moon Man is an exciting book and truly is one of a kind. It tells the tale of two sets of animal friends who view a scarecrow in very different ways...

    We asked children aged between 5 and 11 to let their imaginations run wild and write a picture book of between 200 and 800 words based around animals. This fantastic story, chosen by a panel of celebrity parents and publishing experts and illustrated by Ada Grey, is the judges' favourite and is perfect for reading at bedtime.

    Sold exclusively at BookPeople.co.uk, proceeds from this book will be donated to Action for Children, a UK charity which provides vital services, support and campaigns for disadvantaged children, young people and their families.

    Please note all orders containing The Moon Man will be despatched in their entirety from 1 June onwards.

    For fans of Barry Loser, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and David Walliams, Andy Griffiths' The 13-Storey Treehouse books are wonderfully wacky, amazingly anarchic and marvellously madcap. In fact, we'd go as far to say you'll be laughing 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 can find out all 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 books progress, this magical treehouse receives a number of 13-storey extensions - and things continue to get crazier! The 29-Story 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-Story Treehouse is home to a real-life game of Snakes & Ladders; The 65-Story Treehouse has a birthday room where it's ALWAYS your birthday; and The 78-Storey Treehouse only finds an ALL-BALL sports stadium being added to the development.

    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 1-6 in Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton's The 13-Storey Treehouse series.
