    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.

    Danny Wallace, the author of Yes Man, has turned his attention to children's books with hilarious results. He's created a lovable character called Hamish and these three misadventures will delight readers of David Walliams, Tom Gates and David Baddiel.

    Hamish and the WorldStoppers asks what would you do if the world just stopped... the birds in the air, planes in the sky and every single other person has been frozen by The Terribles. But luckily, 10-year-old Hamish Ellerby knows all about them and is getting set to save the world.

    Hamish and the Neverpeople finds the Earth under threat from a shadowy figure, sinister monsters, thundering metal oddballs and beings that are just like humans (but also not at all); and Hamish and the GravityBurp finds Hamish coming home to find his mum and brother lying flat on their backs on the ceiling! He keeps hearing a burping noise and weird seeds are falling from the sky...
