Recommended for readers from 6-8 years. Barky the Barking Dog originally appeared as a chapter in the Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton's popular The 13-Storey Treehouse. In a simple to read rhyming format for beginning readers, we follow Barky as he barks at everything from a rose to a gorilla's big hairy toes. He even barks at Terry and Andy and of course you!
Ten Unlucky Pirates was a chapter from Andy and Terry's bestselling The 26-Storey Treehouse. This rollicking rhyme is loosely based on the song Five Little Monkeys. Terry Denton's illustrations showcase his wicked sense of humour; there's a quirkiness to each colourful pirate predicament. Each meets a different fate - electrified by the sound equipment, attacked by the pirate tattooing machine or bucked off Kevin the mechanical bull.
