The 143-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton
Andy and Terry’s treehouse now has 13 new storeys, including a word-o-matic (it knows every word in the whole world!); a recycling depot; a wrecking ball; a complaining room; a spooky graveyard (where it’s always midnight, even in the middle of the day); a toffee-apple orchard guarded by a kind scarecrow; and a camping ground where you can have a nice, relaxing camping holiday – unless you get caught by hobyahs, put in a bag and poked with a stick, that is . . .
Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up!
Take Three Girls by Cath Crowley, Simmone Howell and Fiona Wood
3 award-winning authors.
1 compelling book.
Exploring friendship, feminism, identity and belonging, Take Three Girls is honest, raw and funny.
ADY – not the confident A-Lister she appears to be.
KATE – brainy boarder taking risks to pursue the music she loves.
CLEM – disenchanted swim-star losing her heart to the wrong boy.
All are targeted by PSST, a toxic website that deals in gossip and lies. St Hilda’s antidote to the cyber-bullying? The Year 10 Wellness program. Nice try – but sometimes all it takes is three girls.
