Andy Griffiths | Terry Denton           
How many feet are in a story? Well, what's the story about? But seriously, it's 10.83 feet. So how tall is the bestselling TREEHOUSE SERIES now in its ninth volume? No idea. We're booksellers, not math....sellers. Either way, these books are great and everyone loves them so stop making us do math. Gosh.  
    
 
We return to the world of Raymie Nightingale, but this time author Kate DiCamillo focuses on Beverly. Full of strength and heartache, DiCamillo returns to form with what will surely be shortlisted for another Newberry.
