The #1 New York Times Bestseller, now a major motion picture starring Chloë Grace Moretz

The Passage meets Ender's Game in the first book in an epic series by award-winning author Rick Yancey.

Remarkable, not-to-be-missed-under-any-circumstances.--Entertainment Weekly


A modern sci-fi masterpiece . . .--USAToday.com


After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it's the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother--or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

91-Story Treehouse: Babysitting Blunders!

91-Story Treehouse: Babysitting Blunders!

$13.99
More Info

New York Times-bestselling team Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton invite readers to come hang out with them in their 91-Story Treehouse--the seventh book in the illustrated chapter book series filled with Andy and Terry's signature slapstick humor!

Andy and Terry live in a 91-story treehouse. (It used to be a 78-story treehouse, but they keep getting ideas for new stories!) It has a submarine sandwich shop that serves sandwiches the size of actual submarines, an air-traffic control tower, a human pinball machine, a spin-and-win prize wheel, a giant spider web--with a giant spider!-- and a big red button, which they're not sure whether to push or not because they can't remember what it does.

Good thing there's so many fun things to do in the treehouse, because Andy and Terry get stuck babysitting Mr. Big Nose's three grandchildren for the day.

After all, how much trouble could they possibly get into in just one day?

Praise for Andy Griffiths and the Treehouse series:

Anarchic absurdity at its best. . . . Denton's manic cartooning captures every twist and turn in hilarious detail. --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The 13-Story Treehouse

Will appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney and Dav Pilkey. . . . The wonderfully random slapstick humor is tailor-made for reluctant readers. . . . A treat for all. --Booklist on The 13-Story Treehouse

Twice the treehouse, twice the fun? You bet. . . . Denton's furiously scrawled line drawings milk the silly, gross-out gags for everything they're worth. Kids should be flipping pages faster than a pair of inflatable underpants can skyrocket the young heroes to safety. --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The 26-Story Treehouse
