Publisher's Summary

The hilarious wacky new series from Australia's number one bestselling children's author, Andy Griffiths.

This is the first in a new four-book series of stand-alone novels all set in an imaginary school where crazy things can happen, and often do!

It doesn't take Henry McThrottle long to realise that Mr Brainfright, his new teacher at Northwest Southeast Central School, is rather unusual. His last teacher would never have fallen out of the window-twice-or taught Class 5C how to skid on banana peels.

But Henry's got even stranger things on his mind ...

On a trip to Principal Greenbeard's office, he discovers that there is buried treasure on Skull Island, which is somewhere in the school! Henry and his friends Jenny, Gretel, Newton and Jack set out to find a chest filled with gold, jewel-encrusted goblets and pieces of eight (whatever they are). But soon their secret is out, and everyone has treasure fever. Can they find the buried treasure, beat the bully, catch the villain and save their teacher, Mr Brainfright?

Great story

I loved the characters and the problem with Fred durkin and how he stopped them from doing the things they wanted and how Mr brain fright was about to leave and they all came to save him. I would recommend this book to anyone.

captivating and funny for all ages

My boys aged 5 and 8 listened to this story over several nights. my husband and I heard parts of the story in passing and found it just as amusing as the boys did. my eldest son in particular couldn't wait for each evening to find out how the story moved on. Lovely, innocent, funny story.

Great entertainment

We've listened to all the schooling around books. My children 5 and 9 have quietly been engrossed in these audio books in the car trips to and from school. And even I, as the parent have enjoyed listening.

Laugh out loud for all the family

On a long road trip we listened to Treasure Fever. The adults were laughing so much - it was hard to keep driving. We all got the giggles. Simple story, but clever characters. Every single one of them was at your school too.
