Toffle Towers 1: Fully Booked




Fawlty Towers meets Treehouse in Tim Harris’s brand-new series to make kids laugh out loud – and get their imaginations soaring.

Toffle Towers is about to be inherited by the next generation.

Chegwin Toffle is only ten years old. But he isn’t going to let that stop him from turning this run-down hotel into a success. Chegwin is determined to transform Toffle Towers from a boring hotel for grown-ups into an incredibly exciting destination for children (and their families).

But running a hotel isn’t easy. Chegwin has a lot to learn, and his tendency to drift off into daydreams isn’t helping.

Chegwin has plenty of ideas. But can he turn his madcap daydreams into reality?

“This is an engaging read for younger readers...The characterisation is well written and the setting depicted so the reader can easily visualise what is happening...I am looking forward to the next book in this series. This will make a great addition to any public library and is a must for all primary school libraries. A great read aloud book, this will be enjoyed by many.”

“In a success story filled with laughs, odd characters (including Chegwin’s eccentric parents) and hilarious adventures Tim Harris has created a hotel to rival even the legendary Fawlty establishment. James Foley has completely captured the essence of the story and characters in his humorous illustrations and all in all this is bound to be a real hit with young readers.”
