From the publisher:

The French Confection

The hard-up Diamond Brothers win a weekend for two in Paris, but they find themselves in danger as soon as they arrive. There's a nasty smell in the air, not the cheese. If Nick and Tim aren't careful, their dream holiday could be a nightmare, and they'll never wake up.

The Blurred Man

Lenny Smile has been run over by a steamroller. He used to run a children's charity called Dream Time, financed by millionaire Joe Carter. Now Carter wants to know what happened to Smile and his money. Unfortunately, he's hired the Diamond Brothers - the world's worst private detectives - to solve the mystery!

The in Public Enemy Number Two

Wisecracking young Nick Diamond shares a prison cell with Johnny Powers, Public Enemy No. 1. His only chance of rescuing the situation is to nail the master criminal, the Fence. But first, Nick has to get out of jail.

The Falcon's Malteser

When a dwarf comes into the office and leaves a package, Tim Diamond, the world's worst private dick, is faced with his most challenging case yet. The office is ransacked, and the package is found to contain a box of Maltesers. Who was the dwarf, and why was he murdered shortly after his visit?

South by South East

Tim is broke. So when a mysterious stranger offers him a wad of money for his overcoat, it seems like good fortune. But there are worse things than being broke. Being shot, for one – which is what happens to the stranger and could soon be the fate of the Diamond Brothers.


Anthony Horowitz, creator of the bestselling Alex Rider series, wrote a wickedly funny story with hilarious illustrations by Tony Ross. Twelve-year-old Joe has an unbelievably evil Granny. Not only is Granny physically repulsive and horribly mean, but she also has the look in her eye of a predatory crocodile. Soon, Joe starts to suspect that she has unpleasant designs on him. But what are they, and how can he foil them?

The Switch

When a dwarf comes into the office and leaves a package, Tim Diamond, the world's worst private dick, is faced with his most challenging case yet. The office is ransacked, and the package is found to contain a box of Maltesers. Who was the dwarf, and why was he murdered shortly after his visit?

The Devil and His Boy

London is dirty, distant and dangerous ... but that's where orphan Tom Falconer is heading. And he has a whole assortment of vicious criminals on his heels. Tom is helpless and alone until he meets Moll Cutpurse, a thirteen-year-old pickpocket. Together, they find themselves chased across the city by the murderous Ratsey. But it's only on the first night of a new play - The Devil and His Boy - that Tom realises that the fate of the Queen and, indeed, the entire country rests in his hands.

Groosham Grange

When a dwarf comes into the office and leaves a package, Tim Diamond, the world's worst private dick, is faced with his most challenging case yet. The office is ransacked, and the package is found to contain a box of Maltesers. Who was the dwarf, and why was he murdered shortly after his visit?

Return to Groosham Grange

Someone is trying to destroy David Eliot's school in the wickedly funny sequel to Groosham Grange by bestselling author Anthony Horowitz. A year ago, he'd have been happy to see the end of Groosham Grange and its ghoulish teachers. Now, he's on course to win the Unholy Grail, a cup of magical power presented to the star pupil. But a series of suspicious mishaps sees the gap between David and new boy Vincent King narrow alarmingly. 

It seems someone is trying to stop David from winning—and, worse, threatening Groosham Grange itself!

Fantastic fiction awaits in this hilarious collection from the highly decorated author Anthony Horowitz; this bumper box set will have your child in stitches, from Public Enemy Number Two to the stomach-tickling Groosham Grange.

Collectors of Roald Dahl books and the fan-favourite David Walliams series will fall in love with this instant-classic collection.
