Author(s): Tim Harris
Toffle Towers hotel has been run by a Toffle for over one hundred years - and it's 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?
Fawlty Towers meets Treehouse in Tim Harris's brand-new series to make kids laugh out loud - and get their imaginations soaring.
