August 2019 Book of the Month | Climbing up into Andy Griffith’s and Terry Denton’s ever-growing treehouse guarantees a burst of brilliant, zany, fast-moving comic adventure. In this episode – which picks up on their World Book Day mini-book – illustrator Terry gets to be the narrator, with some alarming results. Indeed, Andy is forced to rescue them by using the old ‘it was all a dream’ ending, which in turn leads to them being pursued and arrested by the Story Police. As always, the story is told through a combination of words and pictures, both equally inventive, entertaining and surreal. It’s no wonder that these stories are so loved by readers, long may the treehouse continue to sprout new storeys.
The higher Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s treehouse grows, the better. There are few books that reach such levels of absurd comedy and adventure, and the authors’ ability to weave the craziest adventures into satisfying plots is phenomenal. As the treehouse reaches 104 storeys, new additions include a stupid-hat level, and a money-making machine that also makes honey. They still have their books to write for Mr Big though, and as always are up against the delivery deadline. But Andy’s got toothache and can’t laugh because of the pain. Could a Joke Writer 2000™ pencil be the answer to their problems? 104 Storeys and 300+ pages of brilliant, ingenious cartoon adventure.
The 'Treehouse' series of books by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton reliably provides kids with some of the most inventive, entertaining and deliciously daft reading around, and this new activity book takes the fun on to a different level. Across 150 joke-filled colourful pages are a series of Treehouse related games, puzzles and activities. The best are those which ask readers to imitate Andy and Terry and, for example, to make up their own mixed-up animals, create a fun food level for the Treehouse or draw an explosion (explosions are one of the boys’ specialities). 100% entertaining and a good incentive to all readers to create their own chaotic fun in a book. ~ Andrea Reece
Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton return with another surreal, inventive and comic tale about their adventures in their ever-expanding treehouse which, for anyone who doesn’t know, encompasses everything from a human pinball machine to a chocolate waterfall. Left in charge of their publisher Mr Big Nose’s grand-children, the duo are soon whirled into adventure and literally: saving the Big Nose littlies from the treehouse’s giant whirlpool, they are sucked 20 000 leagues under the sea. Fortunately, Andy has his submarine sandwich with him, which not only looks like a submarine, it functions like one too. It’s no wonder that these books are so enormously popular with children; they’re full of inspired silliness, humour that draws on kids’ wildest dreams, and the gap between the child and the adult worldview. 91 storeys of fun!

In a nutshell: surreal, kid-pleasing comic adventures set in an ever-growing treehouse | Andy and Terry’s treehouse keeps growing, to the delight of its army of devoted readers. It’s now 78 storeys high (new additions include an ALL-BALL sports stadium where you can play every ball sport in the world at the same time), and it’s about to be the subject of a movie. In fact the making of the movie is the subject of the story, and as you might expect things don’t run smoothly - Andy is upset when his role is given not to him but to Mel Gibbon, a gibbon! Oscars should go to both Andy and Terry for creating another tour de force of wacky invention and non-stop action, a mix of verbal and visual jokes that will once again have their readers rolling in the aisles.

In a Nutshell: Mind-boggling adventures – ants - craziness Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton are experts in the crazy, surreal humour that kids love and there seems to be no limit to their invention. For those that don’t know, the books star Andy and Terry themselves and their amazing fun-filled, multi-storey treehouse. In this episode after adding a lollipop shop, quicksand pit and balloon orchestra to the treehouse, they realise Terry forgot to apply for a building permit, and now an inspector is on his way. There’s only one solution: invent a time machine and go back in time for the permit. Unfortunately, they go back 650 million years instead of six and a half, and accidentally take the inspector too. Nutty cartoon strip style comic adventures and unbeatable fun. ~ Andrea Reece For more irresistible, funny, highly illustrated reads for the under tens, try the Tom Gates series by Liz Pichon; Jim Smith’s Barry Loser books; the Timmy Failure series by Stephan Pastis; and Dav Pilkey’s Captain Underpants series.
