The 52-Storey Treehouse
Illustrated by Terry DentonAges 7 to 11
The 52-Storey Treehouse is the fourth book in Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton's wacky treehouse adventures, where the laugh-out-loud story is told through a combination of text and fantastic cartoon-style illustrations.
Winner of the ABIA Book of the Year Award.
Andy and Terry's incredible, ever-expanding treehouse has thirteen new storeys (it used to be 13, then 26, then 39, but they keep expanding!) including a watermelon-smashing level, a wave machine, a life-size snakes and ladders game (with real ladders and real snakes!), a rocket-powered carrot launcher, a Ninja Snail Training Academy and a high-tech detective agency with all the latest high-tech detective technology. Which is lucky, because they have a BIG mystery to solve – Where is Mr Big Nose???
Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up!
Full of crazy, funny pictures, which will make you laugh . . . Extremely enjoyable, very funny and easy to read!
With its slapstick humour, brilliant absurdities and some bonus puzzles to solve at the back of the book, The 13-Storey Treehouse is the best 'tall story' you'll read this year!
Lancashire Evening Post on 13-Storey Treehouse
Longtime collaborators Griffiths and Denton (Killer Koalas from Outer Space) get metafictional in their latest book (first published in Australia), and the result is anarchic absurdity at its best... Denton's manic cartooning captures every twist and turn in hilarious detail, as babies are pelted with garbage, yapping dogs squashed, and monkeys catapulted into the distance.
