The 104-Storey Treehouse

Andy Griffiths, Terry Denton

Winner of Book of the Year for Younger Children (7–12) at the 2019 ABIA Awards

Join Andy and Terry in their wonderfully wild and wacky 104-storey treehouse.

You can throw some refrigerators, make some money with the money-making machine (or honey if you’d prefer-it makes that too), climb the never-ending staircase, have a bunfight, deposit some burps in the burp bank, get totally tangled up in the tangled-up level, or just take some time out and relax in the peaceful sunny meadow full of buttercups, butterflies and bluebirds.

Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up!

Review

I am a huge fan of the Treehouse books, they are excellently irreverent in a Pythonesque way (I have definitely seen a giant foot in amongst Terry’s drawings!). For those who haven’t yet been introduced to the phenomenon, Andy and Terry, the author and artist, live in a 104-storey treehouse and spend their time trying to write their books and get them to their publisher, the always-angry Mr Big Nose, by the deadline. They don’t really mean to save writing and drawing their books until the very last minute; it’s just that things keep happening to them!

Like all good double-acts there is a funny man – the puppy-like Terry – and a long-suffering straight man – Andy. Jill, their animal-loving neighbour, is the sensible one, although I’m not entirely sure you would call someone willing to do surgery on sharks ‘sensible’.

In The 104-Storey Treehouse, poor Andy has a toothache and can’t write. So, the two men and Jill get all mixed-up with a special joke writing pen, tooth-fairy money and climbing Mount Everest. Between the story and all of Terry’s tiny and crazy illustrations, this book guarantees hours-worth of re-reads!

This is, hands-down, the best book on budgeting, time management and oral health for all kids aged 5-104.
