The Lovereading4Kids comment

For absurd, anarchic, keep-them-reading comedy adventures, kids can’t do better than climb into Andy and Terry’s world. If you haven’t discovered this series, it stars Andy and Terry and their amazing custom-built treehouse, any child’s dream (adult-free) adventure-playground. Whatever they fancy, they build so the treehouse includes a watermelon smashing machine, a life size snakes and ladders game with real snakes and real ladders, even a Ninja Snail Training Academy. Andy and Terry are the real Andy and Terry, constantly harassed by their publisher Mr Big Nose to deliver their next book. In this adventure, he’s been kidnapped so the authors set off to rescue him. The story is wonderfully nutty and inventive, Denton’s cartoons adding to the craziness, and hugely entertaining. Adults – there’s a very good hungry caterpillar joke too on page 208.

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. ~ Andrea Reece
