Part of the The Treehouse Series SeriesWrite A Review
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.
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
