Meet Andy Griffiths, NYT-Bestselling Author of The 78-Story Treehouse
You may remember that Nicola's Books won the Treehouse Series display competition earlier in the year and the grand prize was an event with New York Times bestselling Treehouse series author Andy Griffiths! Well he is finally going to be visiting us all the way from Australia, and we know his fans are excited!
In his newest book ─ the sixth book in the illustrated chapter book series filled with Andy and his friend Terry's signature slapstick humor ─ Andy invites readers to come hang out with him and illustrator Terry in their 78-Story Treehouse!
Andy and Terry live in a 78-story treehouse. (It used to be a 65-story treehouse, but they just keep building more levels ) It has a drive-thru car wash, a courtroom with a robot judge called Edward Gavelhead, a scribbletorium, a combining machine, an ALL-BALL sports stadium, a high-security potato chip storage facility, and an open-air movie theatre with a super-giant screen . . . which is a very useful thing to have now that Terry's going to be a big-shot movie star
After Andy gets cut out of the movie, he and Terry have a big fight and decide they don't want to be best friends anymore. But with a herd of sneaky spy cows out to steal all their story ideas, can Andy and Terry make up before it's too late?
Praise for the Treehouse series:
"Anarchic absurdity at its best. . . . Denton's manic cartooning captures every twist and turn in hilarious detail." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The 13-Story Treehouse
"Will appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney and Dav Pilkey. . . . The wonderfully random slapstick humor is tailor-made for reluctant readers. . . . A treat for all." --Booklist on The 13-Story Treehouse
"Twice the treehouse, twice the fun? You bet. . . . Denton's furiously scrawled line drawings milk the silly, gross-out gags for everything they're worth. Kids should be flipping pages faster than a pair of inflatable underpants can skyrocket the young heroes to safety." --Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The 26-Story Treehouse
