Overview


Andy and Terry live in a treehouse. But it’s not just any old treehouse, it’s the most amazing treehouse in the world!

This treehouse has thirteen stories, a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, a secret underground laboratory, and a marshmallow machine that follows you around and automatically shoots marshmallows into your mouth whenever you are hungry.

Life would be perfect for Andy and Terry if it wasn’t for the fact that they have to write their next book, which is almost impossible because there are just so many distractions, including thirteen flying cats, giant bananas, mermaids, a sea monsters pretending to be mermaids, enormous gorillas, and dangerous burp gas-bubblegum bubbles!

Join the fun with The 13-Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
Imagine this: a room full of pillows; a bowling alley; a lemonade fountain; underground laboratory; man-eating shark tank; see-through swimming pool; game room; theater; and library. The list of what can be found in this amazing 13-story tree house goes on; it is where Andy and Terry live and work, attempting to write a book while getting distracted in the most amazing ways. Take the cat that Terry magically turns into a canary. The "catnary" flies off to have other adventures while Terry and Andy sit down to work on the book that is under deadline. But, wait. Terry's favorite television show is one. We must watch it! Then, the doorbell rings. The mailman has arrived with Terry's sea monkey eggs. Only, it turns out there has been some sort of mistake. No monkeys, only one monster mermaid that is determined to take the boys prisoner in her under seas lair! This and many other escapades await the boys as they attempt to finish their assignment. In the style of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" and "Dear Dumb Diary" series' this book takes words and pictures to a new, silly, ridiculous level that middle school readers will no doubt devour. Boys in particular will like the burping contests, gross creatures, and ridiculous choices that Terry and Andy make throughout the book. And as if killer mermaids are not enough, there are sea monkeys. And a giant gorilla. And a giant banana. And the return of the catnary. See? Silly, ridiculous fun. Kids will love it. Reviewer: Kris Sauer
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Andy and Terry live in a treehouse. In addition to the normal rooms found in a house, it has a theater and library, a bowling alley, and a games room. The boys write and illustrate books, and are far behind on their deadline for their publisher, Mr. Big Nose. They bicker and procrastinate and experience many adventures and misadventures. Wacky stories about flying cats, a monster mermaid, a treehouse full of monkeys, and a banana-seeking giant gorilla will entertain and delight readers. Fun cartoons on every page will engage them and inspire giggles. The situations are described and illustrated so completely that readers will be instantly transported to the fantastic world of the 13-story treehouse. Fans of Jeff Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid"(Abrams) and Lincoln Peirce's "Big Nate" series (HarperCollins) will be drawn to this book, while parents will enjoy the absence of snarky humor.—Erica Thorsen Payne, Meriwether Lewis Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA
Publishers Weekly
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. Young buddies Andy and Terry live together in the sort of tree house that kids dream about, complete with bowling alley, shark tank, vines to swing from, and underground laboratory. With so many distractions, is it any wonder that they’re late with the book due to their publisher, Mr. Big Nose? “We were a little behind schedule,” confides Andy. “Well, when I say ‘a little behind schedule,’ I mean a lot behind schedule. And when I say ‘a lot behind schedule,’ I mean a LOT LOT LOT behind schedule.” It’s due tomorrow, but before they can get to work, they have to handle an escaped catnary (a cat turned canary), “burp-gas-filled bubblegum bubbles,” and a horde of destructive monkeys. 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. A sequel was published last year in Australia and can’t arrive soon enough. Ages 8–12. (Apr.)

"A series starter that will appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney and Dav Pilkey . . . A treat for all . . . And guess what? It makes for good tree house reading." — Booklist

"Fans of Jeff Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”(Abrams) and Lincoln Peirce’s “Big Nate” series (HarperCollins) will be drawn to this book, while parents will enjoy the absence of snarky humor." — School Library Journal

    Hott Synopsis: Andy and Terry are just typical boys¿ typical boy

    Hott Synopsis:
    Andy and Terry are just typical boys… typical boys with a 13-story treehouse. Oh, not just any old treehouse, either, a treehouse with a pool, a lab, elevators, shrinking machines, and much much more.
    They also have a writing contract with a due date of last Friday.
    LAST FRIDAY!?!?!
    Oh, no! The boys need to get writing… right after they turn the cat into a canary and hatch the sea monster – I mean sea monkey.

    Hott Review:
    What I liked: This book was so much fun! I started reading it to the kids during a game at half-time and couldn’t stop reading when the game started again ;(. Andy & Terry were really living the dream life of most boys and quite a few sat around as I read because it was so funny.
    What I didn’t like: It’s kind of a boys story so some of the stuff was a bit ickier that the girls liked.

    My son LOVED this book. Sometimes it's very challenging to get him to read but we got into a little argument about putting the book down and going to bed. Then, when he awoke the next morning, he came out of his room holding the book and finished it. He can't wait for the next one (next year!!!???)...
