Andy and Terry live in a 26-story treehouse. (It used to be 13 stories, but they've expanded.) It has a bumper car rink, a skate ramp, an antigravity chamber, an ice cream parlor with 78 flavors, and the Maze of Dooma maze so complicated that nobody who has gone in has ever come out again. Well, not yet, anyway.
This time, the two friends have a whole week to finish their next book, and Andy even knows what it should be aboutthe story of how he and Terry first met. But, life is NEVER boring in the treehouse, and emergency shark operations, giant storms, and wooden pirate heads are just the beginning….
This title has Common Core connections.

THE 26-STORY TREEHOUSE
Hi, my name is Andy.
This is my friend Terry.
We live in a tree.
Well, when I say "tree," I mean treehouse. And when I say "treehouse," I don't just mean any old treehouse—I mean a 26-story treehouse! (It used to be a 13-story treehouse, but we've added another 13 stories.)
So, what are you waiting for?
Come on up!
We've added a bumper car rink,
a skate ramp (with a crocodile-pit hazard),
a mud-fighting arena,
an antigravity chamber,
an ice-skating pond (with real, live ice-skating penguins),
a recording studio,
a mechanical bull called Kevin,
an ATM (that's an Automatic Tattoo Machine, in case you didn't know),
an ice-cream parlor with seventy-eight flavors, run by an ice cream-serving robot called Edward Scooperhands,
and the Maze of Doom—a maze so complicated that nobody who has gone in has ever come out again.
As well as being our home, the treehouse is also where we make books together. I write the words and Terry draws the pictures.
As you can see, we've been doing this for quite a while now.
Sure, Terry can be a bit annoying at times ...
but mostly, we get on pretty well.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchase this book for my grandson (8years old), he just loves the book and can not put it down. He read the 13 story Treehouse and we waited over a year for this one to be released. I think it is great book if you are trying to get a child to read more.
This one was ok but not as funny as the first one.
