The 13-Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths, illustrated by Terry Denton
Andy and Terry live together in an amazing 13-story tree house. It has a bowling alley, a secret laboratory, swinging vines, a see-through swimming pool and even a man-eating shark tank. Unfortunately, all of these fun things around them are distracting them from finishing the book that is due in to the publisher! They have barely started and it needs to be finished quickly. But what are you supposed to do when there are flying cats, giant bananas, an evil sea monster, gangs of rampaging monkeys, and burp-filled bubblegum bubbles around you? You will just have to read the book to find out how Andy and Terry managed to finish their book in time.
Wildly funny and perfect for children who enjoy books like Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The author and illustrator worked together beautifully, creating a hilarious world that is a pleasure to visit. The book has illustrations throughout, black and white line drawings that add to the silliness of the story. Do not read this one looking for logic, just enjoy the giggles!
A great pick for reluctant readers who will appreciate the silly storyline and funny illustrations that effectively break up the text. Get this into the hands of your Wimpy Kid fans! Appropriate for ages 6-10.
