    The 13-Storey Treehouse Collection - 8 Books (Collection)

    Andy Griffiths

    (5) Hand-picked favourites
    Fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and David Walliams will love Andy Griffiths' The 13-Storey Treehouse. Now presented in a cool slipcase, these engaging books are wonderfully wacky, amazingly anarchic and marvellously madcap. In fact, we'd go as far to say you'll be laughing at these tales just as much as the kids!

    Andy and Terry live in the world's greatest treehouse and in the first book (The 13-Storey Treehouse) you will learn about how it houses everything from a giant catapult to a tank of man-eating sharks and, perhaps best all, a machine that fires marshmallows at you when you're hungry.

    As the series progresses, this magical treehouse receives a number of 13-storey extensions - and things continue to get crazier! The 29-Storey Treehouse finds it being home to an ice-cream-serving robot called Edward Scooperhands; The 39-Storey Treehouse has a roller coaster providing the thrills; The 52-Storey Treehouse is home to a real-life game of Snakes & Ladders; The 65-Storey Treehouse has a birthday room where it's ALWAYS your birthday; The 78-Storey Treehouse only finds an ALL-BALL sports stadium being added to the development; and the 91-Storey Treehouse contains a human pinball machine.

    The short chapters and wild plots make these paperback books instantly appealing and Terry Denton's amazing illustrations just add to the thrills!

    This collection includes books 1-8 in Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton's The 13-Storey Treehouse series.
