About this deal

Andy and Terry have built their biggest and most astonishing treehouse yet! It has everything they – and you – could wish for, including an electric pony stable, a Santa Land, a NOISY level, a kangaroo-riding range, a WHATEVER-WEATHER-YOU-WANT dome, a 100% edible gingerbread house and a hall of funhouse mirrors. But Anti-Andy, Terrible-Terry and Junkyard-Jill, their doppelgangers, are trapped in one of the mirrors – and they want out. Griffiths, Andy; Denton, Terry (illustrator) (2013). The 13-story treehouse. Feiwel and Friends. ISBN 9781250026903. LCCN 2013404222. And this 13th book is the LAST ONE in the series, which is why I just had to acquire this swansong title. Andy and Terry have added thirteen new levels and built their biggest and most astonishing treehouse yet! It has everything they - and you - could wish for including: an electric pony stable, a NOISY level, a weather dome (where you can have whatever weather you want whenever you want it), and an 100% edible gingerbread house and a potato-powered translation transmitter that allows you to talk to everything everywhere all at the same time.

This series is engaging, age-appropriate, and so outrageously fun it has spawned so many books like it. I highly recommend if you have young readers just starting to read, but it’s also a good comfort read for more confident readers. Andy and Terry live in a 169-story treehouse. (It used to be a 156-story treehouse, but they've added 13 more stories.) It now has a kangaroo-riding range, a WHATEVER-WEATHER-YOU-WANT dome and a hall of funhouse mirrors—the perfect place to hide from the truancy officer who is trying to catch them and make them go to school! They have to employ their 🥔 potato-powered translator to transmit a message to all treehouse residents and aliens alike, to come help Terry push! Push the door close! The book has spawned a series of sequels, each of them adding 13 stories to the treehouse and other humour fiction: While this might be the end of the Treehouse, it’s certainly not the end for Griffiths and Denton. I can’t wait to see where their wild imaginations take us next…Can Andy, Terry, and Jill escape school, save the treehouse from the doppelgänger mirror gang AND get their book written on time? The 13-Storey Treehouse is a 2011 book [1] written by author Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton, [2] and a stage play based on the book. [3] The story follows Andy and Terry, who are living in a 13-storey treehouse, struggling to finish their book on time among many distractions and their friend Jill, who lives in a house full of animals and often visits them. According to the book, the 13-storey treehouse has "a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, a tank full of man-eating sharks, a secret underground laboratory, a vegetable vaporizer and a marshmallow machine that shoots marshmallows into your mouths when it sees that you are hungry". Oh! And Andy and Terry need to get home to finish writing and drawing this book! I loved how they then take us to producing this book within a book, and then a bit of a wistful good bye.😭 However, Andy is still upset with how he and Terry haven't got their book done, but Terry suggests that they write what happened that day. They write the events up and with the help of Jill in a Santa-like sleigh, get their book to Mr Big Nose for it to be published. Andy has had a long-standing collaboration with the multi-talented illustrator Terry Denton. Together they have produced theJust! series, the wildly popular The Bad Book and The Very Bad Book, the ridiculous illustrated guide What Bumosaur is That?, and the Seussian-inspired early readers The Cat on the Mat is Flat and The Big Fat Cow that Goes Kapow! Their latest book is The 13-Storey Treehouse (September 2011).

A doorbell rings, however the duo discovered it was Jill, in which she thought she saw Silky. Andy confessed that it was Silky but Terry turned her into a canary. But Jill was glad and thanks Terry. There are lots of laughs at every level in The 169-Storey Treehouse , the last book in the worldwide bestselling Treehouse series by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. Andy and Terry have added thirteen new levels and built their biggest and most astonishing treehouse yet! It has everything they – and you – could wish for including: an electric pony stable, a NOISY level, a weather dome (where you can have whatever weather you want whenever you want it), and an 100% edible gingerbread house and a potato-powered translation transmitter that allows you to talk to everything everywhere all at the same time. This fantastic series finale really showcases Griffiths and Denton at their finest. Griffiths’ text is hilarious, Denton’s illustrations are exuberant, and the whole storyline is wonderfully, characteristically unhinged. When Andy and Terry began to write their book, a giant gorilla started shaking the tree yelling, “BANANA!” Then a chauffer arrives, informing Terry has won the Barky the Barking Dog drawing competition and gets to meet Barky. But squished by the giant gorilla.As the duo loses hope. 13 flying cats, lead by Silky, began fighting the gorilla. Which was successful. The canaries then lift the gorilla away.Blake, Jason (September 23, 2013). "Andy Griffith's 13-Story Treehouse goes to the edge of the ridiculous". Sydney Morning Herald . Retrieved 12 July 2014. The book starts with a whip-around tour of their biggest, most impressive treehouse yet. But it’s not long until things start to go awry, and Andy, Terry and Jill must use all their creativity, teamwork and problem-solving skills to set things right… Andy wakes up one morning, and on his way to getting breakfast, he meets Terry, painting a white cat yellow to turn it into a canary, or a "catnary". After being dropped from the treehouse, the cat grows wings and flies away. Andy and Terry are then greeted by their animal-loving friend Jill, who wants to find her pet cat, Silky. It turns out that the cat Terry painted was that exact cat. Andy and Terry try to remain innocent when Jill questions them. Right after Jill leaves, Andy and Terry receive a call via a 3D video phone by their publisher, Mr Big Nose, who is upset that the duo is behind schedule.

Winners of the Australian Book Industry Awards (ABIA) 2012 Announced". Readings . Retrieved 12 July 2014. This series holds a special place in my heart. From the day my young reluctant reader (now in the army 😂) came out of his room holding The 13-Storey Treehouse, asking “Mummy, do we have the next book?” — our whole set of books has been read many times over by the younger kids in the extended family. Andy and Terry have added yet another 13-storeys to their treehouse, making it a whopping 169 levels of awesome 🥳 This time, Terry leaves the door to the Whatever-Weather-You-Want dome open, and creates a once-in-a-millennium meteorological disaster! Unfortunately, the hall of funhouse mirrors is also the place where their evil trouble-making twins, Anti-Andy, Terrible Terry and Junkyard Jill live in a doppelgänger mirror, and they take advantage of the confusion to escape and wreak havoc in the treehouse. The book begins with the narrator and fictional depiction of the author, Andy Griffiths, giving an introduction to himself, his friend and illustrator Terry Denton, and their treehouse.There are lots of laughs at every level in The 169-Storey Treehouse, the last book in the worldwide bestselling Treehouse series by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. Later, the duo began to work on their book, but Terry was too sad to concentrate. Andy then gets Terry popcorn and lemonade to cheer him up. Terry additionally got himself bubblegum. He burps a bubble which he had trap himself. Terry floats away and Andy does a golf swing which successfully saved him. There are lots of laughs at every level in The 169-Storey Treehouse, from the worldwide bestselling Treehouse series by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. At the start of the second paragraph, Mr Big Nose will call Andy and Terry to tell them the deadline of their next book as pointed out in The 39-storey Treehouse.
