Waterstones Says

With its marshmallow machine and boxing elephant known as the Trunkinator, join Andy and Terry on a side-splittingly surreal tour around their spectacular treehouse.

The 13-Storey Treehouse is the first book in Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton's wacky treehouse adventures, where the laugh-out-loud story is told through a combination of text and fantastic cartoon-style illustrations.

Andy and Terry live in the WORLD'S BEST treehouse! It's got a giant catapult, a secret underground laboratory, a tank of man-eating sharks and a marshmallow machine that follows you around and shoots marshmallows into your mouth whenever you're hungry! Just watch out for the flying cats, or the mermaids, or the sea monsters pretending to be mermaids, or the giant mutant mermaid sea monster... oh, and, whatever you do, don't get trapped in a burp-gas-filled bubble!

Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up!

MEDIA REVIEWS

The kind of book I would have loved as a kid - Tom Fletcher, author of The Christmasaurus

With its slapstick humour, brilliant absurdities and some bonus puzzles to solve at the back of the book, The 13-Storey Treehouse is the best 'tall story' you'll read this year! - Lancashire Evening Post

Aanarchic absurdity at its best . . . 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. - Publishers Weekly

Full of crazy, funny pictures, which will make you laugh . . . Extremely enjoyable, very funny and easy to read! - SophieStarlight, Guardian.com

Especially good for reluctant readers as it is heavily illustrated and VERY funny . . . This really is the coolest treehouse ever! - Angels & Urchins

Packed with cartoons and craziness - Sunday Express

My son loved the cartoon images, the great imagination and has since brought the next book in the series. - Toppsta Reviewer

This book is about friends Andy and a Terry that live in a really cool 13-storey treehouse, with cool things like a bowling alley, games room and secret lab. - Toppsta Reviewer

I thought that this book was funny because of the flying cats. This book had lots of animals in it. - Toppsta Reviewer

My son absolutely adores this whole series of books. They are hilariously funny but so imaginative and creative. I've recommended them to so many people and haven't yet found a child who doesn't love them. This first book sets the scene with Andy and Terry - the characters and authors/illustrators - living in a treehouse with 13 stories who are meant to be writing a book but keep getting distracted by an endless stream of hilarious madness. - Toppsta Reviewer

Having read The 78-Storey Treehouse and lived it we requested this from the library.My son loves these books and studies the illustrations which adorn every page.He finds the stories very funny and likes that it has the same characters (the author and illustrator!!)Definitely recommend this book - and we are now moving on to another in the series from the library! - Toppsta Reviewer

My son: I like this book because of the funny pictures.Mum: My son has been reading this aloud to me. Whilst there are over two hundred pages to this book, a lot of it is taken up with humorous black and white illustrations. - Toppsta Reviewer

It's funny, hugely imaginative and has LOTS of pictures. What child would not want a treehouse with see-through swimming pool, lemonade fountain, games room, bowling alley and marshmallow machine? - Toppsta Reviewer

I liked this book as it was funny, adventures and most importantly troublesome.Andy and Terry were hilariously brilliant. - Toppsta Reviewer

Brilliant series and if you haven't read them yet why not? Start at the beginning and work through them all. Laugh out loud funny and I love reading about all the things they have in their treehouse. - Toppsta Reviewer

My son read this book solidly in one day. - Toppsta Reviewer

This is silly and fun and a great book to encourage of love of reading in young children. - Toppsta Reviewer

My daughter and i loved this book - a fulfilled adventure about two writers trying to find inspiration for their next book. The story follows them through all the mishaps on the way!! Full of fantastic, crazy illustrations throughout. - Toppsta Reviewer

Read to my Year 3 class (30 children, ages 7-8) who all love Diaries of a Wimpy Kid and Tom Gates. (This book initially reminded me of these due to the mixture of text and drawings) They really enjoyed the quirky storyline and bizarre sense of humour running throughout. - Toppsta Reviewer

I read this book easily without any help and my mum has already ordered The 26-Storey Treehouse! - Toppsta Reviewer
