THE 104-STOREY TREEHOUSE
By ANDY GRIFFITHS & TERRY DENTON MacMillan
Andy and his best friend, Terry, live at the top of a 104-storey treehouse. In between having adventures, they write comic books which they send to their boss, Mr Big Nose. They’re busy working on a joke book but Andy has toothache so he’s struggling to think of anything funny. When they see an advert for a magic pencil called the Joke Writer 2000 they spot a solution to their problem. But they have to go through a whole stack of challenges to raise the money to buy one from Two-Million-Dollar Shop.
I loved this book. It’s clever and funny and I liked the lively illustrations and the dialogue between the various characters. I enjoyed it so much I finished reading it in four days – that’s the shortest time it’s ever taken me to read a chapter book.
It’s the first I’ve read in this series and I’d definitely like to read more. I highly recommend this book for girls and boys aged 9-12.
