Join Andy and Terry in their wonderfully wild and wacky 104-storey treehouse.

You can throw some refrigerators, make some money with the money-making machine (or honey if you’d prefer-it makes that too), climb the never-ending staircase, have a bunfight, deposit some burps in the burp bank, get totally tangled up in the tangled-up level, or just take some time out and relax in the peaceful sunny meadow full of buttercups, butterflies and bluebirds.

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

My review:

Dynamic Duo Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s hugely successful treehouse series has collected quite the cult following. This is reflected in this latest and the eighth instalment of the series, which has sky rocketed up to the top of the bestselling children’s book charts. A quick scan of the charts also reveals that the previous editions of this series also feature heavily. It is safe to say that The 104-Storey Treehouse is the most anticipated children’s book of 2018.

Further expansion to the popular treehouse, devised by author Andy Griffiths and illustrator Terry Denton, has occurred. The amazing treehouse now stands at 104 storeys tall. This time around the zany adventures continue. Readers can expect to discover joke writing pens, money making machines, bun fights, a massive toothache, a never ending staircase, some burping fun and plenty of bears! Follow Andy, Terry, Jill and the mean Mr Big Nose for yet another wacky adventure. Just try not to get tangled up in the wild escapades of The 104-Storey Treehouse!

There was much excitement in my household as Mr 8 and myself welcomed the brand new treehouse adventure, which marks the eighth in the bestselling series. There is no denying the popularity of these books, readers eagerly await the next issue in the series every year. Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton are a winning combination. With Andy’s finesse in the writing side of things, Terry Denton takes care of the illustrations. These two work in harmony, so what always arises is one fantastical adventure!

What really worked for us with this particular instalment was the use of the jokes included at the bottom of each page. We looked forward to each new joke, they were hilarious! We were pleased to share around and add these jokes to our repertoire. What an extra fun touch to an already funny read!

Content wise, The 104-Storey Treehouse is packed full of slapstick situations, sticky fixes and ludicrous binds that Andy, Terry and Jill must negotiate. It all turns out in the end, despite the looming threat of Mr Big Nose and after quite the adventure. A sneak peek page of the next book, The 117-Storey Treehouse, is sure to incite plenty of excitement for next year’s release.

The 104-Storey Treehouse is guaranteed to be a big hit in classrooms and family homes across the country.
