Doc The 13-Story Treehouse On an afternoon when I was incredibly tired and just had no drive to pick up the next novel in my reading pile, I decided I needed a light read and picked this one up. It was just what I needed at the time! This was wildly funny and reading it just didn’t take much thought at all. I breezed through it in about a half an hour (which made me feel like I accomplished something huge on an otherwise unproductive day, so brownie points there) and had so much fun in the process. Andy and Terry live in the most kick-butt treehouse ever thought up. I mean, this place is complete with a bowling alley, full bathroom, underground laboratory and even a shark tank. With the pressure of their publisher on their backs to finish their next novel, Andy and Terry are trying to buckle down and get their work done but there are just distractions everywhere. As you can tell, there isn’t a whole bunch of realism here, it’s an escapism tale and brings the laughs. Terry & Andy are pretty much opposites of each other. While Andy is much more goal oriented and spends much of the novel simply going along with Terry so he can finally get him settled down to work, Terry is just everywhere. This guy had the attention span of a fish! He could not sit down and concentrate on anything. I had hoped that there would be a message there about how in life it is important to buckle down at times and get the task at hand done, but it ended up that Terry's zaniness payed off and helped the cause. The illustrations are rich and plentiful. Some pages didn’t even have words and just featured funny comic strip like doodles for the reader to zoom through. I actually found myself staring at the pictures for much longer than I spent really reading the novel. Upon finishing my 5 year old daughter came up and flipped through the book while I described the story for her and I basically ended up reading it twice. The second time around she laughed even harder than I had. There isn’t much of a lesson to be learned here but I did enjoy watching Andy and Terry get up to random shenanigans and realize that the best stories come from every day life. From flying catnaries to gorillas hunting oversized bananas and sea monsters disguised as gorgeous mermaids this hilarious middle grade novel holds nothing back and it pays off in the end. This is middle grade for a younger audience, I would say 5-10, and it’s perfect for exactly who it is aimed at. I think this is one that my kids and I will be reading a few times in the future.

Popular Kindle The 13-Story Treehouse This is a terrific book, especially for young boys who mistakenly think that they don't like to read. It's also a nice treat for an adult who likes to read with kids. The book is silly, funny, and interesting from beginning to end, and the illustrations add to the excitement. I read this book with one of my 4th grade students, and he was enthralled. I had that student write a letter to the author and illustrator about how much he enjoyed the book, and he received a hand-written note and a signed copy of the Australian version of the new book. That experience really has my student hooked on reading now! I was motivated to pre-order the 26 Story Tree House due out in April 2014 and eagerly await each new book. I've also bought several copies for the kids in my family for Christmas.

  3. Mijn kinderen zijn echt super fan van deze serie Mijn oudste dochter heeft ze allemaal gelezen De jongste van 8 jaar is nu net in de tweede bezig Dus ik dacht eens kijken waarom ze zo n fan zijn Het is een heerlijk boek Super grappig verhaal met super grappige plaatjes Je gaat echt als een speer door het boek heen Ik moet zelfs bekennen dat ik af en toe zat te gniffelen Echt een aanrader voor kinderen.


  4. First and foremost, we should admit that this book was not written for me It was written for kids and me not liking it really only means that I don t fall into the demographic that it was aimed at I bought this book for my nephew s birthday, though, and I wanted to know what I was giving him after the bookstore ladies suggested it to me.Now that we ve gotten my disclaimer out of the way, I still have a few complaints about the book 1 It might be old fashioned of me, but I think that books for ki [...]



  5. Read this with my eldest son and we were laughing out loud at the silliness of these two characters and what they got up to in the book Love read a longs with my boys.


  6. A perfectly silly book series of 3, I believe for that semi reluctant Summer reader who is an 8 9 year old boy and needs to get back into school mode Half book half comic book lots of pictures this is just the ticket to rekindle interest Thumbs up from my Grandson who of course exchanges reading time for screen time 4 stars


  7. I work part time in a well known booksellers and read this as part of research to be able to make recommendations in children s books.This was a funny read and I believe the whole series to be similar , good illustrations and light hearted for younger readers



  8. Dit slaat helemaal nergens op en is supergrappig Heel leuk kinderboek.Maar niet meer dan dat, het is niet zoals bij sommige andere kinderboeken dat er nog een verhaallijn achter zit Dit is gewoon echt alleen grappig Dat mag soms ook en is ook goed en kan er voor zorgen dat kinderen wel blijven lezen, maar ik snap het bezwaar van ouders ook wel, dat het niet echt aanvoelt als een boek ik had m zelf binnen 3 kwartier uit en hij is best dik, maar het zijn gewon echt meer tekeningen dan tekst en dat [...]


  9. The cover and title of this book are so promising, but the story was quite a disappointment Two guys live in a really cool treehouse and have some really cool things, but after the tour in the first few pages, it s pretty much a book about two guys who are supposed to be writing a book, which ends up being the book we are now reading A bit too meta for the audience, but not even in an interesting way Predictable, simplistic, and read like a slacker s attempt at an essay for school that was put o [...]


  10. I read this book to my 6 1 2 year old son Whilst I thought some parts of the story were over his head and some of the language not appropriate, we really enjoyed it and loved all the twists and turns in the day of a life of Andy and Terry living in a 13 Storey Treehouse We loved how the cat got painted yellow and turned into a canary and flew away and also how the sea monkeys which weren t sea monkeys turn into a mermaidia and then into a sea monster A recommended read Thanks to Netgalley for th [...]


  11. This book was awesome I really loved how the two main characters, Andy and Terry, are so different but seem to get along so well They really do cause alot of trouble and some how seem to get out of it I cannot wait to read the others in the series.


  12. Review by Jack, age 6.5It was excellent, it was very, very, very good.It was awesome because it had man eating sharks and a shark nearly ate Terry Terry accidently threw Andy s head in the bowling alley After they ate too many marshmallows they drank too much lemonade from the lemonade fountain.Their treehouse is awesome because it looked small from the outside but is big on the inside There was a gorilla and a yellow canary cat with a whole army of yellow canary cats who saved Andy and Terry Th [...]


  13. The story The 13 Storey Treehouse is an absoultely fabulous book for all ages.Join Andy and Terry as they join their adventures in their Treehouse Their are cases of a flying cat, a missing cat, the big red nose, the drawing competition, the monster mermaid, the big bubble, the adventures of Superfinger and plenty Very humorous with plenty of fun cartoons Wouldn t you love to join Andy and Terry in a 13 Storey Treehouse Anything can happenin the treehouse Drinking from a lemonade fountain to a [...]


  14. Andy and Terry live in the most awesome tree house you ever saw First of all it has 13 stories complete with a bowling alley, shark tank, lemonade fountain, game room and a see through swimming pool.The 2 boys write children s books and their next book is due to the publisher tomorrow and they haven t even started it yet Andy writes the words and Terry illustrates the pictures But lately they have been too distracted with turning their neighbor s cat into a canary, hatching sea monkeys that turn [...]


  15. This book happened around the time I gave up stuffing The Secret Seven down my son s throat I mean, I read them, why wouldn t he It dawned on me that I had a Reluctant Reader on my hands So imagine my amazement when he not only took it to bed with him, he asked for The 26 Storey Treehouse over and over again I resisted the Wimpy Kid Wave because I picked it up once, and found it rather rude and disrespectful to adults This book is actually in the same genre but it had my sister and I in stitches [...]


  16. Este livro genial Gostei da hist ria, dos desenhos, das perip cias mais sem sentido de sempre mas que no fim se interligam todas e fazem deste livro um dos mais divertidos que j li no g nero infanto juvenil.Recomendo muito a crian as e a adultos que ainda tem uma crian a dentro de si estou muito po tica hoje.


  17. Drivel.Nonsense.Put Capt Underpants in the penthouse and then take the elevator down to the basement and you will find Andy and Terry in their swanky treehouse 2 grown menliving in a 13 story treehouse which I have to admit is pretty awesome tell a lie and a truth and the truth cancels out the lie right get married by exchanging a kiss which illustrator Terry does with a mermaid 1 hungry sea monster posing as a mermaida monkey invasion that trashes the placea cat painted yellow who sprouts wings [...]


  18. Fun and enjoyable I don t think it is as good as The 26 Storey Treehouse I think this is because that book had an overall story linking the smaller stories together, whereas this one did not so much Made me laugh aloud at a certain reference to Crocodile Dundee D


  19. Loved it My boys would hang out for each new chapter at night Funny and often my boys would ask is this book really for kids as some of it was a bit violent in a funny weird way Now we are looking for another one in the series that we have not read.




  20. I realized that I am not the target demographic for these books so the fact that I, a 26 year old woman, did not enjoy it is irrelevant The drawings are cute but the story is nothing.But if Roald Dahl can make a good children s book that can be enjoyed by all ages, then it s not so bad to want a good children s book is it



  21. Author Andy GriffithsIllustrator Terry DentonFirst book about The Treehouse Followed by The 26 Storey Treehouse and 39 Storey Treehouse to be released.We started with the 26 Storey, and while we felt no need to read 13 Storey, we enjoyed 26 so much we had to pick it up The narration and illustrations appeal to both the teen and the early school er, as well as tickling my funny bone It s such off the wall humour, without devolving to slapstick, coarse language, and toilet humour, it makes us laug [...]


  22. Andy and Terry live in a 13 story treehouse When not goofing off in the treehouse s bowling alley, see through swimming pool, lemonade fountain, and top secret underground laboratory, they write and illustrate books together The 13 Story Treehouse tells the hilarious story of all the ridiculous things that happen to them while trying to come up with ideas for their newest book To give you an idea of the type of absurdity to expect, one memorable scene shows Andy and Terry debating whether painti [...]


  23. from Luke This book, written by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton, is a great introduction for kids into the world of chapter books Though it looks rather large at 239 pages, they are full of illustrations, and there is never a page filled solely with words If your 7 12 year old is interested in fantastic stories of kids living on their own in a world filled with lemonade fountains, catnaries , automatic marshmallow cannons and sea monsters, this is the book for them



  24. it was reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaly cool especially when it was the end this is how many stars i give it 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 and it continues one million times hey what are all those periods doing
