The 13-Story Treehouse: 08/25/15
The 13-Story Treehouse by Any Griffiths and Terry Denton is a graphic novel hybrid about an author and his illustrator friend who live together in a 13-story treehouse. They should be writing their next book but are too busy playing and having adventures.
The appeal here is in the illustrations. The treehouse is elaborate and silly. They have self-making beds, a marshmallow machine, a shark tank, and a bowling alley, among other conveniences.
Apparently Griffiths and Denton have written a ton of stuff together. I haven't had the pleasure of reading any of their other collaborations yet. For fans who have, this book offers a fictional look behind the scenes.
This book reads like a behind the scenes episode of Phineas and Ferb (rather like the Tri-Stone Era episode). Imagine if Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Dan Povenmire goofed off too long and then made an episode about it.
