The 91-Storey Treehouse: 07/18/19
The 91-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton is the seventh in the Treehouse series. It's a new book deadline but the two are one again too busy exploring their thirteen new stories.
Mr. Bignose, their publisher, usually harangues them to finish their book on time. This book, however, his wife has his attention. So Andy and Terry are stuck baby sitting their publisher's children.
There's always some new feature of the treehouse that takes the two on their tangential adventure. In this case it's a whirlpool. It takes them into the depths well beyond the roots of their tree and into a huge ocean. The tree seems to work much as the staircase in Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire, just with fewer consequences.
While puns happen throughout the book, they are most concentrated in the underwater sequence. There is a delightfully ridiculous nod to the Yellow Submarine.
This book captured the thematic silliness of the earlier books in the series. The eighth book is The 104th Storey Treehouse (2018).

Your local public library might have them. Ours does.
