The 117-Storey Treehouse: 02/11/21

The 117-Storey Treehouse

The 117-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton is the ninth Treehouse book. This time Terry the illustrator takes a hand at writing the book. What results is utter chaos and some very funny parodies.

In the utter chaos department, it's the Story Police. They don't like certain clichés. For example, "It was all a dream" is right out. It's a sure fire way of summoning the police.

On the parody front, there are a number of popular children's books and authors. Those are the obvious ones. But my all time favorite one is the long running gag that holds together the entire book. It's Terry's version of The Dot and the Line: A Romance in Lower Mathematics by Norton Juster (1963).

There's of course a tenth book, The 130-Storey Treehouse (2020).

Five stars
