The 104-Storey Treehouse: 02/13/20

The 104-Storey Treehouse

The 104-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton is the eighth in the Treehouse series. Another thirteen levels have been added and there's more trouble writing the next book.

After the usual goofing around they once again run out of time to write and illustrate their next book. On one of the new levels, there is a two dollar store that sells a joke writing device.

Of course there is a glitch with this plan and the rest of the book is Andy and Terry must quest to get what they need to buy the pen. Kudos, though, to Andy for finally remembering that he is actually an author and can write the book faster than it will take him to acquire the time saving device!

Five stars

This series was huge at my school library.

The problem with the series in the U.S. is that it can take more than a year for the newest volume to be released. Then the text is "Americanized" which kills most of the puns. But the book is so artwork heavy that the original spellings and jokes (if they were drawn by Denton) are still there making it both confusing and obvious that the book has been edited. Since the second volume, I've been buying the original editions.
