If you're like most readers, you're probably wondering just how Andy and Terry met. Well, it's a long story, but a pretty exciting one, and it's mostly true! Come on up, choose a hammock, and they'll tell you all about it (just don't go in the maze they're still ironing out a few bugs...).

Loved it! This book would be great for kids who can read but don't have a big attention span. It looks like a novel but most of the page space is occupied by pictures. I thought the ice cream flavours (78!) were fabulous!
Author: Andy Griffiths - Australian author of over 20 books concentrating on nonsense with a lot of child appeal.
Illustrator: Terry Denton - Australian author and illustrator has a very popular partnership with Griffiths, but has illustrated books for others including Paul Jennings, Mem Fox and Gillian Rubinstein.

(Apparently this is the second book about the Treehouse - "The 13-Storey Treehouse" was published in 2011. We didn't feel any loss having read "26 Storey Treehouse" first).

After reading the first book in the series the second book came by as if by magic. Another humorous book by Andy Griffiths full of lemonade fountains, giant bowling alleys and millions of flavours of scrumptious ice cream.

Read with Master Seven. I just love these books because they are helping him discover the joys of a chapter book!

I read this book (and The 13-Storey Treehouse) with my son. He had just turned five and the book was so thoroughly hilarious to both him and me. As was the case with The 13-Storey Treehouse, he felt somewhat uneasy about certain plot points (the mermaid and such). The book is marketed for older kids, but when my boy found it, there was no leaving Barnes and Noble without it. On the other hand, it is simply stunning how funny spelling errors are at this age. I am not sure older kids would find it ...more

26-Storey Treehouse

The winning team combination of whacky words from Griffiths, and laugh aloud cartoon black line drawings from Denton, have once again produced the magic we have come to expect from this duo.
In this sequel to the highly popular 13 Storey Treehouse, we find that there have been a few modifications to the already outlandish structure. There’s ordinary additions like a skate ramp and a dodgem car arena, but there are also added extras like the maze of doom and an ice-cream servin

Another entry into the illustrated chapter books, with black line drawings that interpret the text, and it did not grab me. With it's brightly colored cover, a lot of students will grab this. I wonder if they'll be disappointed that the inside has no color. Why do publishers do that?? (Please don't tell me, though...)
Chapter One reminds me of "Where's Waldo?" and students could find each 'room' on the large, two page drawing of the treehouse.

This sequel to The 13-Story Treehouse tells the story of each of the main characters and how they all met. Most of it’s even true! But it’s not that straight forward either because emergencies keep happening, like the sharks in the treehouse’s shark pool eating Terry’s underpants and getting very sick. Thank goodness that Jill can come over and try to have them feeling snappy again soon. Then of course no story is complete without a villain and Captain Woodenhead, the evil pirate makes a great o ...more

This book is a recommendation for years 4 to years 7. For some students this is an easy book to read but my aim is to give students who are still struggling an opportunity to keep on par with the others who are on larger novels. This novel is rather thick but is filled with illustrations to help students relate to the events in the story. This book helps to build confidence to readers who are still not reaching their full potential. It is an achievable novel to read because of the many illustrat ...more

This one is definitely little boy humor. Meaning poop is involved but thankfully the story is not quite as blatant as I'm being. I did mutter to myself "eewwww, that's disgusting..." once or twice. I couldn't stop thinking about how boys would probably read this book and giggle (or whatever the boy equivalent is) and force their friends to read it after. Lots of unrealistically funny things go on (ok, I'll admit I did laugh out loud in some parts) and although I didn't think I'd like this book v ...more

het is een raar boek, over 2 jongens met een boomhut van 26 verdiepingen. Het is best grappig. Het is een soort strip-boek want er staan heel veel plaatjes in. Het is een boek waarin wordt verteld dat hij dat boek gaat schrijven. En er wordt uitgelegd hoe die 2 jongens elkaar leerde kennen, en over piraten.
My copy is An ARC I received from a parent. It's the story of how Andy and Terry, the author and illustrator "met". It's full of crazy adventures and laugh out loud fun. Their 26-story tree house includes a bumper car game, shark tank and ice rink. My favorite is the anti-gravity chamber and the automatic marshmallow machine that shoots marshmallows into your mouth. Now add some rowdy pirates and you have a book I know a lot of my students will enjoy. It's written in a chapter book format with g ...more

I found _The 13-Storey Treehouse_ for my kids last summer, and they have been bugging me to find this sequel ever since. I finally got it from the library for them, and they each plowed through it immediately (and were delighted that it appears there will be a 39-Storey Treehouse some day). My 9 year old daughter said that I "had to read it." :-)

So I did. It's certainly geared for kids. It's just the right kind of silly to appeal completely. Did it do a lot for me? Well... no. But it wasn't writ

I thought this was even better than the first book. And others seem to agree with me, because there are 26 more stories coming in two more sequels. I appreciate the little things like the infinite page 326. Great stuff in here. There is enough humor in this series to make it interesting beyond any specific reading level. (I can say that because I was interested and might be past the reading level of this book.) This is great if you are 7 or 8 or if you need a quick break from the deep thoughts o ...more

This book was a good book ,the whole series is great this is a good book and series to read I think if you read it your will like it.
Vervolg op de waanzinnige boomhut van 13 verdiepingen. Heerlijk fantasieboek vol gekke tekeningen en ondanks de onzin toch weer een knap boeiend verhaal waarin we ontdekken hoe Andy, Terry en Jill elkaar hebben ontmoet. Jammer alleen dat bij de 78 smaken ijs de vette vis 2x voorkomt (foutje van de vertaler?) en ook zit er volgens mij een foutje bij de omzwervingen van het Houten Hoofd. Dat is jammer omdat verder elk detail in het verhaal en de tekeningen met elkaar kloppen en er geen losse verha ...more

This book is about two friends named Andy and Terry and they make books with each other in the past, but will they be in time to get their new book to their publisher, mr. Big Nose? If you want the answer then you should read The 26 Story Treehouse.

The book was really funny!!!!! The characters had some crazy story to tell. I would suggest the book to everyone.

This book is poorly written, with the characters not very well drawn out. It does not incorporate a lot of different elements that a treehouse should have, but does add in completely unrelated elements that would definitely not fit in a tree and I do not understand how the main characters would find abandoned on a beach, such as a bumper-car arena, a shark tank, a huge maze, and a marshmallow machine. By adding these elements, there is no more room for talking about sleeping, bedrooms, kitchens, ...more

Shelves: abandoned, children-s
picture-heavy chapter books (for kids who apparently won't pick up a book if there are too many words in it). I easily blew through 60 pages but didn't find the content all that funny or interesting. It may do better with an audience of kids (who have more active imaginations than I) and I can probably recommend it easily enough to readers who are looking for a quick read (Griffiths books practically sell themselves, with titles like _The Day My Butt Went Psycho_. It is a hefty 343 pages so begi ...more

Andy and Terry have added 13 more storeys to their treehouse including an anti-gravity chamber, an ATM Automatic tattoo machine, an ice cream parlour with Edward Scooperhands and a maze of doom no-one has ever returned from.
The story begins with sick sharks because Terry tried to wash his underpants in the tanks and the sharks ended up eating them. While Jill tries to fix them Andy and Terry begin telling the story how they met

This book is jam packed with more hilarious illustrations, plenty of

This book is just as hilarious as the 13-Storey Treehouse, although it may be a little scary for younger children. I would recommend that an adult read it first to make sure that the themes are suitable for the individual child. The drawings and the story line motivate struggling readers to engage in the process. Also, I'm not saying that it's a "boy's book," but it is nice to be able to offer something other than sports stories that appeal to boys. This is a wacky adventure tale that will make ...more

The 26-Storey Treehouse is a children's book written by Andy Griffiths, illustrated by Terry Denton, and the audiobook is narrated by Stig Wemyss. Both formats have something to recommend them, but I will save that for the end of the review. It is also the sequel to The 13-Storey Treehouse, and while it is more fun to read in order, it is not necessary. The action and zaniness come through just fine without having read the previous book.

Story of Andy, Terry, and Jill. Goes through the stories of how Andy and Terry became friends and ended up living together in an kid's wonder world of a tree house. In this book they must battle a pirate from their past while still getting their new book to their publisher on time. Good thing Jill, their animal-loving friend, is around to help them.

A few gross parts, few words on page, comics, lots of illustrations, addresses reader as a friend

Much more fun than part three. 3,5 - 4 stars.
Unlike in some comments below, I would like to state children do need an attention span to follow the story, since it develops with an incredible speed and different parts of the tale connect to each other in a later stage. Most important: the fantasy at work. Much better than all those Dutch books for youths that address problem upon problem. Brrr. They're too serious. Hand your children a(n exciting) break.

This book is just so hilarious, and really addictive. I love the innovative rides, problems and solutions. My favourite machine from this book was the ice cream parlour. It had lots of flavours, e.g. Invisible, bacon and no egg, no bacon no egg and much more DISGUSTING flavours. However, I recommend you should read this book, this book helps u to become an innovative thinker!
Another goofy book of antics following The 13-Story Treehouse. This time, Andy is bent on telling the story of how he and Terry met, but keeps getting interrupted with issues like sharks in medical crisis from having eaten Terry's dirty underpants (turns out that doing your laundry involves a lot more than putting dirty clothes in gurgling water) resulting in open-shark surgery. Interspersed is the story of how Andy and Terry met, in spite of Terry's overprotective parents and Andy's unwillingne ...more
