I recommend the book the 52 -storey tree - house. It is about two boys called Andy and Terry who live in a 52 storey tree house. some of the levels are a watermelon smashing room, a chainsaw juggling level, a make your own pizza parlour, a rocket powered corrupt launcher, a giant hair dryer that is so strong it practically blasts the hair right of your head, a rocking horse racetrack, a haunted house, a wave machine, a life-size snakes and ladders game with real ladders and real snakes, a 24 hou ...more

The 52 story treehouses is a very funny book. It is written by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton. This book is about two boys named Andy and Terry, they go on an adventure to find there manager who was kidnaped by vegetables. I think this is a good book but it is kind of boring. My favorite character is the potato king, he is may favorite because he is funny. My favorite part of the book is when the potato prince kisses Andy and Terry’s friend and she wakes up scared and doesn’t no ...more

The 52-Storey Treehouse is a fantastic book written by Andy Griffiths and illustrations by Terry Denton. It was first published in 2014. The story is about two people called Andy and Terry trying to get along in their 52-storey treehouse. They have exciting adventures wherever weird places they go.
I really thought it was funny when Andy and Terry found a book called “Vegetable Patty” in Mr Big Nose’s office. It was hilarious when a caterpillar ate Andy and Terry’s flying fried egg car. I liked i

Yet another seriously silly addition to the Treehouse series, the 52-Story Treehouse is a bunch of fun wrapped up in a ton of nonsense. Fans of Captain Underpants will adore the antics of Terry and Andy, whose treehouse is constrained only by the limits of their creativity. The plot in this book revolves around the disappearance of Terry and Andy’s publisher, Mr. Big Nose, and the incredibly detailed illustrations add layers of humor to the story. Be prepared, once children start reading this se ...more

It's been a long time since I read a treehouse book - but I enjoyed it as much as the prequels!

The book revolves around the mystery of Andy and Terry's publisher's strange disappearances - and several more mysteries sprouting out from this one. I liked this concept of connected mysteries a lot!

Done with the series. Not finding these books at all interesting. Reading for the kids to complete the series. Just found out there is another one coming in Dept 2015. God damn it!

It was a silly interesting book full of mysteries. It is suitable for kids aged 7 and up and it is a good book for parents to read to younger children. I bet they will really enjoy it.

329 pages. This book is full of adventures with 13 more floors added since the last book. This time it has a watermelon smashing room, chainsaw-juggling level, make-your-own pizza parlor, rocket-powered carrot-launcher, giant hair dryer, rocking horse racetrack, haunted house, wave machine, life-sized snakes and ladders game, non-stop Punch and Judy puppet show, remembering booth and more…Anyway, it all goes off track when a caterpillar eats the fried egg car and Jill is sound asleep, like under ...more

Review from my 7 year old: “This book was really good. My favorite part was at the end when Terry cloned himself and Andy said, ‘Terry, you idiots!’ It was so funny and I couldn’t stop laughing. I can’t pick a favorite of the Treehouse books because they are all really funny. I hope they rebuild that marshmallow machine in the next book.”

If you revel in stupid jokes, think ninja snails are the height of humor, and like books with very few lines of text on a page, then you will love "52-Story Treehouse" and all of its predecessors. The protagonists of this series are Andy and Terry, the actual author and illustrator of each book. They have built a massive treehouse with a floor devoted to almost everything imaginable, like a rocket-powered carrot launcher, a fully stocked pizza parlor, and a rocking horse racetrack. The two boys ...more

What do you get when you have a room of Kindergartners write a story and use the doodles of 13 year old boys as illustrations? You get this book. The story just rambles and is so disconnected that it is difficult to enjoy. Andy and Terry have to finish a book but the publisher is missing. There are evil vegetables, sleeping friends (with a page and a half of just "z" to let us know they sleep for a long time), a flying egg car that gets eaten by a caterpillar, and more. I wanted to like this boo ...more

Andy and Terry live in a 52-story treehouse. With each book in this series, the treehouse expands its floors. Inside is every child's dream home! There is a chainsaw-juggling level, a make-your-own-pizza parlor, a Ninja Snail Training Academy, and so much more. Andy and Terry are along for a wild adventure as they try to solve the mystery of what happened to Mr. Big Nose.

I have to say, I just don't really enjoy these books as much as my daughter does. She thinks they are the greatest thing since sliced bread and I think they're weird and cringe-worthy, so we are meeting in the middle with a three star rating.

These books are creative, I will give them that. You never know what is coming next. There are a few predictable parts that repeat every book though that get a little old. At the end there's several pages of pictures that have already happened in the book w

This book sees Andy (the writer), and his best mate, Terry (the illustrator), trying to get their latest book to the publisher on time. Unfortunately for them but luckily for us, all sorts of events conspire against them. There is vegetable warfare, and magic spells. Also parent-killing vegetables, although it should be pointed out that no parents feature in this book at all. They rarely do in Andy’s madcap adventures. The decision to use themselves as the two main characters in these books is f ...more

Th ebook ws very exciting with a lot of cool illustrations to help you imaging what it would look like. There are many characters and Andy and Terry are adding 13 more storey to their tree how with funny and weird things.
Andy and Terry goes though a mountain and get themselves traped by vegetables that hate them because they was the eat it. How will Andy and Terry get out and escape to publish the book in time?

This is the 4th in the Treehouse series, a delightful and irreverent set that will amuse both your 10 year old (mine continues to insist that I MUST read each one as soon as she is done) and, more than you expect, yourself. Ninja snails? Check. Vegetables cooking humans this time as turnabout? Check. This author has the kind of imagination that kid have and that we imagine kids having... and he captures it on every page. Completely silly and great for kids to feel reading mastery.

I (temporarily) stole this from my little sisters friend. It's easy enough to read alone, and has even more merit if you already know Andy and Terry. Just Macbeth was my favourite. Lot's of pictures and entertainment. Get this for the younger person in your life (or just use them as an excuse to read it yourself) ...more

The review of this book is purely for the audio version of the book. I have the pleasure of reading this book as an audio narration drama format, kurtacy of Virgin Australia inflight entertainment service. I have no particular interest in this book however, the audio narration was great. It was a rather fun read for a short flight.

Overall, this book was crazy. There was always something going on. Terry and Andy eventually end up saving their publisher Mr. Big Nose and their friend Jill from the vegetable kingdom. With the help of their crazy plans Terry and Andy get their book to their publisher on time and they save their friend Jill from an enchanted sleep.
