As always a great, funny book packed with an outrageous, hilarious and exciting illustrated story - or should that be stories? 65 of them, in a treehouse, and more to come! My friends greatly appreciated the comical story(ies) and eagerly looks forward to the next ones. Thank you for writing them!

Time travelling via wheelie bin. Why not?

Suitably ridiculous. Easy to read. Engaging.

10yo Daughter bought it day of release and read it same day.

9yo nephew (who isn't a good reader) read it in one sitting, and then started over. He discussed the "plot" in great detail with me ('cause I'm the Aunt Who Reads"). He even dressed as Mr Bignose for the school Book Week parade.

Imagination running riot

l bought this book for my 8 year-old daughter, who gives it 5 stars and said she would give it a billion stars if she could. She has read nearly every book by these authors and thinks this is the best so far. She particularly likes the news feed on every page.
Funny book. My kids loved it. They are hanging out to read the next in the series, but until it is released they are determined to read all the ones we have missed.

This is such a great book to read, it is fantasy, action and is cartoon. It’s good for 10nyear olds and older because it’s fun and an easy read. This book is part of a series by Andy Griffin and the characters add 13 stories to their tree house every book. I loved this book. This book is funny, happy, exciting and a page turner. I can’t exactly remember the ending but as far as I can remember it is a good ending as it leads onto the next book in the series sort of. I would definitely recommend t ...more

This one is probably my favourite treehouse book so far. I liked how Andy and Terry traveled to different times and saw themselves in the past and future.

This book is very creative with some history thrown in for god measure...
characters was well described as funny and do crazy things like they travelled in time in a rubbish bin. The theme is friendship between Terry and Andy that live in a treehouse.

Go on a journey with Terry and Andy as they show you around their 65 storey treehouse with a pet grooming salon, a time machine and many more rooms to come. This book is full of adventure and craziness as Andy And Terry show you around their treehouse and take you back in time in their "time machine". The 65 Storey Treehouse By Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton was published on the 16 of August 2015. The novel is the fish instalment of the book series. Since then three more books ha ...more

Who, wouldn’t want to build a tree house that has 65 levels? And one that includes an Ant house on one level, a pool of man-eating sharks on another and a sinking sand level they use as an office as they work of floatation shoes?

This book is a hilarious romp through the imagination of two men who retain their childlike view of the world. Comic book style illustrations enhance the madcap adventures of Terry and Andy when they discover that the ants can make themselves into a giant foot and stomp

Yet another bunch of floors for this amazing and intriguing tree house designed and stocked by two tween-aged boys with awesome imaginations.

My students love this series, so I wanted to see what I was missing. This is not my cup of tea, but I did laugh out loud on a couple of the antics that occur in the books I read. This book will be of interest to your students who like graphic novels, I expect. The chapters are filled with animations that connect to the story itself, a tree house rife with

Caleb Haske (age 6): "This story was a very good story, and I have very good reasons for it. I have read all of the books before this except for The Thirteen Story Treehouse. So now you might remember Andy and Terry. Now they're having a time travelling adventure but it went a little bit off course. They went flying through time - literally. They took stops at 650 million B.C., 65 million B.C., 65,000 B.C., 650 B.C., 65 B.C., 65,000 A.D., and 650 million A.D. Find more details out in the book." ...more

This is a fun book to read because there are lot of interesting thing to read. There are many books in this series. It started with 13 storeys and each new book adds 13 more storeys. In October 2018, there will be a new book with 104 storeys. This is an adventurous book because the tree house is so big and has a lot of stages. My favourite one is the chainsaw flipping because Terry chops off his leg and arm. Why did they make such a dangerous place?

This is a wonderful book for kids that don't really enjoy reading. It shouldn't take long for them to read and look through. The illustrations are beautiful and really catch their attention. My daughter loved it, she read it within an hour or two. The pictures will keep their attention, and they may just learn a thing or two. ...more

Melanie was starting to lose interest in this edition and she did not seem to enjoy it as much as the previous books. She responded to it like listening to it was a chore. I actually enjoyed the historical references.... but it still remained silly and zany (to much so for me to like it). It makes me feel like the Military Officer telling Monty Pythons Flying Circus to not be so silly.

13 more storeys of fun and a new character Inspector Bubblewrap in this book, which is about Andy, Terry and Inspector Bubblewrap traveling back in time wishing to get a permit to stop the Treehouse from being demolished. But the trio ended up in different eras in the past and future, having a lot of hilarious moments messing up with the history.

This series was my favorite series when I was younger. It made me feel like I wanted to read more than the reading goal because it was so interesting and I never got bored. I still like to read series books because I like how after the first book the story keeps going. This book helps me today because I have to make some of the decisions that the character made.
Neville Ridley-smith
This one only gets 3 stars from me.

The building inspection and time machine were a good framing device for the story. And there was lots of appropriate silliness.

However I didn't feel there was anything particularly laugh-out-loud worthy or clever. And I found the Tree-NN updates down the bottom fairly pointless.

So, yeah, not up to usual standard.

Loved it. I thought it was one of the most amazing books I have ever read. My favorite character is the illustrator Terry Denton, he is so funny and my other favorite character is the author Andy Griffiths because he always calls Terry a idiot and gets mad a lot.

You know I actually liked this a lot more than the previous books. The time travel shenanigans played well, the humour worked and I liked Inspector Bubblewrap. Plus, you’ve got to admire the balls to work in HG Wells as a character and peer to the authors.
