I thought this book was okay because it was funny but not long enough and I have to wait another year for the next one which is so annoying.

It’s funny when Andy gets jealous of Terry and he puts cows poop on his head.

Series: Book 6

Apparently the fastest-selling Australian book, outselling The 65-Storey treehouse and Matthew Reilly. It really is lovely to see a book that appeals to young readers, male and female, does so well.

Sadly, it isn’t my favourite. I found it slow and not as LOL as previous books.

Basically, instead of writing their book they’re making a movie. But Andy feels excluded from the process

I must be honest, I found this book a bit disappointing. This book is one of a series of books about two boys who live in a treehouse which has lots of different and interesting areas of interest all housed on a different story. Each book adds additional storeys, each with its own activity and/or concept for enjoyment by a young boy. This idea was really interesting and fun and we did like it. This particular story is about a movie director, Mr Bigshot, who comes to the treehouse to make a film. ...more
OK so I went to the launch of this book in Melbourne and let me tell you I have NEVER heard such a noise from a crowd, not even at a music gig at Rod Laver arena, these guys are like GODS to the under-10 crowd. (Also, never underestimate the power of a pantomine-style "behind you!!" scenario). Everyone received a (signed) copy of the book on entry and there were so many kids with their nose in it right away. I read my copy a bit later (it is only temporarily my copy, as it is designated for a fr ...more
I am still not entirely sure why I am even reading these books. :P On the one hand they are funny, and I quite love the idea of a treehouse like this (I wouldn't mind having one myself, though I would get rid off most of the animals and the clones). But on the other hand, the characters are just horrible. And horrible towards friends (like how Andy was shunned by both Terry and Jill in this one). I felt really sorry for Andy in this one.
The ending was hilarious though, and I was cheering for An

Were it not for the cows and the courtroom drama, I would have rated this book three stars. The completely artificial separation of Andy and Terry does nothing except make them act completely out of character.

Andy and Terry continue to build more levels to their already amazing treehouse in this whacky and over-the-top story. Andy and Terry decide their story should be made into a movie and get a big shot Hollywood director named Mr. Big Shot. Terry is set to be a big time movie star, while Andy is cut out of the movie and due to some m

Read aloud to the kids - mostly Juliana - during the stay at home order of COVID-19 - we are reading and re-reading the books we have at our home - this book was Daniel's and he suggested that Juliana read it, so she excitedly took him up on it, she starting reading it on her own and then I ended up reading most of it to her. Very awesome!! We love reading.

Now about the book - I'm glad that I got to read this one b/c Daniel has read the whole series (so far, but not the newest ones 104 and 117

As I read this, I was thinking I'd give it 3 stars but I found myself laughing out loud in the latter parts. And that's worth 4 stars in my book.

There's a fine line between just making up random stuff that's just boring nonsense and making up random stuff that's funny. And these authors know how to be on the right side of that line. Just completely ridiculous and inventive enough for me. Like small comments that self-referentially poke fun at the characters or art work - such as an audience memb

Normally, I love these books, but this one was a little tired. It wasn't my favorite in the series. Terry and Andy had a conflict, and it was more focused on movies than creating a new book. It all worked out in the end, of course, but the story just wasn't the same. I definitely prefer it when Andy and Terry work together. I definitely plan on reading the rest of the books in the series, but this one just wasn't my favorite. ...more

This installment of the Treehouse Adventures series will not disappoint its fans. In addition to adding a carwash, a courtroom and an all-ball sports stadium (to name a few), Andy, Terry and Jill find themselves arguing over the movie being filmed about their adventures. When Andy is cut, he discovers that a herd of cows is working to make their own movie using ideas from the Treehouse. As always, detailed pen and ink drawings pair with a ridiculously funny plot for a quick moving read.

Sadly, this book seems to be less adventurous and amazing than the previous treehouse books, as this is about Terry making a movie star for a treehouse movie, but Andy was out of the movie and he was kinda sour about it and just did messy things in the treehouse on his own. Even though Andy and Terry became friends again at the end of the book, I would rather read the adventure that they create together. Hope the 91-storey treehouse would be better.
