Title : The 117- Storey Treehouse

Author : Andy Griffiths and Terry Dentons

Genre : Middle Grade Graphic Novel

Off late I have been getting my hands on quite a few Graphic Novels and I must say my picks have been really diverse and interesting. Yesterday, it was about a humorous take on life with Trust No Aunty, today it is about Middle Grade Fantasy 'The 117-Storey Treehouse'.

Blurb :

Andy and Terry have added another thirteen levels of crazy fun to their every-growing treehouse. They've got a

I read this whole book in about 45 mins. I'm the kind of person who'd read anything, even a picture book. I just take pleasure in reading.

This is a book for kids of about 7-11 year old. It made me wish I had a cousin/nephew to give it to because I bet they'd love it. I got reminded of the times I used to read fables and comics as a child at the opthalmologist's. It's very imaginative and entertaining as Terry, Andy and Jill are struggling to deliver a manuscript for

Recommends it for: Grades 4-5
371 pages. This episode had me laughing all the through! The author and illustrator are very gifted in humor and create more and more layers of fun in their wacky treehouse. This time there are tiny horses, a waiting room, an underwear museum and they are pursued by the story police after Terry tries to write the story. Kids will love this one! I think it gets better and better. I can’t wait for another addition to the treehouse fun! Highly recommended for Grades 4-5.

Next in this series. Love the plays on several famous kids books and authors, Maurice Sendak, Beatrice Potter, Dr. Seuss.
The humor remains as crazy as ever.

I loved this book so much cant believe that there already on 117 love it so much please hurry up i have got all the books best auther and illustrator ever!
That treehouse just keeps getting larger and larger, adding several stories with each book. I can see why this series would be popular with intermediate or middle grade readers since it's a fast read, but also because it contains clever references to other books and plenty of humor. In this installment, number nine in the series, Terry decides that it's time for him to write a book instead of just providing the illustrations. The only problem is that he's stuck for inspiration. Eventually, he ...more
Fans of the 13-Story Treehouse illustrated chapter book series will be clamoring to see what the next thirteen stories of the treehouse hold in store for young Andy and Terry in this ninth installment of the super-silly series, while those new to the series can still delight in the absurdity of this story as a stand-alone tale. The book follows their tried-and-true formula, which involves treehouse-dwelling Andy and Terry, accompanied by their animal-loving friend Jill, running around in ...more

I read Melanie, Andy Griffiths latest journey into children’s absurdity. It certainly held her interest. At the core or it was Terry’s attempt to be a narrator leading to the attention of the stern “Story Police” and being sentenced to a billion years in jail.

“Reading too much into it Evan” found the filing monster a warning against idenitarians who want to classify everyone by type. Jill, Andy, and Terry point our we have infinite identities, thus confusing the filing monster..... All I could
I actually pretty hate it. They made another one called Terry's dumb dot story and it was exactly the same inside this book. I mean really, I wasted my money to buy this book. They repeat same things in the book so people already now what's going to happen. I couldn't wait till I was about finish reading it.

a quote i love from this book is "illustrators can narrate too!"

i think the reader is trying to teach us that no matter what people say if we just believe in ourselves we can acheive anything

in my opinion this book is great, its fun, cheerful and full of joy.

There were too many recycled jokes, but the general absurdity + literary references made up for it. The picture book format combined w novelistic length is an unexpectedly winning combo.

The treehouse books are predictable, but silly enough that they still work. I'd like to see them try something new, though.

These are really not bad for sharing between an adult and a child because many of the jokes will be funnier to adults--my kids didn't really catch the joke about Beatrix "Potty," for instance.

Good illustrations...makes a kid feel good to read such a long book in one sitting...story is a bit lacking though.

I think the editors are cheating. If the stories are dumb, than they must be children stories. And the dumber the story, the younger the children.

The drawings aren't any better.
