MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK
THE 52-STORY TREEHOUSE
Hi, my name is Andy.
This is my friend Terry.
We live in a tree.
Well, when I say “tree,” I mean treehouse. And when I say “treehouse,” I don’t just mean any old treehouse—I mean a 52-story treehouse!
(It used to be a 39-story treehouse, but we’ve added another 13 stories.)
So what are you waiting for?
Come on up!
We’ve added a watermelon-smashing room,
a chainsaw-juggling level,
a make-your-own-pizza parlor,
a rocket-powered carrot-launcher,
a giant hair dryer that is so strong it practically blasts the hair right off 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-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, nonstop Punch and Judy puppet show,
a remembering booth to help us remember important stuff we might have forgotten,
a Ninja Snail Training Academy (Terry’s idea, not mine),
and a high-tech detective agency, which has all the latest high-tech detective technology, like a complete set of magnifying glasses (including one so small that you need another magnifying glass to see it), a hot-donut vending machine …
and a Disguise-o-matic 5000, which has a disguise for every occasion!
As well as being our home, the treehouse is also where we make books together. I write the words and Terry draws the pictures.
As you can see, we’ve been doing this for quite a while now.
Life in the treehouse isn’t always easy, of course,
but one thing is for sure …
it’s never dull!
