Wheeler Kids: Andy Griffiths

Listen to Wheeler Kids: Andy Griffiths

If you’re an Australian kid of a certain age (or a parent of one), you’ll already know who Andy Griffiths is. He’s a master of comic novels, silly scenarios and kooky characters – and a man who’s more than fulfilled his mission to make reading fun for even the most reluctant of readers.

He stopped in to Deakin Edge to talk about the latest in his mega-bestselling Treehouse series, created with longtime partner in entertainment, illustrator Terry Denton. The ever-expanding treehouse has gained a watermelon-smashing level, a life-size snakes and ladders game (with real ladders and real snakes) and more – and there’s a BIG mystery to solve.

Be entertained and get eager to read with this consummate storyteller – and Australian icon.

For children aged 6 – 12 years. Introduction by Lachlann Carter of 100 Story Building.
