Andy Griffiths: Alice Springs

If you’re a kid with an interest in zombie bums, not-very-merry merry-go-rounds, ninja snail training academies, gorillagrams or exploding butterflies, you already know who Andy Griffiths is. And if you don’t, here’s your chance to find out.

Probably the most popular – and certainly the silliest – children’s author in Australia, Andy is best known for the Just series, the Treehouse books, the Bum series … and for causing you to convulse with laughter.

Andy is also a passionate advocate for literacy and a man whose mission is to make reading fun for even the most reluctant readers.

What’s Andy been up to lately? He’s been building his treehouse, and this time it’s grown to a whopping 65 storeys! Bring your ice-cream serving robots and rocket-powered carrot-launchers along for the ride as Andy Griffiths swings by to talk about The 65 Storey Treehouse, books … and bums.

For children aged 6 to 12 years.

Presented in partnership with Red Hot Arts Central Australia, Alice Desert Festival.
