The 143-Storey Treehouse with Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton

Andy and Terry are embarking on a (nice, relaxing and not-at-all-chaotic) camping holiday, as they take their treehouse to new levels (13 of them in fact!). Join the beloved madcap duo for this online event to celebrate the release of The 143-Storey Treehouse, the highly-anticipated 11th book in their bestselling series.

The treehouse is bigger and better than ever. The 13 new storeys include a word-o-matic (which knows every word in the whole world!); a recycling depot; a wrecking ball; a too-hard basket; a SUPER BIG STUFF storey; a baked-bean geyser (it erupts on the hour, every hour); a Ye Olde Worlde Historical Village; a fish milkshake level (the penguins love them!); a complaining room; a spooky graveyard (where it's always midnight, even in the day); a toffee apple orchard guarded by a kind scarecrow; a deep, dark dragon's cave with a real live, fire-breathing dragon; and a camping ground where you can just kick back and enjoy a camping holiday – unless you get caught by hobyahs, put in a bag and poked with a stick, that is…

What are you waiting for? Come on up!
