Selling more books in its first week upon release than any other Australian book ever is this sixth book in Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s Treehouse story – a spectacular result, without a doubt.

Adding a new thirteen levels to the ever-growing eponymous tree, Andy & Terry now have a drive-through car wash, a combining machine, a scribbletorium, a sports stadium, Andyland & Terrytown, a high-security potato chip storage facility, and an open-air movie theatre to explore.

Chock-full of the duo’s trademark zany adventures and boosted by Denton’s intricate illustrations (which are as involved as the plot and lots of fun to pore over), as the duo try to write a movie and dodge out for spy cows, which are (spoilers) on every page (great for the kids to try and find)!

Excellent for age seven and above and irrefutably responsible for getting many youngsters into books, even reluctant readers, the Treehouse series continues to be admirable and revolutionary, especially in this country.
