    This is a terrific book, especially for young boys who mistakenly think that they don't like to read. It's also a nice treat for an adult who likes to read with kids. The book is silly, funny, and interesting from beginning to end, and the illustrations add to the excitement. I read this book with one of my 4th grade students, and he was enthralled.

I read this book with one of my 4th grade students, and he was enthralled. I had that student write a letter to the author and illustrator about how much he enjoyed the book, and he received a hand-written note and a signed copy of the Australian version of the new book. That experience really has my student hooked on reading now! I was motivated to pre-order the 26 Story Tree House due out in April 2014 and eagerly await each new book. I've also bought several copies for the kids in my family for Christmas.

    First and foremost, we should admit that this book was not written for me.

It was written for kids and me not liking it really only means that I don't fall into the demographic that it was aimed at. I bought this book for my nephew's birthday, though, and I wanted to know what I was giving him after the bookstore ladies suggested it to me. Now that we've gotten my disclaimer out of the way, I still have a few complaints about the book. 1) It might be old-fashioned of me, but I think that books for kids should include some kind of learning angle. The lessons don't have to be life-shattering, but there should be something there. It can be about socializing or history, morality or science, but there should be something in the stories we give to our children that offer them tools with which to approach the world. This book is about two kid-authors who spend the entire book procrastinating and then (spoilers) at the last minute pull through and finish their project by WRITING ABOUT HOW THEY PROCRASTINATED. And then their books is published and everyone loves it. So I guess the moral of the story is "Hey Kids! You can not do the shit you're supposed to do and you'll still be fine!". Good lesson, Andy Griffiths, good lesson. 2) It's lazy story telling. At the end of the book there are several pages that are just shrunken down images of previous pages because Andy and Terry are "writing the story" and that is the visual representation of them doing so. There is a page full of frames of a single dog saying "bark" over and over again. There are many instances of this and, although I get the comedic value of them, it wound up feeling like Griffiths was trying to reach a certain page count and he did so in the laziest way possible. 3) The book encourages bad behavior. I don't understand why we give kids stuff like this. Again, I understand the comedic effect in having a machine that chases you around shooting marshmallows into your mouth. I understand that it's funny to have a machine that obliterates vegetables. I get that it's funny to describe your best friend as being stupid and annoying, etc. But those things are only funny because we've decided that they're funny and can we please just live in a society where we give up on destructive scripts? Vegetables are just food. People LIKE their friends and (because of this) say nice things about them instead of destructive things. 3) It's about two little white boys getting away with stuff they probably shouldn't get away with. Can we just retire that narrative already? Why not a girl and a boy who are best friends and go on crazy hi-jinks? Kids won't notice the difference and it'll subconsciously do positive things for their worldview. I'm still giving the book to my nephew because I think he'll like it (and the imaginative element of the book is pretty fun), but I hope his taste develops quickly and in the future I am totally doing better research and finding him a book that isn't so exceptionally mediocre.

    A perfectly silly book ( series of 3, I believe) for that semi- reluctant Summer reader who is an 8-9 year old boy and needs to get back into " school mode." Half book - half comic book ( lots of pictures) this is just the ticket to rekindle interest.

    The cover and title of this book are so promising, but the story was quite a disappointment. Two guys live in a really cool treehouse and have some really cool things, but after the "tour" in the first few pages, it's pretty much a book about two guys who are supposed to be writing a book, which ends up being the book we are now reading.

A bit too meta for the audience, but not even in an interesting way. Predictable, simplistic, and read like a slacker's attempt at an essay for school that was put off until the last minute. Which is essentially what the authors/characters say it is, but they and their editors should know better than to actually publish something like this. The drawings suggest an attempt at a Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Captain Underpants feeling to the book. Some are very detailed and fun to look at, though after awhile I realized that very little in the drawings was not also stated in the words. The book was also repetitive in other ways, apparently in an attempt to be humorous...but not a successful one. Entire scenes and even pages were reproduced, sometimes in deliberate ways and sometimes in that way that happens when you forget to edit your work. All in all, I'm going to have difficulty recommending this to the students I thought would enjoy it based on the cover illustration and title. It just wasn't all that fun.

    I am sad to say that 2 stars might even be generous for this juvenile romp. Basically, two guys live in a cool treehouse, with fun rooms and gadgets. But, they are lazy slackers, who are supposed to have written a book for a publisher, have done nothing, and have no idea how they are going to deliver results when weird stuff starts happening. Do yourself a big favor, skip this one in favor of Roald Dahl or David Walliams.

In this first edition of the bestselling series, Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton introduce the reader to their magnificent tree house. While trying to write a book for their pushy publisher, the dynamic duo find that they keep getting sidetracked by a range of madcap situations. The 13-Storey Treehouse is guaranteed to engage the most hesitant of readers, all thanks to the hilarious rounds of fun provided by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. Imagine a tree house, it is every young boy and girl’s dream. Now imagine if you were able to live in this house with your best friend and engage in daily rounds of random fun! For Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, this is the case. Their treehouse has a see through swimming pool, a lemonade fountain, a room full of pillows, a secret underground lab and many other awesome features. When Andy and Terry realise they have failed to complete a book for their cranky publisher, Mr Big Nose, the fun and distraction begins! Plenty of good hearted adventure awaits the reader when they select the all important first story in the treehouse series. I recently discovered the treehouse series, through a review book and via my son, Mr 8’s new interest in this series. I found the most recent book in this series, The 104- Storey Treehouse, utterly hilarious. I was keen to see how this extremely popular series originated. I selected The 13-Storey Treehouse to read for Book Bingo 2018, covering the square ,‘a funny book’. Although I wasn’t rolling around the room in fits of laughter, I did enjoy a snigger or two, courtesy of both the writing and the illustrations of the creative duo of this series. As a mother of two boys, I can see the immediate appeal of The 13-Storey Treehouse. Living in a treehouse, composed of so many appealing features really is every child’s fantasy. With my own reluctant reader in the house, it is hard to find books that will capture and sustain his interest, but The 13-Storey Treehouse has succeeded were others have failed. Mr 8 read this book with ease and actively sought out the further books in the series, which came as quite a welcome surprise. The narrative structure of The 13-Storey Treehouse lends itself to sparking the interest of hard to engage readers. The chapters are short and sharp, some have big page breaks, while others have one word, or simply fun illustrations to follow. All this contributes to a positive reading experience. The 13-Storey Treehouse is a real confidence booster for those hard to capture readers. The scenarios presented to the reader through the adventures in The 13-Storey Treehouse are simply wacky, zany and downright insane! However, there is a sense of magic and fantasy that comes hand in hand with this novel. Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton work in a sort of symmetry. The writing harmonizes the illustrations and vice versa. This is hard to achieve, but this working duo pull it off. Often it was the illustrations that made me laugh, so if you look carefully, you will find many small surprises on each page. I also loved the personality of neighbour Jill and who can forget the formidable Mr Big Nose! They all bounce off each other so well. Be prepared to be faced with a range of slapstick scenarios and way out adventures as soon as you open this book. Climbing each storey of the treehouse guarantees a world inhabited by marshmallow popping machines, giant bananas, monkeys, sea monsters, mermaids and my personal favourite, catenaries! As an adult reader of this 9-12 year old chapter novel, I found it refreshing to sit back and enjoy the relentless roller coaster of fun presented by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton. On a final note, I loved following the process of writing a book for publication, thanks to the amusing exploits of Andy and Terry.

    Review by Jack, age 6.5 It was excellent, it was very, very, very good. It was awesome because it had man-eating sharks and a shark nearly ate Terry. Terry accidently threw Andy's head in the bowling alley. After they ate too many marshmallows they drank too much lemonade from the lemonade fountain. Their treehouse is awesome because it looked small from the outside but is big on the inside.

After they ate too many marshmallows they drank too much lemonade from the lemonade fountain. Their treehouse is awesome because it looked small from the outside but is big on the inside. There was a gorilla and a yellow canary cat with a whole army of yellow canary cats who saved Andy and Terry. They took away the gorilla to a dinosaur island. Terry painted a cat yellow like a yellow canary. The pictures are really, really, really cool. Boys and girls should read this book because it is very interesting and very, very cool and awesome. That's all folks! Review by Mum, age none-of-your-business Anything combining the joint talents of Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton is going to be superb. Andy's writing is a pleasure to read aloud with a deceptively simple style that is never condescending, extremely visual and uses a vocabulary that doesn't require stopping frequently to explain words or phrases. Terry's illustrations complement and enhance the text perfectly, and are chock full of unexpected details. My favourite part of the book was the illustrations of the pages - pages within pages - especially the one that has a page within a page within a page.... (pg 228). We had made a movie like this several days before reading this book, so it was of particular interest to both of us. To get the most out of this book find a kid aged between 5 and 10, share it aloud and be prepared to giggle. We are off to find the next book in the series.

It's not very deep, it has that kind of off-the-wall humour that young boys love. Terry Denton's illustrations are pretty amazing too and every kid/adult would enjoy the minute details he puts in them. Recommended for boys and girls 7-9 and adults looking for a good laugh.

    I read this book to my 6 1/2 year old son. Whilst I thought some parts of the story were over his head and some of the language not appropriate, we really enjoyed it and loved all the twists and turns in the day of a life of Andy and Terry living in a 13 Storey Treehouse. We loved how the cat got painted yellow and turned into a canary and flew away and also how the sea monkeys which weren't sea monkeys turn into a mermaidia and then into a sea monster. A recommended read. Thanks to Netgalley fo I read this book to my 6 1/2 year old son.

    Loved it. My boys would hang out for each new chapter at night. Funny and often my boys would ask 'is this book really for kids?' as some of it was a bit violent (in a funny weird way).

    Listened to the audiobook via BorrowBox! It is very short in length at just 1 hr 30 mins long, but this was such a fun listen. I was laughing at all of the sound effects and the strange but brilliant storyline about two boys Andy and Terry, living in their own massive treehouse and getting up to lots of antics. I would love to continue on the series, alas the library waiting list currently is 6 months long for the next one! I can definitely see younger listeners loving this for sure.

Andy proclaims it’s impossible, but Terry insists it will work and to prove his point tosses the feline from the treehouse. The subsequent illustration shows the cat sprouting wings and flying off into the clouds. If the thought of a cat canary, or catnary as Andy and Terry christen the creature, fills you with mirth, then you will no doubt enjoy the zany silliness of this book.

    Fun and enjoyable! I don't think it is as good as The 26 Storey Treehouse.

I'm talking a flying cat and sea monkeys he order but get a mermaid who turns into a sea monster. All thru the book they have so many adventures that should be in a book.

    I do not understand the hype. At all. :/ One part in particular really bothered me. The sea monster’s poem comes out of nowhere and is terrifying. The day I read it, a patron brought it up in passing. She said her son read that part, closed the book, handed it back to her, and said no more. I couldn’t believe the timing (I literally read that part a half hour before our conversation) and said that also stood out to me (“...then his body I will slaughter...I’ll tear him apart limb from limb...I’l I do not understand the hype.

It was supposed to be silly but was too all over the place. I’ll stick with Roald Dahl if I want a laugh and a good story.

    I realized that I am not the target demographic for these books so the fact that I, a 26-year-old woman, did not enjoy it is irrelevant. The drawings are cute but the story is nothing. But if Roald Dahl can make a good children's book that can be enjoyed by all ages, then it's not so bad to want a good children's book is it?

    Flying cats. Claws coming from above. Something no one wants.
