Join New York Times-bestselling author Andy Griffiths on another wild storytelling adventure in the series Publishers Weekly describes as "Anarchic absurdity at its best." This time, come hang out with him and his friend Terry in their 117-Story Treehouse – the ninth book in the illustrated chapter book series filled with Andy and Terry’s signature slapstick humor!
“Mr. Griffiths’ work is both witty and fantastical, with a dark edge not dissimilar to Roald Dahl… The Treehouse books [are making] their way into the lives of a generation of readers.” –The New York Times
Andy and Terry live in a 117-story treehouse. (It used to be a 104-story treehouse, but it just keeps growing!) It now has a pajama-party room, a water-ski park filled with flesh-eating piranhas, an Underpants Museum, a giant-fighting-robot arena, and the Door of Doom (don’t open it or you’ll be COMPLETELY and UTTERLY DOOMED!).
For as long as Andy and Terry have been writing books together, Andy has always been the narrator and Terry has always been the illustrator. But when Terry tries to prove that he can narrate as well as draw, the story goes completely out of control and the Story Police arrive to arrest the whole treehouse team for crimes against storytelling! Andy, Terry and Jill go on the run, but how long can they evade the Story Police and stay out of Story Jail?
