In stock

Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton invite readers to come hang out with them in their 156-story treehouse—the twelfth book in the illustrated chapter book series filled with their signature slapstick humor!

Andy and Terry live in a 156-story treehouse. (It used to be a 143-story treehouse, but they added 13 more levels.)

It’s the night before Christmas but Andy and Terry aren’t ready yet! They haven’t written their letters to Santa or hung their stockings, and now Mr. Big Nose wants their next book done by tomorrow. When Santa's sleigh crash-lands in the treehouse, the reindeer become tangled in the branches and Santa falls into the cloning machine.

It’s up to Andy, Terry, and Jill to work together to save Christmas—and maybe even finish their book on time!

Gr 3-5-Griffiths and Denton are back for a new adventure in their 156-story treehouse (13 stories have been added to the treehouse since the last book). Andy introduces readers to all the cool things inside the treehouse, including a bouldering alley, which is like bowling but with boulders; an aquarium with their pet axolotl, Quazjex; and even an enigma machine. Andy and Terry's shenanigans include elements of fairy tales; their book publisher, Mr. Big Nose; 12 Santas (created when Santa falls into the cloning machine); and Jill-who, of course, saves the day. Intricate pen illustrations add to the story on every page, and readers will be able to combine words and illustrations to create a more thorough understanding of the storylines. The vocabulary is on-point, with a few words that will add to readers' vernacular, such as "Gorgonzola" and "axolotl." Readers will laugh out loud at the jokes in this humorous story. With a tagline like Holiday Havoc, even the most reluctant reader is in for a wild ride. VERDICT Readers of the "Dogman" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series will embrace this story.-Katie Loomisα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
