New York Times bestselling author Andy Griffiths invites readers to come hang out with him and his friend Terry in their 78-Story Treehouse—the sixth book in the illustrated chapter book series filled with Andy and Terry's signature slapstick humor!

Andy and Terry live in a 78-story treehouse. (It used to be a 65-story treehouse, but they just keep building more levels!) It has a drive-thru car wash, a courtroom with a robot judge called Edward Gavelhead, a scribbletorium, a combining machine, an ALL-BALL sports stadium, a high-security potato chip storage facility, and an open-air movie theatre with a super-giant screen . . . which is a very useful thing to have now that Terry’s going to be a big-shot movie star!

After Andy gets cut out of the movie, he and Terry have a big fight and decide they don’t want to be best friends anymore. But with a herd of sneaky spy cows out to steal all their story ideas, can Andy and Terry make up before it’s too late?

Praise for the Treehouse series:

"Anarchic absurdity at its best. . . . Denton's manic cartooning captures every twist and turn in hilarious detail." —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The 13-Story Treehouse

"Will appeal to fans of Jeff Kinney and Dav Pilkey. . . . The wonderfully random slapstick humor is tailor-made for reluctant readers. . . . A treat for all." —Booklist on The 13-Story Treehouse

"Twice the treehouse, twice the fun? You bet. . . . Denton's furiously scrawled line drawings milk the silly, gross-out gags for everything they're worth. Kids should be flipping pages faster than a pair of inflatable underpants can skyrocket the young heroes to safety." —Publishers Weekly, starred review, on The 26-Story Treehouse

The 78-Story Treehouse - Andy Griffiths



Hi, my name is Andy.

This is my friend Terry.

We live in a tree.

Well, when I say tree, I mean treehouse. And when I say treehouse, I don’t just mean any old treehouse—I mean a 78-story treehouse! (It used to be a 65-story treehouse, but we’ve added another 13 stories.)

So what are you waiting for?

Come on up!

It’s got a drive-through car wash (that you can drive through with the windows open and the roof down),

a combining machine,

a not-so-tight tightrope,

a 78-plate-spinning level,

a giant unhatched egg,

a courtroom with a robot judge called Edward Gavelhead,

a scribbletorium,

Andyland (a land full of Andy clones created in our cloning machine),

Terrytown (a crazy town full of Terry clones),

Jillville (a village full of Jills),

an ALL-BALL sports stadium (where you can play every ball sport in the whole world all at the same time),

an open-air movie theater with a super-giant screen,

and a high-security potato chip storage facility protected by 1,000 loaded mousetraps, 100 laser beams, a 10-ton weight, and one very angry duck.

As well as being our home, the treehouse is also where we make books together. I write the words, and Terry draws the pictures.

As you can see, we’ve been doing this for quite a while now.

Sure, things can get crazy when you live in a 78-story treehouse …

But we always get our book written in the end … somehow.



If you’re like most of our readers, you’re probably wondering if we’re ever going to make a Treehouse movie. Well … guess what? We’re making one right now!

We’ve got lights …

cameras …

chairs with our names on the backs …

and a big-shot Hollywood movie director called Mr. Big Shot calling the shots.…

CUT! yells Mr. Big Shot. That’s BORING!

"But that’s how I always start the book," I say.

This is NOT a book, barks Mr. Big Shot through his megaphone. It’s a MOVIE!

Well, yes, I say, "I know that and you know that, but I was just explaining it to the
