The 13-Storey Treehouse

(5 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan

A rip-roaringly funny book about writing (or actually not writing) a book. The author and illustrator realise that they are due to present their latest book to their publisher within 24 hours. Unfortunately they have absolutely no idea what to write, and all sorts of bizarre things keep happening which prevent them from writing anything! Living in a 13-story treehouse is hard enough, but that's the least of their problems.

Griffiths and Denton create a metafictional triumph to engage even the most determined hater of books. Very liberally endowed with hilarious cartoon drawings, which guide the reader and add several pages which can be 'read' within seconds, we also have a whistlestop tour of book production, from writing to reader.
