The Treehouse Fun Book 2 by Jill Griffiths, Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton

Do you know a fan of Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s Treehouse series? Are you looking for something to occupy them these school holidays? You need to rush out to your nearest bookshop and buy a copy of The Treehouse Fun Book 2 from the creators of the Treehouse series.


The Treehouse Fun Book 2 is the perfect book for any fan of the brilliantly funny series.  It is chock full of Terry’s hilarious illustrations that kids love and Andy, Jill and Terry’s crazy antics.  It’s a book to make kids really feel like a part of the series as they fill in their details at the start of the book and get to control the action by writing and drawing. You can use the combining machine to make crazy new animals, create moo-vie posters, decipher coded messages, create a disaster in the treehouse, write in speech bubbles to create wacky conversations between animals, and make up names for Jill’s rabbits.  There really is hours of entertainment in this book and it will have kids laughing out loud.

Grab a copy of The Treehouse Fun Book 2 to keep your kids entertained these school holidays.
