Tuesday, 5 September 2023 is Treehouse Day.

It’s the day Pan Macmillan Australia will publish The 169-Storey Treehouse, the explosive final adventure in the phenomenal Treehouse series by Australia’s most popular children’s author and illustrator Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.

This monumental occasion is the culmination of 13 extraordinary years of creating stories full of magical absurdity that have engaged and thrilled all kinds of readers.

The series has had 8 national No.1s on release and has won a record 8 Australian Book Industry Awards for Younger Readers. The 52-Storey Treehouse won the overall Australian Book of the Year in the Australian Book Industry Awards, the first time a children’s book has ever done this.

The Treehouse series has blazed brightly, smashed all sales records, set a staggering benchmark for national No. 1s, and delighted hundreds of thousands of readers. It is an enduring, incredible legacy from the most creative collaborators in Australian children’s literature, Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.


Andy and Terry have built their biggest and most astonishing treehouse yet! It has everything they—and you—could wish for including an electric pony stable, a Santa Land, a NOISY level, a kangaroo-riding range, a weather dome (where you can have whatever weather you want whenever you want it), a 100% edible gingerbread house and a potato-powered translation transmitter that allows you to talk to everyone—and everything—all at the same time.

And best of all there’s a hall of funhouse mirrors, which is the perfect place to hide from Mr Bunkoff who is trying to catch Andy, Terry and Jill and send them to SCHOOL.

But Anti-Andy, Terrible Terry and Junkyard Jill—their trouble-making opposites—are trapped in one of the mirrors—and they want out. (Oh, and Mr Big Nose wants his book written … RIGHT NOW.)

Can our heroes escape school, defeat their doppelgangers AND meet their book deadline?

Well, what are you waiting for? Come on up to find out!

Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton began their creative partnership with Just Tricking! in 1997. They have now collaborated on eight Just books (with more than a million copies sold), the off-the-wall The Cat on the Mat is Flat, and now the phenomenal, sales-breaking, award-winning Treehouse series.

Andy and Terry have won numerous kids choice awards and many of their titles are nominated every year. The 13-Storey Treehouse, The 26-Storey Treehouse, The 39-Storey Treehouse, The 52-Storey Treehouse, The 65-Storey Treehouse, The 78-Storey Treehouse, The 104-Storey Treehouse and The 117-Storey Treehouse have all won ABIA awards. The 91-Storey Treehouse won the ABIA Audiobook of the Year in 2018 and The 52-Storey Treehouse also won the overall ABIA Book of the Year in 2015.
