The 52-Story Treehouse: 02/09/17

The 52-Story Treehouseby Andy GriffithsThe 52-Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton is the fourth book in the series. As always, Andy and Terry are too busy improving their treehouse to notice their impending book deadline. That is until they notice that Mr. Big Nose, their publisher, hasn't contacted them to yell at them.

Andy and Terry decide to leave the treehouse and set out to solve the case of missing Mr. Big Nose. Along the way they end up having to use disguises pulled from their Disguise-o-Matic 5000 to break into a castle run by vegetables.

It's all very absurdist both in text and in illustrations. Each volume has a theme that it riffs. This one, is the world of publishing, meaning that many of the puns and gags are book related. There are nods to The Hobbit and the Very Hungry Caterpillar among others.

Too see some of my favorite scenes, please check my Tumblr where I live blogged the book.

Five stars
