Why Treehouses Are All the Rage in Children’s Books Elizabeth Hale , Lynnette Lounsbury , 2018 single work column
— Appears in: The Conversation , 19 April 2018;

'Two of Australia’s most popular children’s storytellers live in a treehouse. It’s a Thirteen-Storey one, at least it started out that way. The storytellers are Terry Denton and Andy Griffiths, responsible for an array of children’s comedies, who live in a fantasy treehouse paradise. There they write and illustrate their stories, distracted by the lemonade fountains, see-through shark-infested swimming pool and a marshmallow gun that shoots directly into your mouth.' (Introduction)

y separately published work icon Terry's Dumb Dot Story : A Treehouse Tale Andy Griffiths , Terry Denton , Sydney : Pan Macmillan Australia , 2018 13724412 2018 single work children's fiction children's

'Andy always narrates the Treehouse stories. That's because Terry is the illustrator and 'illustrators can't narrate-everybody knows that!'

Everyone except Terry, that is.

He can tell a story too. Just watch what he can do.

He begins with a dot.
A dot that joins up with some lines.
Some lines that join up with some shapes.
Some shapes that go ... KABLAM!

And that's just the beginning of the Trouble in the Treehouse.' (Source: Publisher's blurb)
