The 78-storey treehouse by Andy Griffiths. Two happy readers under our own tree in the library

The 78-storey treehouse

By Andy Griffiths

ISBN 9781743535004


Two very happy readers with the latest release from Andy Griffiths. Just released today! Rosa and Baxter are in our library standing under our own tree (with our Olympic display), holding up the library copies of The 78-storey treehouse. When I held up the copies of the books for issuing, every hand went up. Pop in and reserve your copy. I confess I whipped through it before I let anyone else have a turn and giggled all the way through it.

Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton are an awesome team. Check out Andy’s website.




Author Andy Griffiths coming to Christchurch these holidays



Very exciting news that author Andy Griffiths will be in Christchurch in the school holidays.

His famous and very funny Tree-house books are so popular that even with multiple copies they are always out of the library on loan.

Who:     Andy Griffiths

Where: Original Children’s Bookshop

             Shop 5

             Blenheim Square

             227 Blenheim Road.

When:  Saturday, October 3, 2-3pm.

He is very busy and we are so lucky he is coming to the Children’s Bookshop shop but he will only be able to sign books and not put personal names in them. He will also only be able to sign two books per person. It has been quite a few years since he was in Christchurch so do try and get to see him when he is here.

I will be there too so do come and say hi!  In the mean time enjoy a little trailer and listen to Andy discuss his 26-Story Treehouse book. Or you can find out more about Andy on his website.
