Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Andy and Terry's friendship anchors their wild adventures in the sprawling, fun Treehouse Books, but this time friction over a movie deal -- and expected fame and fortune -- nearly ruins everything. Author Andy Griffiths and illustrator Terry Denton pile on the lunacy with every 13-story addition, and The 78-Story Treehouse is no exception. Spy cows trying to steal the movie lurk on every page, and the boys reach their breaking point over a missing bag of chips.

Andy's hurt feelings ring true: He's jealous, sure, but really he's worried Terry is going on to grander adventures and will leave him behind. The resolution of their feud is a little too easy, but then this is the kind of book where a key plot point involves a turbo tortoise ... probably best not to overthink it, and just enjoy the wild ride.
