The 52 Storey Treehouse

On Tuesday 9th August, Year 2 visited the Seymour Centre to watch a play called ‘The 52 Storey Treehouse’ which was adapted from the book written by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.

The play was about Andy and Terry’s 52 storey treehouse with fantastic inventions: a watermelon smashing room, a chainsaw-juggling level, a rocket powered carrot launcher, and even a Ninja Snail Training Academy.

It all happened on a special day – it was Andy’s birthday, but Terry had forgotten! To make matters worse Mr Big Nose had mysteriously disappeared, and to top it all off, Jill had fallen into a deep sleep and they just couldn’t wake her up. So Andy and Terry set off on a crazy adventure tackling a world of obstacles including a hungry caterpillar, an angry vegetable kingdom, and a 100 year ninja-snail epic adventure. Eventually, they found Mr Big Nose and rescued him from the evil vegetables with the help of Vegetable Patty.

Take a look at the photos below! We had a lovely picnic lunch at the park before we watched the play.

    Thank you Year Two for sharing your day with me! Your behaviour was fabulous and it was a pleasure to be part of the fun (and watch Terry and Andy fly a very eggy contraption ).

  2. Terry Denton says:

    Glad you year 2s had a good time at the treehouse play. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see it. We are travelling around Australia now launching The 78 Storey Treehouse for another week. Lots of fun. Keep on reading!!!

      Dear Terry Denton,

      I have the whole collection of books of the 13 storey treehouse, 26 storey,39 storey treehouse,52 storey treehouse, 65 storey treehouse and the 78 storey treehouse. I loved the last book too. I have a question, please. Is Mr Big Nose your real publisher? I love your interesting ideas and wild imagination used in creating your books. I also love the funny drawings in the books. I also enjoyed a lot the play “The 52 storey treehouse”- it was very funny. You two inspire me to write my own story and a wrote one but still looking for a publisher. I hope you create many more books and looking forward to the 91 storey treehouse!

      Kind Reguards,

      Dear Terry Denton ,
      I read the Pinocchio story. Every time Pinocchio is naughty or liar, his nose is longer.
      In your books of story treehouses, Mr big nose gets angry all the time and any time he gets angry his nose gets bigger. I have a question for you that is there any relation between the two characters Pinocchio and Mr big nose? Is it real that any time we are naughty or angry our noses get bigger?

      Kind regards,
      A.V

    Thanks for coming! I do hope the fake-ANDY behaved himself and that Fake-Terry wasn’t as annoying as he is in real life. Enjoy the new book and we’ll look forward to seeing you all in the treehouse (there’s a midnight marshmallow party at midnight … Every night!). Andy
