Hi Guys! I’ve mentioned before that my son, W was a reluctant reader. He still prefers Minecraft to books but, at least now he requests reading material. He’s almost done with his summer reading so I asked him to help me out by reviewing his favorite book. With no further ado, here is W’s kids book review of The 26-Story Treehouse !
An 8-Year-Old Kids Book Review of The 26 Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths.
What is this book about?
It’s about these people who live in a 26 story treehouse. It’s 26 stories! It used to be 13, but they added 13 stories. Each book they add 13 more stories.
Who are the people who live in the treehouse?
Andy and Terry. There’s a person who lives in a cottage next to them and her name is Jill.
What’s your favorite floor of the treehouse?
Hmm, that’s hard. Probably the bowling alley because that’s pretty cool to have in a treehouse. Maybe the bumper cars, too.
What’s your favorite part of the book?
Top 5 Dumbest things Terry has ever done. Because it’s really funny. Terry put gelatin in the Penguin’s bath. That’s number 5. Number 4 is when he rode his horse along the beach and past a sign that read “Danger Quicksand” and Terry said, “It’s going to work out just fine, Horse!” Number 3 involves rowing with an Elephant Friend. Number 2: Took a boa constrictor to a movie. And number 1: Tried to wash his underpants in a shark tank. (Yes, they have their own shark tank! A man eating shark tank!)
Why do you think people should read this book?
They should read it because it’s funny. It made me laugh a lot. It has some action but mostly it’s really really funny.
Do you recommend the whole series to kids?
Yes, I recommend the whole series but this one is the funniest!
What ages do you think it would be good for?
I think it’s good for maybe six-year-olds to 100-year-olds.
Anything else you want to add?
I just really liked it. That’s it.
The 26 Story Treehouse is the second book in the series that starts with The 13 Story Treehouse. It’s a hilarious book about the author, Andy, and illustrator, Terry, living in a huge treehouse. I have to hand it to them, they are both super creative. I would never have thought to put a Maze of Doom in a treehouse. Between eating marshmallows the two characters get into and then out of crazy situations. The jokes are funny and the situations are ridiculous. No kid can resist these illustrated stories. They are great for kids from second to fourth grade.
