Category: Fiction, Humor
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
This book is a hilarious, action-packed, completely goofy story about two guys, Andy and Terry, who live in a 13-story tree house with lots of cool rooms and platforms (it has a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, swinging vines, a giant catapult, and more!). The book is all about Andy and Terry's wacky day, featuring a homicidal mermaid, marauding monkeys, a giant banana, and a floating marshmallow shooting machine. Packed with drawings and jokes, this is perfect for people who like Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants books.
