Terry’s Dumb Dot Story: A Treehouse Tale

« Back
Written by: Andy Griffiths
Illustrated by: Terry Denton

Meet Andy and Terry, the co-creators of Terry’s Dumb Dot Story. They make books together in the world’s coolest treehouse! But this time they can’t agree about a special story for World Book Day – and it’s not just Mr Big Nose keeping an eye on them now, but the story police too!

Take a sneak peek inside:

What the Toppsta reviewers think:

‘Very amusing story about Andy the story teller letting Terry the illustrator have a go at writing a story.  Terry realises it is not as simple as it seems.  It has got my 6 year old writing his own books (some with dots!) A great fun book and perfect for world book day.’ – Ragdollkhan, age 6

‘I LOVED this story. I love the Tree House stories and this was brilliant too. The illustrations are amazing and the story was very funny. Andy, the narrator, lets Terry, the illustrator, have a turn of writing and he realises how tricky it can be until he comes up with his dot story. I would highly recommend this book to children aged 7+.’ – Josh, age 9

‘This book is so silly and hilarious! Its about the Author and the illustrator (Andy and Terry) Andy narrates the book up until Terry argues that he should get a go narrating as well … My absolute favourite part of the book was the very last page, But I wont tell you what happened because that would give the whole story away. This Story was amazing and I would recommend to age 7 plus.’ – Giggle, age 10

‘My son started reading this at 6.10pm and by 6.50pm, it had been read, digested and then looked through again. He was a bit dubious about it at first, but when the story got going he loved it. He is now drawing dot evolutions based vaguely on the story. Definite hit.’ – rsa read it, age 8
