Marginalia: Andy Griffiths

Even if you’ve been reading books for young readers in the United States for a number of years, chances are you still are not aware of Andy Griffiths. But he is considered by many the most popular and one of the best-selling author for young readers in Australia. 

Griffiths and illustrator Terry Denton have created a Treehouse series, which has gained popularity in the states and is a New York Times bestselling series. Each book contains 13 new stories, and they’re now up to their ninth book in the series, The 117-Story Treehouse.

Andy Griffiths is on book tour in the United States and I was able to catch up with him to talk about the latest book. Here's our conversation:


Andy Griffiths will be at Watermark Books & Cafe for a 6:00 p.m. book talk and signing on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.


The 117-Story Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and illustrated by Terry Denton was published by Feiwel and Friends.
