Andy Griffiths' books have sold over 5 million copies worldwide, have featured on the New York Times bestseller lists, and have won over 50 children's choice awards. Andy and Terry's treehouse series is currently captivating readers across Australia. Terry Denton was tenderised at an early age by his four brothers but somehow survived childhood in inner-suburban Melbourne. He escaped to the seaside where he started writing and illustrating children's books. He shares a house with his wife and three children and a lawnmower and an electric pencil sharpener and a pop-up toaster that only toasts toast on one side.
