Andy Griffiths with Jeff Kinney

New York Times bestselling author Andy Griffiths will join us all the way from Australia to invite us into his 156-Story Treehouse! The twelfth book in the Treehouse series, illustrated by Terry Denton, finds Andy and Terry on a mission to find the real Santa after he accidentally falls into a cloning machine! Andy and Terry’s slapstick humor shines through on every page of this new installment, and we hope you’ll join us to celebrate. Diary of a Wimpy Kid author Jeff Kinney will be joining Andy for the event. The two will discuss the new edition to the popular series and answer audience questions!

This event will be held in our third floor studio space. Tickets are bundled with a copy of 156-Story Treehouse that Andy will sign after the event. A companion ticket option is available for families coming with multiple kids who only need one copy of the book. PLEASE NOTE: Companion tickets must be purchased in addition to a regular bundled ticket. Please reach out to with any questions regarding ticketing.

Andy and Terry live in a 156-story treehouse. (It used to be a 143-story treehouse, but they added 13 more levels.) It has a wishing well, a super-stinky stuff level, a bouldering alley (it’s just like bowling, except you use boulders instead of balls), an enigma engine, a TV quiz show level hosted by Quizzy the quizzical robot, and the amazing mind-reading sandwich-making machine that knows exactly what sort of sandwich you want and makes it for you.

It’s the night before Christmas but Andy and Terry aren’t ready yet! They haven’t written their letters to Santa, they haven’t sung any carols or hung their stockings, and now Mr. Big Nose wants their next book done by tomorrow. When Santa Claus’s sleigh crash-lands in the treehouse, the reindeer become tangled in the branches and Santa falls into the cloning machine. With dozens of Santas running around and no way to tell which one’s the real one, who’s going to deliver all the presents? It’s up to Andy, Terry, and Jill to work together to save Christmas—and maybe even finish their book on time!
