Author Information

Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton began their creative partnership with Just Tricking! in 1997. They have now collaborated on eight Just books (with more than a million copies sold), the ground-breaking The Bad Book, the off-the-wall The Cat on the Mat is Flat), and now the phenomenal, sales-record-smashing, award winning Treehouse series.

Andy and Terry have won numerous kids choice awards and many of their titles are nominated every year.

Andy Griffiths is one of the most popular children's authors in Australia. He has written over 30 books, including nonsense verse, short stories, comic novels and plays. His books have been New York Times bestsellers, won more than 80 children's choice awards, been adapted as a television cartoon series and sold more than twelve million copies worldwide. He is best known as the author of the JUST! series, The Day My Bum Went Psycho and, in recent years, the bestselling Treehouse series.

In 2008 Andy became the first Australian author to win six children's choice awards in one year for Just Shocking.

In 2008 Andy and his wife Jill collaborated with The Bell Shakespeare Company on the popular and critically acclaimed theatrical production 'Just Macbeth!' which was nominated for two Helpmann Awards. In July 2010 'Just Macbeth!' completed a return sold- out season at the Sydney Opera House before heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The book of the play was shortlisted for the 2010 Prime Minister's Literary Awards.

Andy has had a long-standing collaboration with the multi-talented illustrator Terry Denton. Readers who want to sneak behind the scenes to see Andy and Terry's creative partnership can dive into Once Upon A Slime. This book aims to ignite the writer inside by offering story ideas and zany activities.

In 2011 Andy and Terry started a new series that has captivated audiences across the country, smashed sales records and won industry awards. The 13-Storey Treehouse won the Book of the Year for Older Children at the Australian Book Industry Awards in 2012. The 26-Storey Treehouse, The 39-Storey Treehouse, The 52-Storey Treehouse and The 65-Storey Treehouse have all won ABIA Awards and The 52-Storey Treehouse also won the overall ABIA Book of the Year in 2015. The 65-Storey Treehouse and The 78-Storey Treehouse have been, respectively, the fastest selling Australian books ever. The 91-Storey Treehouse was published in 2017.

Stage shows of The 13-Storey Treehouse, The 26-Storey Treehouse, The 52-Storey Treehouse and The 78-Storey Treehouse have had sell-out seasons at the Sydney Opera House. The stage show of The 91-Storey Treehouse will be showing in early 2019.

Andy is an ambassador for The Indigenous Literacy Foundation and the Pyjama Foundation, and was awarded the Dromkeen Medal in 2015 to honour his outstanding contribution to Australian children's literature.

Terry Denton is a writer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. His work is mainly humour-based cartoon style.


Terry Denton has illustrated bestsellers such as the JUST! series and the Treehouse series by Andy Griffiths. He has three children and is the owner of a back garden burial ground for dead pets.
