Andy and Terry have another adventure in their fantastical treehouse. In this 8thadventure, they try to fix Andy’s toothache and purchase a Joke Writer 2000 pencil to help them write their latest book. That’s the plot in a nutshell.
If this is your first foray into the treehouse series, you don’t need any previous novels to get the plot. There really isn’t much plot. In fact, this one seemed weaker on plot than other treehouse books, since 26 pages are literally nothing but Andy and Terry climbing upstairs to get to get to a bird’s nest, and an 18 page poem about the tooth fairy visiting Terry. If you’re a fan, then you know what you’re in for and you’ll love it. Otherwise the pictures are actually more fun than the writing.
