Andy Griffiths is the author of over twenty books, including nonsense verse, badly drawn cartoons, short stories, comic novels and creative writing textbooks. Over the past 15 years Andy’s books have been New York Times bestsellers, won over 40 children’s choice awards, been adapted as a television cartoon series and sold over four million copies worldwide.

Andy is an ambassador for the Indigenous Literacy Project. He has travelled around Australia to conduct writing workshops with students in remote communities. The students wrote stories based on their own lives. These stories could be true or fictional or a mixture of both. Thirteen stories edited by Andy have been published in The Naked Boy and the Crocodile.

Andy and Terry live in a 13-storey treehouse. They’ve got a bowling alley, a see-through swimming pool, a tank full of sharks, a games arcade, a giant rope swing, a vegetable vaporiser and a marshmallow machine that follows them around and shoots marshmallows into their mouths whenever they’re hungry. Read all about them in The 13-Storey Treehouse.
