Pupils Join Andy Griffiths on Treehouse Adventure

Joined by pupils from five visiting schools, Shell and Form 1 pupils gave an enthusiastic welcome to Andy Griffiths, author of the Treehouse Storey books, on Monday 8th October. Andy treated them to a tour of how his Treehouse has grown, from 13 levels in the beginning to the current level of 104, whilst describing his extraordinary adventures with his co-illustrator Terry, along the way.  Finishing the event by playing a song on a balloon and inviting the  children to Choose their own Adventure in the dentist’s chair, it was a riotous, fun and totally engaging session which all the audience loved.
