New Aussie Series to Read After the Treehouse Books

Home » Books » New Aussie Series to Read After the Treehouse Books


Too often adults dismiss ‘the funny books’ like the Treehouse series by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton as not quite as worthy as more ‘highbrow’ literary choices.  A balanced literary diet is great but, so too is page after page of laughter over witty writing and words which make young souls smile from the inside out.

Here are 10+ other choices which will keep your kids laughing (and reading!)!

Five Reasons to Read Humour

  1. Humour engages young people (particularly reluctant readers) as they are naturally playful and generally laugh far more than adults do.
  2. Humorous literature harnesses the exuberance and wonder of youth with words and ideas.
  3. Young people interact with their peers and foster friendships through humorous literature as they enjoy sharing the laughs with their peers.
  4. Humorous books reflect reality, which, in reality, is a mixture of sad and funny, joy and pain, highs and lows.
  5. Far from being an ‘easy option’, humorous literature encourages critical reading as young people learn to read between the lines and develop an awareness of subtly and sarcasm, right and wrong.
