“It was such a pleasure reading these lively, funny, surprising, silly, exciting and well imagined treehouse stories.
Congratulations to everybody who entered – you clearly had a lot of fun writing and illustrating your stories and I had a lot of fun reading them. You all made me laugh out loud many, many times – thank you.”

Congratulations to Sasha Mackenzie who won the 2016 Andy Griffiths Kids’ Writing Competition.
Andy described the winning entry The Tree House Hospital for Babies as “A beautiful story, really well imagined and realised with lots of fun wordplay. The accompanying illustration is sensational and fully alive with characters and their conversations. A pleasure to read and, I’m sure, a pleasure for all the mothers and babies who go there.”
