Andy Griffiths

Wed 21 September 2016

Andy Griffiths is a rock star of the kids' book world. But did you know the author of the hugely popular 'Treehouse' series (78 storeys and counting) never had a treehouse as a kid? Instead he created his own magazine called Popcorn, a totally fictional band called Silver Cylinder and amassed a collection of magic tricks and novelties such as fake vomit.

Andy joins Barry Divola to reveal the precocious and imaginative kid who became a successful writer, while playing Alice Cooper, Little Jimmy Osmond, Dave Warner and more.
