The Treehorn Trilogy: The Shrinking of Treehorn, Treehorn's Treasure, Treehorn's Wish

by and

The Treehorn Trilogy: The Shrinking of Treehorn, Treehorn's Treasure, Treehorn's Wish Cover

 

Staff Pick

There's a little bit of Treehorn in all of us: hapless, imaginative, earnest. These are seriously silly tales, perfectly illustrated by the amazing Edward Gorey. Try reading them aloud with different voices for the dour father and prim, clueless mother. Lots of fun for unconventional story time!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Three stunning Edward Gorey classics, available in one volume. Featuring a clever-but repeatedly ignored-little boy named Treehorn, these stories will delight readers of all ages.

In The Shrinking of Treehorn, Treehorn is clearly shrinking, and his parents aren't the least bit interested. Treehorn's Treasure shows what happens when the leaves on the backyard tree turn into dollar bills. And in Treehorn's Wish, our hero's parents neglect his birthday-but he finds a genie in a bottle, which changes things considerably. Treehorn's angst, and his whimsical schemes, come alive through Gorey's witty pen-and-ink drawings and drolly humorous text by noted author Florence Parry Heide. This beautifully-crafted, tongue-in-cheek omnibus is the perfect gift for collectors and fans of Edward Gorey.
