The Shrinking of Treehorn Paperback – October 1, 1992
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Treehorn's parents, his teacher, and his principal respond (or fail to respond) to his drastically diminishing stature in ways that will ring true to any kid who has tried to convince adults of the existence of fairies, the Loch Ness Monster, or things that go bump in the night. Edward Gorey's stark, intricately patterned black-and-white drawings are simultaneously quaint and creepy, setting the perfect stage for Treehorn's tale--a story for any child who has ever felt ignored by grown-ups (in other words, a story for all). (Ages 4 to 8) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

The scene in which Treehorn is sent to the principal's office is one of the funniest views of schools that exists.
