5 Stars - If you think the kids' tree house you built at the end of the garden is the bee's knees, then don't let the children see this gem - a compendium of arboreal domiciles that contain everything you need to know about wooden shacks balancing precariously high above the ground. In chapters, 'Private Treehouses' and 'Treehouses of the Future', you'll find the folks who really are out of their trees. This is where fantasy takes over in the land ruled by fairies. --Amateur Photograher
Pick of the Picture Books. A lifeline to those who consigned treehouses to the same Elysian fields as sandpits and paddling pools, 'Treehouses' provides a fascinating account of "the earliest form of natural architecture". Meticulous photography is complemented by detailed research of the arboreal abodes. --Independent
Having read this book and flicked through its images a few hundred times, I feel it is irresistible as a coffee table, waiting room or bedside locker book for both dreamers and the more practical reader alike with an array of guidelines, instructions and a list of specialist companies who will actually build a treehouse for you. --Compass --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
