The Shrinking of Treehorn, Treehorn's Treasure, and Treehorn's Wish

This book is a perfect marriage of writing and illustration, menacing yet funny. A book I wish I had both written and illustrated. ~ Lauren Child

The Treehorn Trilogy Synopsis

The Shrinking Of Treehorn, Treehorn's Treasure, and Treehorn's Wish are available in one stunning volume for the first time. This title features Edward Gorey's famous character, Treehorn, a clever, but repeatedly ignored little boy who just wants to be noticed by his parents. Treehorn and his schemes come alive with Gorey's humorous, tongue in cheek style and witty pen and ink drawings. This is a delightful picture book collection that will amuse young readers and also be the perfect gift for all Gorey fans and collectors.
