A joyful celebration of the outside world and the imagination
How many wonderful things start with time, with looking up and the imagination? That’s how treehouses start, according to this beautiful and inspiring picture book. As each page turns, we explore a different treehouse in the company of groups of little children, excited, happy, working together. And the treehouses, how wonderful are they? The one shaped like a pirate ship, the one with the huge built-in bookcase, the ones high up amidst the stars in the sky, all extraordinary, all for children only, places in which to dream and explore. It’s a book that repays multiple readings with each spread full of detail and joy.
This lyrical text from author Carter Higgins gives life and meaning to all the requisite elements of a treehouse, from time, timber, and rafters to a rope of twisted twine, so you can sprawl out on a limb and slide back down again.
Higgins's text, filled with beautiful images and an incredibly readable assonant cadence, captures the universal timelessness of the treehouse and celebrates all the creativity, poignancy, and adventure inherent therein.
