"The Treehorn Trilogy" by Florence Parry Heide, illustrated by Edward Gorey
Meet Treehorn, a young boy with a talent for getting into and out of (and sometimes right back into) unusual sutiations. "The Shrinking of Treehorn" finds him growing down instead of growing up. In "Treehorn's Treasure", he puts a creative spin on an adage spoken by his father. A genie adds some befuddlement to the boy's birthday in "Treehorn's Wish". Treehorn's quandries are complicated by pre-occupied adults, his fickel freind Moshie, and of course, comic books, coupons, and ceral box tops.
Written by Florence Parry Heide and illustrated by the indescribable Edward Gorey in his classic etching drawing style, this three volume gift set is hard bound and comes in a hard slip case for decades of enjoyment by old and young alike; anyone who can appreciate the slightly loopy, definitely twisted sense of humor in all things Edward Gorey. A wonderful bedtime story collection and a must have addition to any serious Gorey collection!
