From Our Editors

Poor Treehorn. He wakes up one morning to discover he's shrinking, but no one will believe him...not even his parents. When they can no longer deny his assertions...they simply order him to stop. The late and creepy Edward Gorey illustrates Florence Parry Heide's darkly funny tale of the nagging fears that go with being a child.

Appropriate for ages: 3 - 5
