Rated 3 out of 5 by from The simple pleasures in growing up Inspired from events in Andrew Larsen's life, from a picture of boys building a treehouse on his fridge growing up, to the 2003 blackout in Toronto, "In the Tree House" tells the story of a boy. his brother, and a treehouse. Its illustrations uses lines and shadows, giving it a very crisp look amidst the down-to-earth story. Short and sweet, it points to the simple pleasures in life, from hanging out with a sibling to watching the starry stars shine in the dark sky of the night.
