Portland: Pomegranate Kids, 2011. Edward Gorey (drawings). Boxset, hardcover in slipcase. NEW. 17.5 x 17 x 5 cm. Item #13793
The Treehorn Trilogy contains three well-loved stories chronicling the trials of Treehorn, a young boy with a talent for getting into and out of (and sometimes right back into) unusual situations.
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; and a genie adds some befuddlement to the boy’s birthday in Treehorn’s Wish.
In these tales—each written by Florence Parry Heide and illustrated by Edward Gorey—Treehorn’s quandaries are complicated by preoccupied adults, his fickle friend Moshie, and, of course, comic books, coupons, and cereal box tops.
Three hardcover smyth-sewn casebound books, each 6.5 x 6 inches and each 64 pages, packaged together in a sturdy slipcase.
