      Long ago I was a young reader growing up in the middle of nowhere (eleven miles from each of the three nearest towns, in fact). I didn't often get to the library, but I had a number of magazines and books thoughtfully delivered by the USPS. One of those magazines, a little digest-sized thing, included The Shrinking of Treehorn. What struck me was the illustration showing Treehorn walking under his own bed, he was that small, carrying a parcheesi-like gamepiece with his arms around its middle, mo [...]

      This may be the greatest character of all time.Long live Treehorn!Treehorn/Treehorn '08My favorite ice cream is Treehorn.When I grow up, I want to be a Treehorn.I can lead a horse to water, and then make him read Treehorn.I took the angel down from off the top of the tree and put up Treehorn.

      When I was six (or was it seven?) Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown and Scott Nash was all the rage. During one weekly library visit several of my classmates beat me to checking out our school's copies. I turned to our librarian with the hopes that she might scare up a copy.Instead she produced The Shrinking of Treehorn by Florence Parry Heide and illustrated by Edward Gorey.This is a simple story about a little boy who is quite literally shrinking. No one - not his parents, his teacher or his principa [...]

      Wonderful illustrator/author combination. A children's book, but much more fun for adults. Very funny and ominous at the same time. Sort of a warning to parents, really. Pay attention!! The author's description of how she came up with the storyline says it all. curiouspages/2010/Love it love it love it. And Gorey is his usual fabulous.

      LOVED reading this to my 5 & 7 yr old daughters. They loved it, too. Great wry humor.

    • Kricket says:

      i loved these stories about treehorn (treehorn is such a great name!) and his terrible parents. edward gorey's artwork is perfect for these. what a great combination.

    • Pat says:

      I originally wanted the Treehorn Trilogy because I love Gorey's artwork. I had never heard of Heide before. Thank God that's been remedied! An absolutely wonderful pairing of author and illustrator. Heide set this trilogy in the 1970s-1980s (unlike Gorey's preferred Edwardian era) but demonstrates her own brand of wry, understated, off-the-wall wit that shows she's a master of comedic writing in her own right. Each book is an absurdly deadpan little gem of surreal humor and fantasy.The hero of a [...]

      I’m a huge fan of Edward Gorey’s dense, quirky illustration (you can’t not fall in love with The Gashlycrumb Tinies, with its macabre whimsy and gleeful rhyming and depictions of ridiculously endangered tots) but I’m not sure that his line drawings add much to Heide’s already straightforward story-telling; her Treehorn trilogy finds young Treehorn in a variety of odd situations (I’m particularly charmed by The Shrinking of Treehorn), but her pragmatic approach set next to Gorey’s d [...]

    • Yarb says:

      I was familiar with "The Shrinking of Treehorn" - that Kafkaesque parable of juvenile insignificance. The inimitable art of Edward Gorey expertly augments Heide's deadpan prose in a story which captures the perplexity of being small in a vast, vacuous world.[return][return]What I wasn't prepared for was to find the two sequels every bit as good. Heide and Gorey create a magical-realist version of the 1950's, by turns nightmarish and quaint, in which our hero is buffeted by the impartial gusts of [...]

      When I requested these books I had no idea how wonderful they would be! I thought I'd receive a paper pack copy of all three books made into one book. So I was happily surprised when I opened the package and found a gorgeous box set with hardback copies. I love Edward Gorey's books and illustrations, it's really awesome that these are in my collection! All three books are about Treehorn, who has interesting adventures and oblivious parents. Poor guy can't win. I wanted to get in the books and sh [...]

      Read as research when considering new baby books for a pregnant friend whose son coincidentally shares a name with another Florence Parry Heide character . Gory's art was pattern happy and iconic. Reading through the books I was awed by the world while contemplative of the sadness felt for the neglected Treehorn. I wondered the author's personal history and connection to her character.

    • Cynthia says:

      I couldn't resist the complete series, especially Edward Gorey's understated illustrations. Poor Treehorn. His parents and teachers are clueless and distracted, but somebody is watching out for him. Treehorn manages to get what he wants in spite of ditzy parents.

    • Lisa says:

      Treehorn is a quirky kid who I really grew to sympathize with. Adults do not listen to him at all despite the amazing things go on around him. Picture book + magical realism = cool.

    • Voracious says:

      Not only did I like it, Oliver did too. He's seven, and having trouble finding things to read that are fun but not too hard. This fit the bill nicely.

      what a sweet read

    • Caleb says:

      Edward Gorey cross-hatches are always amazing. I think I would have liked these books more when I was 15.

    • Beckie says:

      Amusing. My five-year-old was non-plussed.

    • Tracy says:

      The Edward Gorey illustrations were amazing as always. The stories themselves weren't really "my cup o' tea".

    • Dave H says:

      Nifty stories of genies, shrinking kids, and money growing on trees (illustrated by Edward Gorey).
