|About the Book|
If you want to pretend youre shrinking, thats all right, said Treehorns mother, as long as you dont do it at the table. But Treehorn wasnt pretending. He really was shrinking, and that didnt make life easy for him as he become smaller by the moment. Treehorns teacher said, We dont shrink in this class, and sent him to the Principal. Poor Treehorn spends an unhappy day and night until he discovers a magical game that helps him solve his problem. With his usual tongue-in-cheek approach, Edward Gorey glorifies the many imaginings of the story in witty pen and ink drawings.
