Short people got no reason to live Randy NewmanIt beginsSomething very strange was happening to Treehorn The first thing he noticed was that he couldn't reach the shelf in his closetA little laterMy trousers are all stretching or something said Treehorn to his mother I'm tripping on them all the timeThat's too bad dear said his mother looking into the oven I do hope this cake isn't going to fall she saidOther adult reactions We'll let it go for today said his teacher But see that it's taken care of for tomorrow We don't shrink in this classAnother teacher Just because you're shrinking it does not mean you have special privileges I absolutely adore this book published in 1971 which I may just have read for the first time somewhere around then I almost cannot imagine anything uite like it correct me if I am wrong today Maybe Lemony Snicket is a kind of descendant With deadpan humor by Florence Parry Heide and deadpan drawing by the amazing Edward Gorey this is a treat The story is about a boy who is literally shrinking while adults parents teachers go on their merry dull way oblivious concerned with what adults are concerned with work order baking dusting A solution presents itself let's say but the ultimate problem of Treehorn's being ignored by the adult world goes on I almost wish a solution had not come about The story becomes almost conventional than I wanted it to be because of that Maybe wasn't necessary The only weakness I perceived If Gorey had also written it the ending would have stayed as strange as the beginningStill the overall effect is humorously flat matter of fact and slightly macabre especially in Gorey's capable hands It's a small and pretty short picture book with an exuisite illustration on every facing page And definitely drily hilarious A sort of lost classic I read an old dustymusty library copy in 2016 that hadn't been taken out in years but then I found a copy in a used book sale Same musty smell that somehow fits Gorey

I'm giving this 4 stars because my older nephew was over and began reading this and kept telling me what an excellent book this was and I had to read it He told me I was going to love it This odd little story is about a boy named Treehorn and he wakes up and realizes he is shrinking one day Eventually he figures out why It is an odd little story and I have to say it doesn't put adults in a very good light Adults were too busy in the book to pay attention I got this book due to the art of Edward Gorey I do love this gothic style I did enjoy this story not as much as my nephew but I did enjoy it I still love the art work I never heard of this book as a child Too bad It's uirky and I would have enjoyed it Anyone into a little different style books will enjoy this

The Shrinking of TreehornIght until he discovers a magical game that restores him to his natural size This is a great relief to Treehorn before he notices that he is The Shrinking PDF turning faintly green An ALA Notable Boo. My local library is full of surprises in the form of funky old books In the children's section I saw a title that instantly struck my fancy The Shrinking of Treehorn by Florence Parry Heide When I pulled the book off the shelf and saw the distinctive Edward Gorey illustration I knew I had to read itLiterally the book is about Treehorn who one days for no apparent reason begins to shrink He can't get any adult to listen to him when he says he's shrinking His parents get annoyed that he can no longer sit up properly at the table and that his clothes no longer fit The bus driver can't understand why he's no longer able to get on the bus easily The school principal thinks he's just doing it to break the rulesBut there's another side to the story As Tristen a third grade reviewer points out Treehorn is seeking attention He like so many children is ignored by the adults important in his life His shrinking is an outrageous act to get them to notice Treehorn is a child living a parallel life to his parents They pay attention to him only when he is part of their routine family meals bedtime and the likeTreehorn though doesn't find a single sympathetic adult Like so many children he has to solve his own problem The solution is similar to the ending of Clifford the Small Red Puppy The book closes with Treehorn faced with another unusual problem and deciding not to mention it His parents don't even notice anything is wrong
