Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Nine-year-old Patrick flies from his home in New York City to Maine to spend the month of August with his grandparents. This year, as a special surprise, his grandfather has built him a tree house. Unfortunately, Sammy and Seth, neighboring twins, quickly take it over and bully Patrick into submission. He and his friend Sarah think about telling Granddad, but first try to take matters into their own hands. They finally do enlist adult help, befriend the troubled boys, and share the tree house. Kroll's pacing is brisk and will keep youngsters turning the pages. The 14 short chapters with intriguing titles are punctuated by full-page black-and-white illustrations. Good fare for beginning chapter-book readers.-Lynn Cockett, Nutley Public Library, NJ
Mary Harris Veeder
Nine-year-old Patrick looks forward to a week alone with his Maine grandparents, but Granddad's surprise--a tree house--makes it even better. When two older, rougher boys down the road take over the tree house, Patrick and his friend Sarah don't know what to do. They don't immediately turn to adults for help. Instead, they amuse themselves with Granddad's ponies and wait for the problem to go away. Then, overhearing an adult conversation about the boy's mother's recent death, Patrick and Sarah decide the intruders need friends, not enemies. The conversion process is rather rapid, but young readers may be more interested in the ample details about ponies than in the conflict resolution.
