I thought I'd found a steal when I purchased a well-worn copy of this book in our library's book sale and boy was I right! I'm so glad it's still available for purchase, as I'm now going to buy some for grown friends and younger relatives. I can't imagine another illustrator providing pictures for this book. Gorey's style compliments the narration so well. An appealing choice for adults(esp.Gorey fans), yet the story feels as tho it's written by a child,as it is so in touch with their experiences. Children can relate to Treehorn's position, and hopefully their parents can learn a lil something about adults too!
