Summary
A trilogy of classic tales for all ages featuring a little boy named Treehorn includes The Shrinking of Treehorn, in which a young boy who believes he is shrinking has difficulty convincing his parents and friends of his problem; Treehorn's Wish, in which he uses a genie and his wishes to turn his birthday upside down; and Treehorn's Treasure, in which the leaves on a backyard tree are transformed into dollar bills.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Three stunning Edward Gorey classics, available in one volume. Featuring a clever-but repeatedly ignored-little boy named Treehorn, these stories will delight readers of all ages.

In The Shrinking of Treehorn, Treehorn is clearly shrinking, and his parents aren't the least bit interested. Treehorn's Treasure shows what happens when the leaves on the backyard tree turn into dollar bills. And in Treehorn's Wish, our hero's parents neglect his birthday-but he finds a genie in a bottle, which changes things considerably. Treehorn's angst, and his whimsical schemes, come alive through Gorey's witty pen-and-ink drawings and drolly humorous text by noted author Florence Parry Heide. This beautifully-crafted, tongue-in-cheek omnibus is the perfect gift for collectors and fans of Edward Gorey.
