Preview: Hear it

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. Hilarious complications result as he becomes more minuscule by the moment. Treehorn is a bit downhearted when his teacher says, we dont shrink in this class, and sends him to the principal. Poor Treehorn spends an unhappy day and night 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 turning faintly green. . . . An ALA Notable Book
