In the Tree House
Illustrated by Dusan Petricic
Kids Can Press, 2013
An evocative story about two brothers who are growing up (one faster than the other), an unusual summer night and a special tree house that proves childhood is not just a time but also a place.
I love this book because it was inspired by the Blackout of 2003. I always wanted a tree house. We weren’t the kind of family that built things. So, I waited until I was a grownup and built one out of words.
