Treehorn is definitely shrinking. His mother fails to notice as she’s more concerned with her cake deflating. His father, teacher, bus driver, and principal all give the matter little thought or notice, only admonishing him to, “sit up straight!” Poor Treehorn is left to sort out the mystery himself. An alarmingly funny story.
Equal parts hilarity and exciting adventure, this 1948 classic chapter book tells the tale of a boy on a quest to rescue an overworked baby dragon from an island bristling with wild beasts. The first in a trilogy that includes Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland.
