The Treehouse: A Summer Staple
Authorstrator Elly MacKay creates the most magical worlds in her books. Her illustrative style of paper art in a theatre creates the most incredible illustrations and invites the readers to experience her stories instead of just reading/listening to them. Once again she has created the most beautiful world in The Tallest Treehouse her new book by Running Press Kids.
Two fairies want to have a fort building competition. In a tortoise and hare-esque story one takes his time and makes blueprints and plans while the other constructs willy-nilly in hopes of making hers the tallest. When disaster strikes, they learn to work together, each sharing the others strengths to create a beautiful treehouse they can share.
The stunning illustrations will bring you back to this book time and time again. There is so much to explore and see in the illustrations keeping the story fresh each time. The lovely message about planning and slowing down as well as working as a team and using everyone’s strengths also makes this a great story for sharing. There is a STEAM bent to it as well when we see the planning taking place, the blueprint drawing, the measuring and the artistry involved in creating a beautiful home
