In The Treehouse is the story of two brothers – one older, beginning to create a life of his own, the other younger, left more and more on his own.
Before, the two brothers were inseparable. Now, little bro hangs out in his treehouse, alone: “So now I’m the king of the castle. I can do whatever I want up here.” It’s boring, though.
Until one summer night, the power goes out. “The night sky is filled with stars, more than I can count.” And that one event brings his big brother back to the treehouse for an evening.
This is a beautiful children’s book (words by Andrew Larsen, pictures by Dušan Petričić, 2013). It’s on Lennoxville Library shelves (at C-68) thanks to Lilian Rider. Rider “bought” the book – donating its cost to the library – during a past Adopt A Book campaign. Our volunteers collect up great reads and, this year, will show them to you on Thursday, October 1, 2015, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. You “buy” a book and get to read it first! Then it’s placed on our shelves for all to read.
Your book becomes a gift to your neighbours and your community. Please come by Thursday for Adopt A Book.
Can’t make it Thursday? The books will still be on display Friday and Saturday. We’d love to see you.
