Hughes, Jenny and Jonathan Bentley Audrey’s Tree House. PICTURE BOOK. Bloomsbury, 2015. $17.99
Audrey is getting big. She is bigger than she was yesterday. She asks her dad for a tree house with a winding staircase, a bathtub, a stove, tea spot and a bed. He finishes the project just in time for bed. As he is leaving the tree house, Audrey begins to have second thoughts on living on her own and finds many excuses on why she can’t stay in the tree house alone. Her dad reminds her that she does have a nice warm place with hot soup waiting for her inside their house. This is a cute story of kids wanting to grow up, but not quite ready to be alone. The characters are likeable and the illustrations are creative.
