Raves & reviews:

Praise for The Tree House that Jack Built:

* "...alive with brilliant colors and delightful pop-up-in-your-face figures, and imaginative details abound throughout: ingenious pulleys lift pineapples, a fan operated by a bunny using a foot treadle, and a cascading triple birdbath. Teague weaves his magic into every scene, making this a delight for incipient Robinson Crusoes." -Booklist, starred review
