by Bonnie Verburg Illustrated by Mark Teague

Best-selling illustrator Mark Teague brings Bonnie Verburg's irresistible rhyming text that is brimming with animals and action to vivid life!

Here is the boy
up in the tree
where he built a house overlooking the sea.
Yes! This is the tree house that Jack built!
With ladders, swings, turrets,
and elaborate pulley systems everywhere —
animals chase one another
over, under, around, and through.
And then — the bell rings.
Where are all the animals going?


Readers will pore over every detail of Mark Teague's spellbinding pictures. And Bonnie Verburg's irresistible rhyming text leads readers to a soothing end of a wondrous day in the most exciting tree house ever!
