Sitting high in the branches of a tall tree in the forest, there is a den made from bits of wood, and rope, and Grandma's old parasol. But for one child it is much, much more -- it's a castle, a pirate ship, an igloo, a plane. 
A place to dream. 
Joyful and lyrical, This is My Treehouse observes the endless adventures our imaginations can take us on, and the sanctuary offered by a space to call our own. 
With tender text from award-winning author Guillaume Guéraud, and stunning visuals from graphic novel artist Alfred, this evocative story celebrates the playful wonder of childhood. 


'It's an ode to solitary play but there is no sense of loneliness. Like the text, the stunning illustrations evoke the wonder of nature and the imagination. A quiet lyrical book.'

'There should be more books like this.'
-- Kindling

'It truly encapsulates the joy and magic of childhood. A book to share the nostalgia of your childhood and to remind us to let our children be a little wild and free in nature.'
