* "The immersive plunge into another world brings to mind James Gurney’s Dinotopia and Chris Van Allsberg’s Jumanji, and it will engross children who enjoy taking their time as they explore fascinating new lands."—Booklist, starred review

"The book’s greatest strength is its vibrant, detailed illustrations that feature racially diverse children alongside a host of woodland creatures. The imaginative contraptions the children use, from trapdoors to telescopes, are particularly impressive; making marvelous use of color and light, Mylie has created a stunningly specific world.... An entertaining, immersive read."—Kirkus Reviews

"Like the best of Robert Louis Stevenson, Sterer’s worldbuilding is unmatched as he creates spaces where children and beasts dwell side-by-side.... Mylie surpasses the language, finding thousands of small corners to nest small creatures."—School Library Journal

"Dreamy feast for the imagination.”—Main Street Books (Davidson, NC)

"Every inch of space is filled with surprising activities and whimsical situations that will keep kids engaged and attention focused for long stretches of time. Just a winner all around.”—Warwick’s (San Diego, CA)

"This is a type of book that a child (or adult!) could spend hours poring over the intricate pictures. Filled with endless imagination, Treehouse Town feels like a modern picture book classic!”—Bookmarks (Winston Salem, NC)

"Snuggle up with a sweet story and illustrations that have stories of their own; this one is the perfect read-together."—The Southern Bookseller Review
