Young Treehorn is droll and determined on his birthday when he meets a bored genie with three wishes to dispense. The author deliberately and successfully creates adult characters whose communication through clichés balances Treehorn's naïveté. Heide's sophisticated wit is matched with Gorey's patterned images and humorous extensions of their third totally original, unusual Treehorn tale. The author lives in Kenosha, Wisconsin. (Ages 7-12)
