In a quiet little lea, several miles out of town, a tree grows. It becomes home to sparrows, chipmunks, a whopping big bee . . . a runaway clown? Two poodles? An ape? Wait a minute. . . .
In his quirky but realistic style, Rex creates the greatest show on earth--or at least, in a tree. The surprising text is part word game, part counting game, and part mystery. The illustrations are pure, beautiful mayhem, loaded with boisterous energy and cunning little critters that readers will love to chase through the pages.

ADAM REX has illustrated several books for children, including The Dirty Cowboy by Amy Timberlake, which won a Golden Kite award, and the Lucy Rose series by Katy Kelly. He lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Kindergarten-Grade 3–This zany, rhyming, cumulative tale is carefully designed, humorously detailed, and appropriately silly. It starts and ends with a tree and features a colorful array of first woodland, and then escaped circus creatures that take up residence in its branches. A new font, including hand-lettering, announces each new arrival. Paintings created in oils and mixed media portray a jumble of animals cavorting across the pages, testing viewers' memory and visual skills. Budding artists and sophisticated fans of search-and-find books.–Debbie Stewart Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI
