Josh's Treehouse: A Captain's Adventure by Patti Bateman Tracey is a 34-page long story about Josh and his first treehouse adventure. When he goes to visit his grandfather, he is shown a brand-new treehouse he can climb and enjoy. And enjoy he does, because wonders await him when he reaches the top. Suddenly, everything around him changes. He is no longer in his grandparents’ backyard, but now he is the captain of a sailing vessel with a mission to save a princess and claim treasure as his reward. The adventure is filled with promise, color, and fertile imagination.
The artwork in the story is filled with detail and color, drawing the reader in. This really helps to move the story along and keep younger readers engaged. The details described in the story, supported by the pictures, make the book a memorable one. There is much to be said about stirring a child’s imagination, and a book like this opens the doors wide. For not only is this treehouse magical, but it also brings about an experience like no other. It brings the promise to the reader that if there is something like this only on the first day, what else is there? Opening a genie bottle? Climbing Mount Everest? The list can go on and on. The author has skillfully opened a portal that children can move through and create their very own adventures. Josh's Treehouse: A Captain's Adventure by Patti Bateman Tracey is a clear winner and I hope that she pens many more adventures for Josh. Highly recommended.
