Using all their varied powers, can the Treehouse Heroes protect their new friend and restore the balance of nature?

Written by a Dark Horse comics editor and illustrated by a Star Wars: The Clone Wars animator, this fresh blend of adventure and lyrical art will excite young readers.

Reviews of Treehouse Heroes

"The story, wrapped in a beautifully illustrated fairy tale, is a good reminder to look for and protect the beauty of our natural world today. Find your town's Zez today and cherish and nurture it!"
- Thomas E. Richner, Associate Professor of Animation at The Columbus College of Art and Design

"The story and illustrations are awesome! I love the style of the characters. The smoke and fire have a life unto their own. The vibrant watercolors contrasted against the pure white backgrounds makes for some really interesting compositions. The moral of the story is nicely told with great illustrations. I think kids would really like this book."
- David Kury, Producer at LucasArts
