Elizabeth | 3 comments This was a picture book mostly likely published in the 1970s about a large family that lives in a treehouse. Does anybody have any idea what the title could be? I am having no luck in locating it.

Thanks,
Elizabeth

Elizabeth, who are the members of the family (and their ages)? Are there animals in the story? What are the parents' jobs/skills?

Why does the family move into a treehouse? In which country?

Can you describe the illustrations - realistic/cartoony/cute, simple/detailed, painted watercolors/bold graphics, sunny/dark/muted colors/black & white? Do they remind you of another illustrator or picture book author?

A long shot - The Tree House Children: An African Tale by Carolyn White?
