    Working in Gleebooks means we see an unusually high amount of new books. Many of them are good, some are fabulous, and occasionally some are SENSATIONAL. This picture book by a young American illustrator, Brianne Farley, rings every bell for me, proving there are some original, imaginative young illustrators out there who like to draw for children, not just assemble images and textures. After being sent outside to play by their mother, a younger sister is trying to persuade her older sibling to stop reading a book, and come and play with her. She tries to entice her sister with the promise of a secret tree fort, it gets bigger and better by the moment, culminating in the most fabulous castle in the air, there are pirates and a secret tunnel, and the whole fort is made of sweets. This is a book about so much more than an imaginary fort – it’s a testament to imagination and play, childhood relationships, and ultimately about the bond between siblings. The drawings are perfect to carry the story, detailed and amusing, drawn with a deft but light hand. I love this book! (ages 5+) LP
