Kaline Klattermaster LOVES his mom. ADORES his mom. But his mom can be, well, a bit forgetful sometimes. A bit lax. A bit...CRAZY. For instance, she's a bit crazy when she leaves him in the tub for THREE HOURS. Or gives him a chicken leg for breakfast...or forgets that he needs to go to school. AND he's not completely sure his mother understands how time works.
She's been even a bit MORE CRAZY since his dad left. So it's a very good thing that the folks in Kaline's tree house are not so crazy. They understand him. They don't mind that he sometimes HAS to play his pretend bugle, and, of course, they are FULL of good advice on how to handle bullies.
His mom hints that the tree house is imaginary. Kaline is UNCONVINCED.
The New York Times bestsellingauthor of A Girl Named Zippy is delightedto introduce Kaline Klattermaster, a little boy who understands the importance of a few good friends -- make-believe OR otherwise.
