Dad, Let’s Build a Tree House!

Isä, rakennataan maja

“Wow, finally somebody has cleaned up this house!” says unsuspecting Dad, coming home from work.

As Dad sits down in his favourite garden chair, he realizes why the house looked so clean and uncluttered. The furniture is piled in the middle of the yard, with his children running up and down the slopes.

Nervous breakdown and heart attack are looming close, when Dad’s neighbour convinces him that this is the perfect time to build a tree house, since all necessary items are already out and in a neat pile. Dad and the neighbour get a bit carried away, and the kids have no choice than to build a tree house of their own. Their materials include a cardboard box and sawdust. What fun!

But what to do with two tree houses? How does Dad end up sleeping in the children’s cardboard box? And what does Mom think when she comes home that night? This is the third book in a series by Markus Majaluoma, a renowned Finnish graphic artist. The foolings around of Dad and his kids give new meaning to the concept of ‘quality time’.

The book depicts the joys and sorrows of family life, with a wealth of realistic yet humorous observations.
