Groundwood Books
Ages 4–8

When Russell asks his dad to build him a tree fort, his dad tries his best and builds him a quaint fort without all the bells and whistles Russell imagined. He also never expected a better one would be built just three houses away. At first envious of the neighbour’s fort, Russell quickly realizes that there will always be a better tree fort, but the bond between father and son is unbreakable. Local author Jessica Scott Kerrin debuts her first picture book along with dreamy, watercolour illustrations from award-winning designer and illustrator Qin Leng.
