The Shrinking of Treehorn is a children's book by Florence Parry Heide, illustrated by Edward Gorey and first published in 1971. The main character in the book is Treehorn, whose parents barely notice when he shrinks.
Treehorn is a young boy who begins shrinking after playing a strange board game. Treehorn discovers that he is getting smaller, when he cannot reach the gumballs and candy bars he has hidden on a previously accessible shelf. When his parents comment on it, they say, "Maybe he's doing it on purpose, just to be different." In the end, Treehorn returns to his normal size.
