Description
Sometimes, living in a house can be tiresome. So these siblings pack a bag and take a hike, to find another place. From a treehouse to a raft, a cave to a sandcastle -- each place seems perfect to them. That is, until they tumble out of the treehouse, their raft sinks, they meet the bears who already live in the cave, and the tide turns them out of their sandcastle. Like Goldilocks, these three children search until they finally find the home that's "just right" -- the very house they left in the beginning. The house with Mom and Dad!

For young children, this lilting, silly book makes for a satisfying read aloud, and the illustrations, with their unusual palette and strong compositions, effortlessly bridge the gap between reality and fantasy.
