There are certain children's books that I claim I "bought for my children" when in fact I bought them for myself. "Whose House Is This?" by Graham Percy is one of those books – although in the end my kids loved it too.
I've always been a sucker for houses . . . real houses (quaint ones, tiny ones, cottagey ones), dollhouses, aquariums decorated like houses for their inhabitants, you name it. So when I see a book like this one, I know it's coming home with me.
Here's Ursula's home. Looks like she does her upholstery work downstairs and lives upstairs.
Here's Fred's place. I really think I could live here. His bed looks so cozy and I like his clothesline (and his cute dog).
This is the front of Ned's house. He's a naturatlist. Great location, Ned.
Here's Xavier, busy at his Xray Tech job. Geez - he needs a window so he can enjoy that view!
A favorite in our family was Debbie the Dancer, who wanted to be a prima ballerina, just like my Emma. I can tell this door has been opened MANY times by the worn edges.
Man, I love this book!
Now, the terrible news – I went to Amazon to find you a link and discovered that it is out of print! WHAT?! Well, that is just SAD. Although my copy seems to be worth a fair amount now, which is good for me I guess.
