With brightly colored illustrations by Veronica Walsh and story by Susan Chodakiewitz, Too Many Visitors For One Little House will surely charm kids and adults alike.
The story begins with the neighbors of El Camino Street who are comfortable and set in their ways. They don't like pets, kids, big families, noise and disruptions. So when the young family with three kids and a fish move in, the neighbors watch out for trouble. Their worst fears are realized when a large camper pulls up next to the little house and unloads the grandparents with prune juice, aunts and uncles with dirty laundry, teens with music, skateboards, and arms full of clothes.
But with the chaos, the neighbors find that guests also bring laughter, music, good food, and good cheer.
Lighthearted and fun, Too Many Visitors for One Little House is an enjoyable read. It's release is well timed to coincide with visits these upcoming holidays.
