When Julia and her walking house come to town, she likes everything about her new neighborhood except how quiet it is! So Julia puts a sign up: "Julia's House for Lost Creatures." Soon she's hosting goblins, mermaids, fairies, and even a dragon. Quiet isn't a problem anymore for Julia...but getting her housemates to behave themselves is!
Love it - love it - love it! We got this in the mail two days ago and have already read it five or six times. This is a really sweet picture book with a short but wonderful story filled with amazing artwork. The pictures are truly lovely! We were still picking out details last night. Plus there are several morals gently wrapped up in here.
We pre-ordered this book because my daughter and I both loved Hatke's Zita the Space Girl series. Obviously a short picture book is not going to have the depth of a graphic novel but it is perfect as a bedtime book for my daughter (she's six).
So cute! Five claws.
