It's a lovely dollhouse, with three rooms upstairs and three down. Sometimes we can move-- a little-- but The Laws of Wood say we cannot move when either Boy or Girl is around....
Emma and her family are wooden dolls living a secret life inside their dollhouse. Tired of her small world, Emma wishes to go outside, where there is something called a tree and millions of tiny lamps light up the sky. More than this, though, she longs for an adventure, even though she doesn't really know what an adventure is.
Emma soon finds out, when disaster strikes the dollhouse and she must learn to be brave. Emma's great adventure leads her to discover a new place and an inlikely friend along the way.

Girl took me outside today
and put me by a purple leaf.
A snake stared with eyes of glitter,
and Girl ran away.
When I awoke,
darkness was floating down
on the garden,
catching on petals,
covering my face like a cold blanket.
Then lights turned on in the sky
like lamps in a faraway ceiling,
and I saw they were pictures:
someone dancing, a fish leaping,
and a road like white dust shining.
When Girl came, I was said to go inside
where there are no pictures
on the ceiling.
