Synopsis: After trying to live at a number of places four children and their pets return home

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 2-Youngsters who have found fault with their living conditions will revel in this story of three siblings who leave home to seek more exciting housing. They love life in their tree-until they fall out of it. Similarly, in each new residence-they subsequently try a pond, a cave, and the sea-they are content until disaster strikes. They finally end up back home where their parents greet them with open arms. The text, originally published in 1969 (Coward, McCann & Geoghegan; o.p.), is delightfully lyrical, patterned, and filled with alliteration. There are "turrets and towers," "salty water and warm sea sand," and "seashells singing the songs of the surf." Cepeda's brilliantly colored oil paintings are filled with humor befitting the outlandish theme. The older girl and her two younger brothers, one of them wearing huge glasses, carry their meager belongings in a wagon, adding treasures as they travel. They hang upside down from tree branches, explore pond life with a spyglass, wear a mining hard hat in their cave, and use a metal detector at the seashore. The book is cleverly designed so that each disaster is uncovered with the turn of a page: "We liked our cave,...until we met the bears." Young readers will chime in on the "until" in gleeful anticipation. Be sure to give this gem a home.
