There was a wee woman who lived in a shoe with her many wee children (their tiny pets, too). Six crammed in a bed, tangled up in a heap. Some wrangled, some dangled. Jack groaned, “I can’t sleep.”  What’s a mother to do? Why, find a bigger home, of course! Bouncy, enthusiastic Jill leads the way, but brother Jack warns, “There are giants out there! They will eat us for snacks!’’

Playful verse and whimsical pictures pull readers into this miniature family’s glorious adventure full of brave actions, comic mishaps, and the joy of discovering a perfect – if surprising – new home in a dollhouse.
