Description
Leslie McGuirk spins the story of a very particular family in search of a home, with lively verse and quirky illustrations.
The Moogees want very much to find a new home. Mama Moogee says, "We need a new place that is on the ground. It would be nice if it were round." Papa Moogee adds, "I d love to find a home with class, a nice wide yard, and plenty of grass." But the three little Moogies just scream, "WAA WAA MOOGEE DOOGEE WEE WEE LOW LUM " Mr. Ruru, the real estate agent, tries hard to help them find the perfect place, but the Moogees think all the houses are too blue, too expensive, or look like a piece of cheese. Will they ever find a house to call their own? As the Moogees discover, the family you share it with is the most important part
