The fog in Foggytown was so thick that people bumped into parking meters . . . and streetlamps . . . and each other
So Joey and Chloe's parents decide it's time to move. But Joey and Chloe love their house. And as it turns out, their house loves them . . . and has a very special and utterly fantastic way of taking matters into its own hands.
Comic- and picture-book star Mark Siegel has spun a delightful and compelling fantasy for young picture book readers, illustrated in a unique style that combines elements of traditional picture book, comic, and animation art.
“The title of Mark Siegel’s ‘Moving House’ contains its own morsel of verbal wit, with a double meaning that winks at the fanciful plot.” --New York Times “Both whimsical and meaningful, it speaks to a child’s powerful attachment to home.” --Booklist "In his authorial debut, Siegel's (Boogie Knights) background as an illustrator (and an editor) serve him well; his vignettes and spreads are drafted in clean ink lines, with watercolor washes of blue and red signaling the clean skies above Foggytown.” --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
