Description
There was a crooked man who lived with a crooked cat and a crooked mouse all together in a little crooked house. Their happy existence is unsettled by a noisy train that passes close by each day, shaking the house and its inhabitants: "Shucka-shucka, shucka-shucka, shucka-shucka!" Literally refusing to stand still for this, the crooked house does the unthinkable! This charming picture book, with its whimsical image of a moving house and the repeated refrain of "Yippee-yi-yay!," encourages young readers to interact. Jonathan Bentley's vibrant watercolor illustrations add to the fun.
