The House takes a vacation

Book Cover
Average Rating
M. Cavendish Children,
Pub. Date:
After the Petersons leave for vacation, their house decides it wants to take a holiday, too! But the different parts of the house can’t agree on where to go. Finally, the sunporch suggests the house go to the beach. The basement refuses "to rise to the occasion," but the rest of the house follows the front door as it leads the way—and the house has a vacation that it will never forget! Adding to the appeal are Lee White’s oil and colored pencil illustrations, which bring this "home away from home" tale to a safe and sound conclusion.
