Description

Two new neighbours playing `Three Little
Pigs' discover that friends are what make
a house a home...
Clancy has just moved house. He is
missing his old house terribly - the new
house is much too big and much too
lonely. How will he ever make it his home?
As despair takes hold Clancy hears a
small voice. Soon, Clancy with the help
of his new friend Millie is building towers
to the sky and trains to the street outside,
and together they build the home that
Clancy thought he had lost forever.
`I love my new home,' says Clancy's
mother. `It's the best house.'
`It's a very fine dwelling,' says Clancy's
father.
`It's too big,' whispers Clancy.
