The old house is lonely because it has been empty for so long. Its friends try to cheer it up, but the house seems to prefer self-pity. Its droopy shutters and sagging front porch discourage all buyers?until the day a certain family comes to take a look. While the children see lots of potential for good times, the mother and father see a lot of work ahead. Will the house pull itself together in time to impress them, or will it be condemned to more unhappiness? This story about the deep connection between family and homestead will resonate with readers young and old.
