From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3?Lucas has always dreamed of building the perfect house and the time has finally come to leave his apartment and do it. However, his site?an island?is small so the wood-walled bedroom must be built atop the stone-walled kitchen. The bearded, bespectacled man enjoys the project so much he stacks on several more rooms, capping the tower with a wind-chime room where walls are strung with bits of glass, smooth stones, and shells. Then Lucas and his cat want someone else to appreciate the beauty of it all. During a fierce squall, the tower is magically transformed into a bridge, bringing hoards of children to play and ending the man's loneliness. "Simply magical!" says Lucas. Gentle, luminous, nearly translucent watercolors perfectly portray the sea, the slightly eccentric builder, and the joyous ending. Fresh as a sea breeze.?Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE

This book is a classic and so much fun to read aloud with kids. The kids and I really love this book and was so happy to find it at a good price and in such great condition!! You must read this book to your children or just read it yourself.

I have not read the book, I purchased it as a stocking stuffer for my daughter. (She had it on her wish list.) We did a lot of our shopping for Christmas this year on Amazon, and it was a pleasure to do so.

The book arrived in good shape, quickly, for a good/great price and no hassles with traffic to go to the store.
