Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 1-A family of Moogees, piglike yellow creatures with spots and rolled-under noses, is searching for a new house. A realtor takes them to see a series of possible homes: a blue, castlelike affair with eight chimneys and a yukie-yukie tree, a green one with a statue-lined driveway, and a third in the shape of a wedge of cheese. Mama and Papa Moogee's complaints are expressed in two-line rhymes. "Of course, this house will never do./I'm not particularly fond of blue." The children's response is always, "Waa waa moogee doogee wee wee low lum!" With trepidation, the realtor offers a fourth house that turns out to be perfect. And with the successful sale, he figures out that the children's chant means, "We'll be happy anywhere/as long as we've got our family there!" How he does that is never made clear. The illustrations are spare, done with markers and black outline on a white background. Although the point of family togetherness is made, there's nothing special here to carry the predictable story.-Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library, MIα(c) Copyright 2011.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book about finding just the right house for a family. I gave this book 5/5 stars for multiple reasons. The illustrations are perfect with bright colors and fun characters. The text of the story is funny and easy to follow. I think this book would be great for any family about to move or even one that has recently moved.

Leslie McGuirk is my favorite children's author. Once again she created lovable, funny creatures that come to life on the pages of her books. The Moogees are out house shopping in this book. The book left me wondering where the next adventure will take these funny little Moogees.
