I have been looking all over for this book. I have been looking for literaly years. I wanted to have this book for when I have children of my own. I am 22 and my mom used to read this book to me all the time when I was little. I forgot the title and I thought it was called the house that ran away. I can't believe I found this book. I am so happy and look forward to reading it to my husband when I get it in the mail. I can't wait to share it with my kids someday.

Here's a message that every parent wants to send to their kid -- Clean up your stuff! The way P. E. King gets that message across is sheer brilliance. My daughter asks me to read this one over and over again. Then she just laughs and laughs and laughs. . .

This is a great story for children. I originally bought it for my son when he was little, to try to encourage him to clean his room. He loved the book and now so do my grandchildren. I wish it would be re-printed.

My tattered old copy from when my youngest was a boy is now hardly readable. So I wanted a new copy for my first grand child and I can't find it anywhere! Western, reprint it please!!!

A hysterical lesson in the old adage that cleanliness is godliness. My children loved it!

Purchased used, but it came in such beautiful condition. The packaging from the seller was very sturdy and it arrived right on time. I'm so glad to have this little gem back in my library after 25 years and now, my grandchildren are enjoying it as much as my kids did.

This is such a wonderful story about taking care of your home. I loved it as a kid and now my children love it too! Most of the reviews are from parents who remember this story from their childhood; that says something about how special this book is. :)

My mum read this to my me and siblings when we were younger and I never forgot this amazing book. It's the perfect children's book. It teaches you the value of taking care of your things and will give some lasting memories of your mum making the "pillow" voice when you're throwing them across the wall in college. This book was one of the best parts of my childhood.
