In the woods there is an empty little wooden house, with nine neat windows and a red front door. When a little mouse decides it will make the perfect home, so do the other animals in the wood—a frog, a rabbit, a rooster, a fox—including a great big bear! Although the oversized bear isn't a welcome guest, when the house collapses, he may be the only one who can put it back together. Adapting a Russian tale for readers and listeners up to 8, Christopher Corr draws on folk art traditions but supplies his own luminous palette, resulting in charming fantasy images not unlike the art of Marc Chagall.
