“We were tired of living in a house.    So we packed a bag with    sweaters and socks and scarves    and mittens and woolen caps.    And we moved to a tree....” So begins this whimsical tale of four small children, a dog and a cat who decided they were tired of living in a house. They try a tree, a pond, a cave and the seashore, but in each place something unusual happens to make them move on to the next place—and finally home. Each appealing moment and every small detail are captured by Doris Burn's original drawings from 1969.
