Mr. and Mrs. Polka-Dot are a young couple ready to settle down. With real estate agent Mr. Weevil, they search for their dream home. In this deliriously funny house-hunting marathon, the Polka-Dots view bizarre options: a moldy mushroom, a snail shell, a cork floating on the river, a crumbling sand castle, a rotten apple, an inhabited burrow, and a “loft-style” broken bottle. Will they ever find a nest? Davide Cali’s humorous story is made all the more hilarious by Marc Boutavant’s quirky characters and detail-filled illustrations that children will pore over again and again.
