A dreamer’s tree house.
A mechanic’s cottage.
A submerged city.

In Houses with a Story, more than 30 imaginative houses and the people who make them home offer unexpected worlds to wander through and explore. Who is the mischievous bridgetower keeper? What does the witch grow in her garden? How does the postal worker tame his delivery dragons? In each house, readers discover the contents of rooms and closets, what’s at the top of the stairs, and where shadowy hallways lead. Story text provides background and details about the lives of the residents and hints about their past and future. Featuring lush illustrations, diagrams, and detailed descriptions of each character, the homes’ locations and landscapes open doors to whimsy, wonder, and endless possibilities.
