Format: hardcover
Pages: 40

Once upon a time, a storm brought a small house into a large city’s square. It hung there, roof down
in the main square of the city.  The house hanging upside down looked really strange to everyone but
not to the family that lived in this house. In fact, they did everything the other way around: the mother
was happy with empty pictures on the walls and a bouquet of flowers in a rabbit’s stomach. Do you think
that living like this was dreary or maybe even difficult? Perhaps, but not to this family: the mother, the father,
and their little daughter. For the Strangers.
