 A one-idea story with a predictable conclusion but lots of intriguing details: As the reader progresses along a street of oddly shaped row houses inhabited by figures from folklore, storyland, and popular culture, sprightly verse enumerates the present neighbors and reiterates a refrain: ``Have they seen who's just moved in/Next door to us?'' A concluding foldout reveals the not-so-extraordinary new neighbors, a stereotypical nuclear family startled to find themselves surrounded by pirates, three pigs, King Kong, monsters, etc. Good pore-over fun.
