KIRKUS REVIEW

 Harry has come to look over a lot he's selling--his buyers plan a parking garage or a factory--but finds that the area already has plenty of tenants: a tree is an apartment house for birds; frogs and insects share the stream; children have built a tree house. Henry changes his sign: ``Occupied Lot. P.S. Every square inch in use.'' Didactic but not aggressively so. Reverting to his earlier cartoon style, Arnosky lightens the mood while still observing the wildlife with a practiced eye. (Picture book. 4-9)
