A picture story book with more text than usual- hence placing it in this category. Bright colored, detailed pictures, the kind children will enjoy searching for specific things -- in charming but rather conventional style (by Margaret Bradfield). The story tells of the little old lady who thought her house too shabby with the other houses brightly painted, so, with her motley household, moved from house to house. One or another thing seemed wrong -- and the cats and the donkey and the cow and the little old lady finally made the rounds and arrived back at their old home, the one that suited them best. And by then it too had been painted, by the man who had been given 900 buckets of paint. Good tale for group reading.
