Deep in the countryside lives an empty little house. She is lonely and sad, and would dearly like to be someone’s home. One day, she decides to find someone who would like to live in her. Who could it be? A dog? Or a fish? Or a bird? Or maybe even the homeless man Jim? Or someone entirely different? On the last page of the book, we find an illuminated window: it turns out the little house’s quest hasn’t been in vain, after all!
