:: The story
Written by Japanese Author,Toshio Iwa, the story heads off to a mysterious start when Tochi (多奇), receives an invitation to a 100-storey house. With the invitation comes a trail of questions and thoughts - 这是谁写的呢？(Who wrote this?) 这里以前明明没有房子呀。(The house certainly did not exist previously.)
He soon discovers that there are many tenants in this house and every 10 storeys comes a set of animals / insects as tenants.
When Dumpling and I first read this together, we had to stop at level 40 and call it a night as it was bedtime. The next morning, immediately upon waking, Dumpling grabbed the title and turned on the light to read on. She was most anxious to find out who the mysterious host was. :)
The illustration in this title is quirky and fun. Every 10-storey has its unique features in what is a suitable home for the tenants. From foliage for the family of frogs...
Certainly a delightful read for children, this title is wonderful as a read aloud for children from 2YO. To read independently (though font size is a tad small), I would think that it is suitable for 6YO onwards. Regardless of which age group, I'd imagine your children will have loads of fun following the various scenes from each storey and to finally being able to discover who the host is. :)
