Mr. Thatcher has been working to build the perfect house. And working… and working…and so, by accident, the house grows and grows in size. But it never seems like a home. When a crowd of characters from his storybook neighborhood shows up looking for a place to stay, Mr. Thatcher cries, “It’s not perfect yet! You don’t want to stay here!” But he soon finds that what makes a house a perfect home has nothing to do with craftsmanship and everything to do with the friends and family inside it.
