Overview

The Full House and the Empty House are very good friends— when they dance they admire in each other the qualities they lack within themselves. Even though the houses are different on the inside, it doesn't reflect how they feel on the outside. The bathroom of the full house was full of many bathroom-y things. There was a big bathtub with gold clawed feet, a sink shaped like a seashell, a hairbrush and comb made of bone,and cakes of lilac soap. In the bathroom of the empty house was just a toilet and a sink. In the evening when the two houses grew tired of dancing, they would rest on the hillside and look out at the world together.

Reviews

"It is a deceptively powerful, timely message in the guise of a quiet, old-fashioned package." —Kirkus Reviews

James, The Full House and the Empty House is certain to be an immediate and enduringly popular addition to family, elementary school, and community library collections for children ages 5-7." —James Cox, Midwest Book Review
