Julia's House for Lost Creatures by Ben Hatke

"Julia's houses came to town and settled by the sea."

(From the beginning, the idea of a moving house conjures up visions of Howl's Moving Castle and Baba Yaga's house. So I know this book will be good.)

Too quiet so she opens her home to lost/misplaces/displaces creatures among them are cats, trolls, Folletti (Italian imps), snail, mermaid, ghost, dragon, and goblins.

Too loud equals RULES.

Happily ever after.

Thoughts: This is a fabulous book. One of my favorites right up there with Dream Animals
