Rate this:
"Bella is very surprised one morning to discover her house has moved in the night - not a lot, just a little. Her parents are too busy to notice, but even they can't pretend it's not happening when they wake up a few days later to find their house on the banks of a lake. Night after night the house moves and the family wakes to a new location. It is all very mysterious. Bella discusses it with her beloved Grandpa, and he advises her to keep a close eye on thing. Heeding his words, Bella stays awake one night to try and uncover the house's secret. When all is quiet the house begins to move, faster and faster through the streets, and catching its reflection in the shop windows as they whizz by Bella discovers the house has legs - long hairy legs with knobbly knees and big feet. The house walks and runs, then settles back down before the morning. Each time it stops, it stops near water. When Bella realises that her room at the top of the house is built from Grandpa's old boat, she finally knows what the house is looking for. It seeks the sea. So Bella dons the captain's hat her Grandpa has given her and guides the house safely to the shore, where finally they are home. And sometimes, just sometimes, Grandpa and Bella take the house to sea.".
