Item description for My House (Contemporary Picture Books from Europe) by Delphine Durand & Sarah Adams...
Overview Although a house is not fancy on the outside, inside it contains a wealth of interesting--though imaginary--people, animals, and monsters.
Although the outside of the house in this story isn't fancy, a myriad of funny adventures await once inside. Those who actually live in this place—the flumps, the sausages, the megas, and maxis—are all there to say hello. Despite their differences, they all get along in their crazy, higgledy-piggledy world. Zany humor and intricate drawings are skillfully combined to surprise and entertain the whole family.

My Map Book
"My house isn't fancy on the outside. Really nothing special at all - come in - "
This is not a book to read exactly (well, at least not to a crowd), it's a book to pour over and over, preferably with someone who shares your sense of humor. The pages of MY HOUSE are jumbles of rooms full of interesting, endearing, strange characters - "people", if you can call them that (Mr. Nozitall, Mrs. Fishyscales, Badhairday, Mega-Ugly and Maxi-Foul, et al), animals (large, small, invented), flops, flumps - who appear throughout this plotless book. It's sweetly bizarre and incredibly funny in a quirky sort of way, for readers who like author/illustrators such as Maira Kalman, Sarah Fanelli (hmmm... who am I missing?). Every inch of every page is full of tiny, amusing details, painted in rich colors with occasional collaged bits. For ALL ages.
