There was a man named Henry. He moved into an old house. His neighbors didn't like his house because it was messy. There are a couple of funny parts in this book.

I liked this book because I think the pictures are good and I think the author did a good job writing the story and teaching a lesson. The lesson was that it really doesn't matter what your house looks like, as long as you are a good person.

My favorite part was when Henry moved into the house because he was funny. When I read the book I felt silly.

I recommend this book to K-4 graders. I think they would love it!
