ONCE UPON A TIME... A HOUSE

Dulce Rodrigues


This captivating adventurous story received Honorable Mention at the 2013 Hollywood Book Festival, and the French version was awarded a literary prize in France in 2004. Now available also in Chinese.

Somewhere in the middle of nowhere, that could be everywhere, a lonely House has one day the joy of seeing different guests come, one by one with the seasons, to build a new life: Mrs. Spider, Mr. and Mrs. Mouse, Mrs. Duck and her ducklings, the big gray and white Cat, the Ewe, even the Ants and the Bees… all of this little community shares the same place and lives peacefully together. Until one day this agreeable quietude is disturbed by the arrival of Man! What lesson must Man learn in order to become less selfish and more respectful of nature? A bitter lesson!.
