Walk with a girl as she climbs up to her apartment, passing her neighbors homes and envisioning the interesting lives they lead within. Musicians,... acrobats,... pirates?! Are your neighbors this cool?!

This is a great book for children who like to pore over silly, humorous, detailed images. There's also a hamster that can be found in each of the neighbor's rooms (a hint is given in the beginning with the "Lost" posters hung up by the mailboxes). The surprise ending is a perfect finishing touch. Ages 4-7.

Get ready for a tour of the most interesting apartment building ever! Seven floors, seven apartments, and seven truly unique families. Readers get the tour from a very imaginative girl as she travels up to her home on the seventh floor. Each family apartment is revealed in a vivid two-page illustration filled with so many details you'll think you're in an I Spy book! Her own family? She thinks they're boring by comparison, but you may think differently when you get to the surprise ending! Love it!

When I reach the fourth door, the light always shuts off...
...because that is the vampire's apartment.
