This book would be a great title for children who have enjoyed The House By the Lake book 1 for our Year 5 Reading Gladiators 2021.
Trees are destroyed to make way for a house lived in by a father and his two children. The father spends all of his free time striving for the perfect lawn by removing anything that tries to grow while his children crawl about playing happily in amongst the wild trees next door. As time passes, the father is left on is own until he abandons the house. With no one wanting to buy it stands empty and nature, kept at bay for so long, takes over until the house has been occupied in a different way.
