The illustrations are wonderful and Beepo is an inventor who does not want to work in the Paris underground. He inherits a house and they all work night and day to restore it.
When it is finished two men tell them they have to leave as the government want to build a block of flats in its place.
They try to battle by scaring the workers away but this fails and they end up climbing into space.
This is one of my favourite books from my childhood and now my young children love it also despite it very travelled and tatty state!
And it looks at development and over crowding of population - a topic hotter now than ever before, so very relevant to both children and adults.
I highly recommend this book. It should definately be brought back into print.
