The little boy in this story lives in an apartment building. His parents think their home is too small, but he has never known anything different so he loves it. Since he’s small, it is just the right size for him. He is able to use his imagination to turn their living room into different things, like a pirate ship.
It was so cute to see this home from the boy’s perspective. He saw things differently from his parents. While they wanted more space, he liked that his friends lived down the hall and he had a whole park as his backyard. I loved that he lived in an apartment because most children’s books show kids who live in houses, even though many children live in apartments.
I really enjoyed this book!

My 6-year-old niece adores the book and it's characters! The illustrations are wonderful!
