Summary
Bella is very surprised one morning to discover her house has moved in the night - not a lot, just a little. Her parents are too busy to notice, but even they can't pretend it's not happening when they wake up to find their house on the banks of a lake. Night after night the house moves and the family wakes to a new location. Unless Bella can solve the mystery, who knows where they'll end up?
Summary
Bella discovers one day that the house in which she lives, which was built in part by her grandfather, moved during the night, and soon learns that it gets up on its long legs and walks around, leaving the family in unexpected places at dawn
