Summary
The streetscape is changing in 1930s city Australia. Digby and Claude meet up to create their own place, somewhere they both belong. They have adventures and make plans. But then the building site becomes full of trucks and Claude's parents stop him visiting his friend. However, when new families move into the new flats, Digby has someone new to tell his stories to. Non-fiction information at the back of the book covers housing styles and the different sorts of 'homes' we can have
Summary
One autumn, change came to Main Street. Digby's street is soon going to look different - old houses are going to be demolished and new apartments will be built. Digby loves Main Street but he isn't sure he wants it to change. With plans of his own and Claude, his new friend, Digby explores what it really means to belong. Together, Claude and Digby create their own world - a hideout where they can think and play. Day by day, as their cubby house grows, so too does their friendship. As the boys build and make their hideaway, they realise that the best places of all are places where you belong.
