Mom, Dad, baby Bubbles, and Chum the dog fill the house with their vacuuming, shouting, banging, and barking. Quiet little Armstrong only gets in the way . . . until he climbs a ladder to the clouds for some peace and quiet. Jan Ormerod's vivid pictures float readers along on Armstrong's fantasy ride-and bring the story gently down to earth with Armstrong's noisy but loving homecoming.
