Mr. and Mrs. Polka-Dot are a young couple ready to settle down. With real estate agent Mr. Weevil, they search for their dream home.

Davide Cali’s humorous story is made all the more hilarious by Marc Boutavant’s quirky characters and detail-filled illustrations that children will pore over again and again.
