If only Toots hadn't been so angry with her father. If only she hadn't run home by herself. If only she hadn't seen the fairy on the ceiling. . . .

But then again, if things had been different, Toots's whole world wouldn't literally have been turned upside-down. And she would never have had the most amazing adventure. . . .

A rare, special book, Toots and the Upside-Down House combines fantasy and adventure with the real, everyday issues of love and loss. This is a dazzling debut novel, one that children--and parents--will return to again and again.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
