Alison's House by Maxine Trottier, Michael Martchenko
Alison loved her little house and her big family, but when the new baby came along, there just wasn't enough room any more. Her parents thought enough was enough and decided to move. Everyone cheered. Everyone except Alison. "You can move. I love it here and I'm never going to leave." That's what Alison said.
