Julia’s House for Lost Creatures by Ben Hatke. Julia’s magical travelling house has just settled into a new location by the sea. It’s a beautiful spot, but a little too quiet. Julia feels lonesome, so she goes into her workshop to makes a sign: “Julia’s House for Lost Creatures.” She posts the sign by her front door and waits. Before long, lost creatures of all descriptions begin to arrive: a patchwork kitty, a sad troll, a family of goblins, a dragon, a ghost, and some gnomes. All the house guests are good company, but soon Julia’s feeling overwhelmed with the amount of cooking, cleaning, and chores needed to care for everyone! Fortunately Julia is a good leader, and with a new sign, bit of work, and some proper organization, everyone begins to work together to make the House for Lost Creatures into a happy home. Even so, something is still missing… Julia will need to make just one more sign before her new family is complete. See this book listed in our catalog
