Nicholas wants his "own place": he feels cramped in his house, his yard, and his room, which he shares with his younger brother, who valiantly creates a space that Nicholas can call his own. Newly emergent readers will be seduced by McPhail's unmistakable sketchy-line-filled art recalling Sendak at his cheeriest. Two rather tired activities are appended.
