In this debut picture book by award-winning artist Tim Lahan, a happy couple moves into a new apartment and is promptly visited by a steady stream of jolly uninvited well-wishersa baker, a basketball player, a cop, a weightlifter, and more. Soon, there are so many housewarmers that people begin standing on top of one another, creating a human house of cards. Just when it seems that the packed space will burst, a gigantic nose enters the scene and sneezes the building off the page. Bless you.
