Told in the first person with the charm of Sesame Street's There's a Monster at the End of this Book. The storyteller takes us on a tour of a charmingly offbeat house, trying to show us that the only thing strange about this house is that there is a Hoppleplop living there. Each spread shows a room with a strange creature going about its business but each differs from a Hoppleplop in some way. Each right-hand page features a door leading to the next room to be visited. Eventually we find a tiny wee creature hidden in an eggcup in the kitchen. It features all of the attributes of the other creatures plus its own individual characteristics - and it's fast asleep.
