Hill and The Rock by David Mckee

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Mr and Mrs Quest lived in a little house on the very top of a hill. People from all around came to visit and the view would have been perfect but for the rock that blocked it. Fed up with no view, Mr Quest decided to move the rock. He never expected what happened next!
