The Lovereading4Kids comment

An easy-to-read adventure with a delightfully entertaining story. Fang and Honey, just two of the good friends who live in Buffin Street, are set to move. Their owners want a house with a garden. What on earth can the animals do to stop them? Luckily, the Buffin Street animals come up with a clever plan involving a bit of trickery and a lot of animal activity which leads to a very satisfactory conclusion.
