The true story of the Boom family's adventures and fun as they live in a 90-year-old barn on 11 acres. An engaging book for the whole family to enjoy. Great read aloud.
Ten-year-old Milly had always dreamed of living in the country and owning all sorts of animals. So when her parents buy a piece of land and move their six children into a ninety-year-old barn Milly can't believe her luck.
But she never imagined that living the simple life would include mucking out a filthy water tank, gathering endless supplies of firewood, clearing the land and rescuing animals in a hundred year storm.
Nor did she expect to hear deep groanings in the night.
