An empowering story about coming to terms with change through creative problem solving Lily's family is happy in their old green house at the end of the lane, but progress soon encroaches. When Grandma refuses to sell their home to developers, the city just builds around them. Soon their house is smack-dab in the middle of a multi-lane highway. As traffic rushes by day and night, Lily and her family begin to feel differently about their beloved home. Using crayons and a little creativity, Lily draws up a plan to keep her Grandma's home and leave the highway behind. With the help of the construction crew that brought change to their neighborhood, Lily and her family take to the sea in their green house and set sail for a new place to call home. Inspired by Chinese "nail houses" that end up stranded in a sea of construction when owners refuse to sell, this memorable picture book celebrates resourcefulness, negotiation (or problem-solving), and collaboration in the face of change.
