Holger the fox is pretty angry at his friend Stein. All the clumsy oaf does is make noise and mess up the whole house, and now he has really gone too far! Then Holger has an idea: what would it be like if he lived here all on his own? He could put his feet up, read in peace whenever he wanted, and, above all, he could keep everything tidy. Holger seizes the opportunity, hoists the house onto his bike trailer and cycles off. But it’s not long before he discovers that, though the big house is now quiet and neat, he is very lonely without his friend... And does the house even feel like a home anymore?


  A story about a special friendship, with wonderfully unusual characters and wacky details

  Shows children in a humorous way that though we all need to be alone sometimes, it is a feeling of companionship and security that makes a house a home
