Come by Chance (Walker Classics)
This is a warm and tender tale of friendship, compassion, generosity and hospitality. One day Bertha comes upon a tumbledown house on a hill. She sets to work with her hammer and nails, her brush and broom, to make the house a cosy home. Bertha names it "Come by Chance" and settles in alone...until one night a storm brings a host of animals to her door, looking for shelter, and bringing friendship and song and dance, to make merry the long winter ahead.
