Description

This title is suitable for ages 5 to 7 years. Children experience the renowned Frank Lloyd Wright house that boldly cantilevers over a waterfall in the western Pennsylvania mountains through the eyes of the Kaufmann family's most beloved dog in residence. Beginning with the initial site survey, the loveable dachshund reflects on the myriad details that make the 'Big House' so special. Moxie and her siblings' preferred picnic site, the rock, becomes the foundation that supports the residence's dramatic design, and the grand fireplace built around the big rock provides a warm stone where the dogs nap whenever they want. A table that can be stretched out so that as many as 18 of their friends, such as artist Peter Blume and his German shepherd Manfred, can sit down with the K's to eat dinner is so portable it can be moved to wherever they'd like. The dachshund's long, straight backs are reflected in the horizontal lines of the house - long, low tables; shelves; bands of glass in the windows - and built-in desks hang out from the walls like a diving board.
