Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763633860, Hardcover)From the unparalleled Henrik Drescher comes a wickedly funny story about the perils of runaway rivalry (with a happy ending).
McFig lives with his daughter, Rosie, in a lovely little cottage far away from anywhere big and important. One day, McFly and his son, Anton, buy the land next door. At first McFig and McFly hit it off big-time and build McFly a cottage modeled exactly after McFig’s house. But then the two start to add things onto their houses — a medieval tower, a second-story playroom — and soon McFig and McFly are in a lifelong competition to be bigger and better than each other. Where will all their obsessive one-upmanship end?
(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:45:22 -0400)
As neighbors McFig and McFly compete to see who can outdo the other in additions to their cottages, they become so involved that they do not realize McFig's daughter and McFly's son have grown up and fallen in love.
