Personally I wouldn't let children anywhere near this book - it's far too good for them ! A series of sumptuously illustrated (and furnished) rooms in a rather 'up market' Edwardian villa.
Each page is full of hidden flaps and doorways giving access to other rooms or pieces of furniture. The rooms are populated by 25 cardboard cut-outs of the family , servants , pets and 'period details' - all carefully designed to get lost or bent. If you can find a copy that's more or less complete and perfect it will probably appreciate faster than your own house. But don't let the kids get their grubby little mits on it !
