This book is a short children's version of an old Scottish folk song about Lachen MacLaclan and his family who always have room for visitors in their home. They keep letting visitors in until their house bursts. But, all is set aright by the end of the song, the music also being provided in the book. And, children always seem to like to sing. The illustrator, Nonny Hogrogian, won the 1966 Caldecott Medal for best illustrations in a book for children.
