A wonderful Bill Peet book with lovely illustrations
including the story in rhyme.
The moral of the story is to do your job,
be happy where you are, and be thankful.
... "Whenever she passed through a small country town,
Katy wished she could stop and just settle down
And be one of the houses who sat in a row
On a tree-shaded street and have no place to go,
'It's so restful,' thought Katy, 'where one can relax,'
As she hurried and scurried on down the train tracks."...
