Mr. Pine’s Purple House


Mr. Pine’s Purple House tells the story of Mr. Pine who lived on Vine Street in a little white house. But Mr. Pine had a problem. All of the houses on Vine Street were white, and Mr. Pine couldn’t tell them apart. He tried planting a tree and a bush, but then everyone got trees and bushes. Mr. Pine decided to paint his house purple. Then he would be able to tell which house was his! Mr. Pine bought purple paint and got to work on his house. Despite a few interruptions with brushes, ladders, baseballs, cats, and dogs, Mr. Pine ends up with his own purple house and a street full of homes as unique as the people who live in them.
