An amusing tale, which demonstrates why you need to find out about the neighbourhood before buying a house anywhere. Although to be fair, Mr Busy built his own house in two days, so perhaps Mr Slow had too little time to react to it!

Mr Busy is the neighbour from hell: not content with rushing through his own life, he actively seeks out others to inflict his personality on.

My children loved the dynamism of the story counterpointed with Mr Slow's reaction, however they did say they wouldn't like Mr Busy to come round and wake them up!
