David Norton | 3 comments I am looking for a children's book that featured a young boy who periodically went to the junkyard to find new "treasures." His room got more and more full with all the junk he collected. His mother eventually implores him to get rid of the junk because he doesn't have room for it anymore. He ultimately builds some sort of storage shed out of the junk and begins collecting more junk to fill his new space.

David Norton | 3 comments I don't think that's the one. But that looks like one I'll have to check out.

David Norton | 3 comments I don't think it's Junk castle, because I remember it as being just one boy (not four children). And I'm positive it wasn't a HArdy boys book. I think the book was even featured on Reading Rainbow with Levar Burton.

Thanks for the thoughts!

David, are you still looking for it? Was it "Maurice's Room"?
