The strange story of young Nellie who has to tidy up her aunt's cottage before she returns from her holidays! Her aunt's place is infested with cats and live dolls though, and they all mean to keep it as messy as it is. So Nellie has to deal with all their dirty tricks as well as cleaning up. Margriet Heymans's charming pictures are filled with hundreds of rustic objects and patterns that make up the old cottage together with the bizarre looking dolls and cats. The detail in the work is amazing.
