One day 多奇 receives an invitation saying "Come to my home to play! I stay at the top of a 100 storey building" with a map enclosed. He then goes on an adventure up this most amazing building high up into the clouds, meeting plenty of interesting characters along the way. He finally finds the Spider Prince at the top, and gazes at the beautiful stars.
In the other 2 books, 地下100层的房子 and 海底100层的房子, there are adventures in 100 storeys under the ground and under the sea as well. This bookset encourages kids to be imaginative, the sky's (or under the sea, underground's) the limit, to 100 storeys up (or below) and beyond!

Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!"

Head over to my friend Dinah’s blog for a 6 day lesson plan on 100 层的房子!
I bought this series because my 5.5yo son and 2yo daughter enjoyed the book 100层的巴士 very much. My son often talks about how he wants to build interesting buildings when he grows up, so I was sure he would be drawn to this series of books. True enough, he has been picking these books for his own quiet reading, flipping from page to page, looking at the little details in the illustrations. He has also been picking this book for bedtime story. Looks like these books will be his favourites for quite some time.
100层的房子，地下100层的房子，海底100层的房子 Hundred Storey Building Bookset
Stunningly illustrated and imaginative book set about three different houses which are 100 stories tall. With vertically oriented text, and read from front to back, the books take the reader on an adventure level by level of the house. It's filled with more pictures than text, and a storyline which is as rich in suspense as it is encyclopedic facts, covering topics from geography, geology, mathematics, and science. Probably best for a primary school aged child. It's Luka compatible, and beautiful quality.
