“It was the house at the end of Ladybug Lane, and to the Neatolinis it was a dream come true. They had left city life behind. “Good riddance!” said Mr. Neatolini. “Why, it made my clothes wrinkly just to walk out the door!” “That city was not neat,” said Mrs. Neatolini. When they moved to the house at the end of Ladybug Lane, the Neatolinis threw everything inside away to get rid of the clutter. They shampooed the walls and the floors till they were squeaky-clean. Then they went outside and vacuumed the grass and polished the flowers. Now the house at the end of Ladybug Lane was the perfect place for all the Neatolinis…all except one…”
