Of the: British nature
Synopsis: Francis Orme has lived in Observatory Mansions all his life. 7 other people (Francis Orme included) live in Observatory Mansions. Flat 18 is left empty until one day a note is found: Flat 18 To be Occupied One week

Comments: This book is so magical, so whimsy, so full of love, you'll want to read it in one sitting. All the characters are just slightly off, and the story itself is told from Francis' perspective. I recommend this book to everyone. It's fresh, witty and should be a classic. It's like a children's story for adults.
