317N: A Man with Unoriginal Neighbors

Looking for a children’s (early reader?) book. I read it during the 1970’s but not sure when published. The story line is as follows: a man lived in a house on a street where all houses looked exactly the same. So he paints his house. Everyone paints the same color? He plants a bush. Everyone plants a bush. Not sure if that was the order of sequence as to what he did to make his house look different. I cannot remember the title.

  1. Sounds like Mr. Pine’s Purple House! And it’s actually the reason Purple House Press came into being, to reprint lost favorites. Needless to say, it’s back in print, with it’s original illustrations. There’s a sequel too…Mr. Pine’s Mixed Up Signs.
