1 But this is a funny house for all it's so grand.
2 She had never thought there could be so many in any house.
3 But when you're in the house don't go wandering and poking about.
4 Here was another locked door added to the hundred in the strange house.
5 Mary felt lonelier than ever when she knew she was no longer in the house.
6 He lives in a great, big, desolate old house in the country and no one goes near him.
7 But no one came, and as she lay waiting the house seemed to grow more and more silent.
