Dusty - The Dustball and Family

Dusty heard the sound of the bulldozers arriving to demolish the old house he and his family had been living in. There was a broken toy fort in the basement which Dusty and his family had called home for some time. As the sound of the bulldozers grew closer, the dust ball family caught a stiff breeze and floated out an open window, hoping to find a new home. The Dust Ball family will have the adventure of a lifetime as they discover a forgotten dollhouse in the attic of a nearby house, which could prove to be a perfect new home. But they must first meet the family who lives in the house, figure out a way to communicate with them and hope they will be allowed to stay. This is a story of love, acceptance and a truly unique friendship, above all.
