Julia's House for Lost Creatures by Ben Hatke

Julia is new in town, courtesy of her giant tortoise-house. She likes the neighborhood perfectly fine but thinks it is a tad quiet. To make things more interesting, she hangs a sign outside her door reading "Julia's House for Lost Creatures."

Soon, all sorts of magical beings appear on her doorstep looking for shelter. It starts with a patchwork cat, then a bridgeless troll follows. Once word spreads about the house, gnomes, dragons and mermaids start lining up outside. Before Julia even knows it, her humble abode has been overrun with a bunch of fairytale freeloaders. What is a harried hostess to do?
