The Four-Story Mistake (The Melendy Quartet, Book 2)
Into the Four-Story Mistake, an odd-looking house with a confused architectural history, move the Melendy family - Mona, Rush, Randy, Oliver, Father, and Cuffy, the housekeeper. Though disappointed about leaving their old brownstone in New York City, and apprehensive about living the country life, the four Melendy kids soon settle into this unusual new home. Here, they become absorbed in the adventures of the country, adjusting themselves with all their accustomed resourcefulness and discovering the many hidden attractions that the Four-Story Mistake has to offer.
The Four-Story Mistake is the second installment of Enright's Melendy Quartet, an engaging and warm series about the close-knit Melendy family and their surprising adventures.
Written more than half a century ago (1941), The Melendy Quartet series unfolds with all the ripe details of a specific place and period but remains, just the same, a winning, timeless tale.
This series has been translated into numerous languages throughout the world, and the stories have been known and loved by many for generations.
Perfect for summer reading!
