What will it take for a cynical older sister to realize she’s a born accordion player — with music in her heart?

Eugenia Lincoln is a practical person with no time for gee-gaws, whoop-de-whoops, or frivolity. When an unexpected package containing an accordion arrives at her house, she is determined to have nothing to do with it. But her plans to sell the accordion, destroy the accordion, and give the accordion away all end in frustration. How can Eugenia stop being tormented by this troublesome package? Might she discover that a bit of unforeseen frivolity could be surprisingly joyous?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Lorna Raver knows Eugenia Lincoln and her sister, Baby, from the inside out. She takes the narration from cranky to imperious to almost tender and back again with ease…Raver narrates with enthusiasm. Her narration is purposeful, carefully paced, and rich with the personalities of Deckawoo Drive, each with a distinctive voice. Saving her best for Eugenia, Raver’s voice is firm, no nonsense, and bursting with cantankerous opinions and a tone of decisive actions. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    AudioFile

  • “Believable (if eccentric) personalities, sophisticated vocabulary, and polished prose make this an inviting title for emerging chapter-book readers. Fans of this series and the earlier Mercy Watson books will be amazed by Eugenia’s partial redemption and delight that the results are merely temporary.”

    Booklist

  • The text is peppered with tough vocabulary for the more advanced independent readers in the intended age group, but the story also works well as a bedtime read-aloud for those not ready to tackle words and phrases such as ‘malevolent,’ ‘obtuse,’ or ‘diametrically opposed’ on their own. Eugenia’s need for routine and her intolerance of change and uncertainty will resonate with readers who experience life similarly.”
