Listener Opinions

    " The kids loved it. E played along with the clues. We tried to solve the puzzles along with Randy and Oliver. Good family read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amber | 1/23/2014

    " This was a departure from the style of the first Melendy books but was just as enjoyable. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy the scavenger hunt that Mona and Oliver were on but as the story progressed and developed into the little side stories of other characters I enjoyed it more. The end of the hunt was truly delightful and was a wonderfully heartwarming end to this book as well as the quartet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/8/2013

    " The last Melendy book was my least favorite. Much like how I didn't enjoy the Narnia books quite as much once some of the characters had grown up, similarly, Spiderweb for Two is missing something due to several of the characters having grown up and out of the story. "

    " i grew up with a well-read set of the first three books in the melendy quartet. it wasn't until last month that i stumbled upon book #4; it was tantamount to discovering that Tolkien had written a fourth Lords of the Rings, or that Rowling had an eighth book lurking in the Harry Potter series. "

    " I love the Melendy Series. Elizabeth Enright is one of my favorite children's authors.
