    " I listened to this on cd while driving to Abq-it was very cute and fun and made the trip go fast. I'd like to read it to my boys-they would love all the hijinks! It sort of reminded me of Cheaper by the Dozen. "

    " Charming vintage children's book about a family in the early 1900's. This book reminds me of the Betsy-Tacy series and also the more recent Penderwicks books. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will read the rest of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 1/26/2014

    " This book was more like separate tales about one family rather than one comprehensive story. I don't usually prefer that in books. I like a plot that connects each chapter. However, it was still a cute story. "

About the Author
Author Eleanor Estes

Eleanor Estes (1906–1988) grew up in West Haven, Connecticut, which she renamed Cranbury for her classic stories about the Moffat and Pye families. A children’s librarian for many years, she launched her writing career with the publication of The Moffats in 1941. Two of her outstanding books about the Moffats—Rufus M. and The Middle Moffat—were Newbery Honorees, as was her short novel The Hundred Dresses. She won the Newbery Medal for Ginger Pye.
