Return to Harlem's "wildly entertaining" family in this funny, heartwarming sequel. When catastrophe strikes their beloved upstairs neighbors, the Vanderbeeker children set out to build the best, most magical healing garden in Harlem--in spite of a locked fence, thistles and trash, and the conflicting plans of a wealthy real estate developer. While Isa is off at sleepaway orchestra camp, Jessie, Oliver, Hyacinth, and Laney are stuck at home in the brownstone with nothing to do but get on one another's nerves. But when catastrophe strikes their beloved upstairs neighbor, their sleepy summer transforms in an instant as the Vanderbeeker children band together to do what they do best: make a plan. They will create the most magical healing garden in all of Harlem. In this companion to The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street, experience the warmth of a family and their community as they work together to bring a little more beauty and kindness to the world, one thwarted plan at a time.

Quotes & Awards

  • "Glaser tackles the tough issues of loss, serious health crises, and urban gentrification with grace and authenticity.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The plot and endearing (and diverse) characters are reminiscent of the classics from the 1940s and 1950s but with refreshing and realistic attention to socio-economics at work…Perfect for individual reading while tucked away in a treehouse or as a family read-aloud.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Robin Miles’ vocal repertoire shines as she brings the Vanderbeeker world to life…Miles gives personality to each of the characters. Listeners will appreciate the spunk of the younger girls; the exasperation of the twins; the angst of Oliver, who feels responsible for the emergency; the respect of the once local bully; the gruffness of the building’s landlord, and more. A listening treat. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
