With Father in Washington and Cuffy away visiting a sick cousin, almost anything might happen to the Melendys left behind at the Four-Story Mistake. In the Melendy family, adventures are inevitable: Mr. Titus and the catfish; the villainy of the DeLacey brothers; Rush's composition of Opus Three; Mona's first rhubarb pie and all the canning; Randy's arrowhead; the auction and fair for the Red Cross. But best of all is the friendship with Mark Herron which begins with a scrap-collection mission and comes to a grand climax on Oliver's birthday.

Here is Elizabeth Enright's story of a long and glorious summer in the country with the Melendy family. Download and start listening now!

    " The Melendy's adopt a young boy called Mark and this ensuing novel finds Mark a place to call his own. Charming writing. "

    " Very very very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Delude | 2/7/2014

    " If I could rate this book ( and the whole series) 10 stars I would. I found this little known gem when I was about 10 years old in my small town local library where I made a challenge to myself to read as many of the books in the children's section as I could. As an adult - I have given this series of books to so many of my nieces and nephews and have made my grown up siblings read them as well. The kids adventures are simple and exciting and keep you drawn in to every second, These are one of the main reasons that I fell deeply in love with reading and how you can escape into it. "

    " the melendy children - mona, rush, randy, and oliver - are perhaps my favorite figures in children's literature. these wonderful books from the 1940s have been recently re-released. "

    " The third book in the "Melendy Family" series by Elizabeth Enright. It's one of my favorites from that series, and again is an excellent children's book. I highly recommend it, but suggest you read the first two books first to get the idea of what is going on. "
