A truly charming and imaginative story of four siblings who pool their allowances and take turns having adventures each Saturday afternoon. A friend is reliving her literary childhood & passing the books on to me - I can't believe I've never read them before! I hear that there are more from Elizabeth Enright - and I'm really looking forward to them!
I want to be a Melendy. Nevermind the fact that I am a 35-year-old woman and that they fictitiously lived in the 1940s. I want to hang out in "The Office," the Melendy siblings' attic hangout complete with a saggy sofa, a trapeze swing, a piano and shelves and shelves of books. I want to traipse around New York City when $1.60 could buy a serious adventure.
