    The four Melendy children live with their father and Cuffy, their beloved housekeeper, in a worn but comfortable brownstone in New York City. There's thirteen-year-old Mona, who has decided to become an actress; twelve-year-old mischievous Rush; ten-year-old Randy who loves to dance and paint; and thoughtful Oliver, who is just six-years-old.

    Excellent for children and adults

    My family and I loved this book. I have a 10 year old son and a six year old daughter. We listen to audiobooks in the car, and some of them make us wa..Show More »

    Following up on the classic children's novel The Saturdays, Elizabeth Enright continues the engaging tale of the Melendy family (Mona, Rush, Randy, Oliver, Father, and Cuffy, the housekeeper) and their move from an old brownstone in New York City to a charming house in the country. Called the Four-Story Mistake for its odd look and confused architectural history, the house offers the Melendys wonderful quirks and surprises.

    Wonderful story and well narrated!

    Absolutely one of my most favorite children's books of all time. I read it and re-read it so many times as a child. Now my kids have listened to it ov..Show More »

    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.

    Delightful

    Wonderful, complex characters; and fun and engaging dialogue that rings true. My children (aged 5-12) and I were all spellbound. Every book in this se..Show More »
