Publisher's Summary

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. And though they are disappointed about leaving the city, the four children soon become absorbed in the adventures of the country, discovering the many hidden attractions that the Four-Story Mistake has to offer.
Don't miss the other titles in the Melendy Quartet.

Critic Reviews

"Enright has a quick eye for the unexpected, the amusing, and the beautiful in what might be just ordinary experiences." (The New York Times)

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 over and over. Thank goodness Pamela Dillman does a wonderful job narrating the story!
