Publisher's Summary

The Vanderbeekers have always lived in the brownstone on 141st Street. It's practically a member of the family. So when their reclusive, curmudgeonly landlord decides not to renew their lease, the five siblings have 11 days to do whatever it takes to stay in their beloved home and convince the dreaded landlord just how wonderful they are...and all is fair in love and war when it comes to keeping their home.

Great book!!

I read this on a four hour plane ride, and loved it. I had accidentally purchased the Audible when I purchase the Kindle book, so my 4-year-old and 8-year-old just listened and loved the story. Loved how the kids get along with each other and their parents and worked together as a family.

Horrible narration, great story

I loooove the book but the characters voices are awful. The story is charming but Robin miles voice is rather hoarse. Wish I had found one better narrated.

great book!

This book was very interesting and had a great story. You only problem was that I got a little bit slow in the beginning but then it got more interesting. Overall I am going to say it was a great book.

A very sweet and entertaining story

The Vanderbeekers of 141st street is a sweet story with slight adventure and real feelings. My sister and listened to it via audio, and I feel it's directed towards a younger audience, say 2nd to 5th graders. The story was cute; with a few unexpected twists, while all the while sticking to the main theme: one family joined together by the near loss of their beloved home. I would definitely recommend giving this story a go.
