Publisher's summary

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.

Critic reviews

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

"Elizabeth Enright's children are so real they seem to step right out of the pages to become one's closest friends. Don't miss them." (Chicago Sunday Tribune)
