Following up on the classic children's novel The Saturdays, Elizabeth Enright continues the engaging tale of the Melendy family--Mona, Rush, 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!

AUTHOR
Elizabeth Enright was born in Oak Park, IL, on September 17, 1909. Her stories do not hide nor dwell on the pain, conflicts and disappointments of childhood but celebrate the joy, pleasure and love that are families. In 1939, Thimble Summer was awarded the Newbery Medal. Gone Away Lake gained three top honors over the years. In 1957 the book received the New York Herald Tribune's children's Spring Book Festival Award. It was also a 1958 Newbery Honor Book. In 1963, the American Library Association named Gone Away Lake as the U.S. nominee for the international Hans Christian Anderson Award. In 1996, Enright was posthumously awarded a LLD degree by Nasson College.

NARRATOR
Pamela Dillman has recorded a wide variety of audiobook titles, both in the United States and in Great Britain. Her extensive film, television and theatre credits include over 300 productions on three continents.

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

Publishers Weekly
"Welcome Back! Old favorites are being reissued in force this fall. Elizabeth Enright's Melendy Quartet follows siblings Mona, Rush, Miranda and Oliver. The Saturdays kicks off the series and centers on the foursome's Independent Saturday Afternoon Adventure Club (I.S.A.A.C.), an allowance-endowed venture formed so one lucky Melendy can enjoy a solo sojourn each week."
