With Father in Washington and Cuffy, their housekeeper, away visiting a sick cousin, almost anything might happen to the Melendy kids left behind at the Four-Story Mistake. In the Melendy family, adventures are inevitable: Mr. Titus and the catfish; Rush's composition of Opus 3; Mona's first rhubarb; Randy's arrowhead; and the auction! But the best of all is the friendship with Mark Herron, which begins with a scrap-drive and comes to a grand climax on Oliver's birthday.

Here is Elizabeth Enright's classic story of a long and glorious summer in the country with the resourceful, endearing Melendy bunch.

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

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."
