    Enterprising children, rabbit, dog, (and kitten!)

    The story stars the enterprising children of the Vanderbeeker family and their dog and rabbit. Even a kitten shows up. This charming story shines with a vivid setting: warm family relationships in a friendly street in Harlem (New York City). There are quite a few characters in this book so it pays to read a bit slowly, with enjoyment, to keep them all straight. I didn't try a read-aloud because my kids are too big, but I think it would be an excellent bedtime read. There's enough action to keep it exciting and enough comfort to sleep well. The threat of moving to a new place, music, neighbors, pets, friendship, and a first dance. It feels like the beginning of an enjoyable series. The feel of this book reminds me of Jeanne Birdsall's THE PENDERWICKS and the beloved Melendy family in Elizabeth Enright's THE SATURDAYS.

    AWESOME BOOK!!!

    I love this book so much because it gives me a taste of Drama, Action, and Mystery. Since every character in this book is so different even though their siblings, it keeps you interested all the way through by changing prespectives. I literally read this book in two hours straight.
