This is a great story I discovered on my own as a young reader about siblings working together to make their own fun and the adventures they have. Of the many, many books I have read it is one I remember with smiles, which is why I wanted it to be in my own collection for my family.
Publishers Weekly, 2002-09-30 Welcome Back! Old favorites are being reissued in force this fall. Elizabeth Enright's Melendy Quartet follows siblings Mona, Rush, Miranda (Randy, for short) and Oliver. First published in 1941, 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. In The Four-Story Mistake (1942) the family moves from their city brownstone to the country; Then There Were Five (1944) describes what happens when the siblings befriend an orphan; and in Spiderweb forTwo: A Melendy Maze (1951), when everyone else leaves for school, Randy and Oliver are left to solve a mystery. The author's charming pen-and-inks punctuate all four volumes. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
Publishers Weekly, 1997-06-09 These favorites from the '40s feature the four Melendy children. In the first book, they pool their allowances so that each gets a turn to have a solitary adventure in New York City; in the second, an old country house becomes the site for further escapades. Ages 8-12. (June)
