Come meet the four Melendy kids—Mona, Rush, Randy and Oliver! With Father in Washington and Cuffy, their housekeeper, away visiting a sick cousin, almost anythin 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 pie; Randy's arrowhead; and the auction! But 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 the third in Elizabeth Enright's classic children’s series telling the tales of a long and glorious summer in the country with the resourceful, endearing Melendy bunch!
