The Four-Story Mistake by Elizabeth Enright

766146The Four-Story Mistake is my warm blanket on a crisp day, my hot soup on the sore throat, and my massage on tight muscles. Join Randy, Rush, Mona, and Oliver on their amiable experience of life at various ages. The book begins with diverse opinions by the kids when their father announces they are moving to the country. Some unwilling, others thrilled, they are all amazed when they first view their new enormous home deep in the beautiful woods, parallel to a clear burbling brook. Cherish the memories this book strings together like beads of a relatable childhood. I recommend this book to all ages. It’s funny, unique, and definitely a classic in my personal library of favorites.
