Book Review: The Four-Story Mistake
I loved the introduction from the author and explanation of the character in the beginning of this juvenile fiction book. It made it feel very personal and honest. I really liked the references to family and friends. This helped make this book wonderful.
This is one of the cutest stories I believe I have ever read. This story really pulled me in from the get-go. I really could feel myself in this story.
The story follows the adorable and sweet Melendy family. They are moving from the city to the country, and man is it about to be an adventure. I really related to that because I have moved from the country to the city, and then back to the country. We know with the Melendy family it is gonna be a fun time.
This is such a gentle book. I love that this book series is set in the 1940's which is such a lovely time in the world. I really like how the book captures what childhood is supposed to be about, adventure, magic, wonder, and glorious. The days before we started watching television, and playing with electronics.
There are four, completely different kids in this story, and each could have a book written about them. The author creates such dynamic and interesting characters. This book is perfect for any child or adult that is full of curiosity and imagination.
