The Saturdays (Melendy Quartet) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet the Melendys! The four Melendy children live with their father and Cuffy, their beloved housekeeper, in a worn but comfortable brownstone in New York City. There's thirteen-year-old Mona, who has decided to become an actress; twelve-year-old mischievous Rush; ten-and-a-half-year-old Randy, who loves to dance and paint; and thoughtful Oliver, who is just six.
 
Tired of wasting Saturdays doing nothing but wishing for larger allowances, the four Melendys jump at Randy's idea to start the Independent Saturday Afternoon Adventure Club (I.S.A.A.C.). If they pool their resources and take turns spending the whole amount, they can each have at least one memorable Saturday afternoon of their own. Before long, I.S.A.A.C. is in operation and every Saturday is definitely one to remember.
 
Written more than half a century ago, The Saturdays unfolds with all the ripe details of a specific place and period but remains, just the same, a winning, timeless tale. The Saturdays is the first installment of Enright's Melendy Quartet, an engaging and warm series about the close-knit Melendy family and their surprising adventures.

Synopsis:

The Melendys live with their father, who is a writer, and Cuffy, their beloved housekeeper. Enjoyed by readers for more than 50 years, Enright's Melendy Quartet captures the lively adventures of a family as they move from the city to the country. Now this beloved series is back in new paperback editions. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

This beloved, timeless classic kicks off Enright's Melendy Quartet, an enduring series enjoyed by readers for over 50 years; here, the four Melendy children pool their allowances for weekend adventures.

About the Author

Elizabeth Enright (1909–1968) was born in Oak Park, Illinois, but spent most of her life in or near New York City. Originally envisioning a career solely in illustration, she studied art in Paris, France, and at the Parsons School of Design in New York City. After creating her first book in 1937, she developed a taste — and quickly demonstrated a talent — for writing.
 
Throughout her life, Elizabeth Enright wrote and illustrated numerous books, winning many awards in the process. Among those awards were the 1939 John Newbery Medal for Thimble Summer and a 1958 Newbery Honor for Gone-Away Lake. The first of the Melendy Quartet, The Saturdays was published in 1941. Translated into numerous languages throughout the world, her stories have been known and loved by many for generations.
