Product Description

Then There Were Five is the third volume in Elizabeth Enright's Melendy Quartet series.

Siblings Mona (15-the aspiring actress), Rush (14 - the aspiring musician), Randy (12-and-a-half - the aspiring dancer), and Oliver (7 and three-quarters-who likes playing with army toys) have moved to the country and live with their father (who is away working on a secret World War II job) and housekeeper Cuffy in a house known as the "Four-Story Mistake." Over the summer, the siblings have numerous adventures: they create a swimming hole, find an arrowhead, learn to can, and most importantly, make a new friend in Mark Herron.

Written over half a century ago, The Melendy Quartet books are simultaneously a winning portrait of the mid-20th century, as well as a timeless tale of childhood fun. 177 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

With Father in Washington and Cuffy, their housekeeper, away visiting a sick cousin, almost anything 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; the villainy of the DeLacey brothers; Rush's composition of Opus 3; Mona's first rhubarb pie and all the canning; Randy's arrowhead; the auction and fair for the Red Cross. But best of all is the friendship with Mark Herron, which begins with a scrap-collection mission and comes to a grand climax on Oliver's birthday.

Here is Elizabeth Enright's classic story of a long and glorious summer in the country with the resourceful, endearing Melendy bunch.

Then There Were Five is the third installment of Enright's Melendy Quartet, an engaging and warm series about the close-knit Melendy family and their surprising adventures.

Author Bio

Elizabeth Enright (1909-1968) was born in Oak Park, Illinois, but spent most of her life in or near New York City. Her mother was a magazine illustrator, while her father was a political cartoonist. Illustration was Enright's original career choice and she studied art in Greenwich, Connecticut; Paris, France; and the Parson's 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, she won many awards, including the 1939 John Newbery Medal for Thimble Summer and a 1958 Newbery Honor for Gone-Away Lake. Among her other beloved titles are her books about the Melendy family, starting with The Saturdays, published in 1941. Enright also wrote short stories for adults, and her work was published in The New Yorker, The Ladies Home Journal, Cosmopolitan, The Yale Review, Harper's, and The Saturday Evening Post. She taught creative writing at Barnard College. Translated into many languages throughout the world, Elizabeth Enright's stories are for both the young and the young at heart.

Editorial Reviews
