The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street (Hardcover)
The perfect feel-good holiday tale! It's days before Christmas when the Vanderbeekers are informed of their sudden eviction, and the family's five children are determined to change their crotchety landlord's mind. SO charming. You'll fall in love with the cast of characters and grow your appreciation for community. [Tanya]— From The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street
One of The New York Times' Notable Children's Books of 2017: "In this delightful and heartwarming throwback to the big-family novels of yesteryear, a large biracial family might lose their beloved brownstone home, but win it back with an all-out charm offensive."
The Vanderbeekers have always lived in the brownstone on 141st Street. It's practically another member of the family. So when their reclusive, curmudgeonly landlord decides not to renew their lease, the five siblings have eleven days to do whatever it takes to stay in their beloved home and convince the dreaded Beiderman just how wonderful they are. And all is fair in love and war when it comes to keeping their home.
