When it first came out, I listened to the audio. Last 2 weeks I watched season 1 series. The last few days I treated myself to rereading the book. So wonderful, intelligent, historically accurate, and richest characterizations. I wonder if there‘ll be a season 2…

So clever, great characters! As a continuation of the other books (Ivan, Ruby, and Bob), this is in Ivan‘s POV. He and his mate Kinyane have just had twins. They (along with Ruby and Bob) now live in a wildlife sanctuary. Listen to the audio if you can- the voices are well done.

Vanderbeekers of 141st Street | Karina Yan Glaser

Pickpick

“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.” Amazon

Delightful story of 5 children who, in devising a scheme, find out so much more…
