But a surprise message in the mailbox starts a trail of excitement and adventure that takes them through the cold season. When summer comes around, the children have found 14 messages in all, and the end of the search brings them a rich reward.
Full of unforgettable moments and delightful twists of language, this fourth book in Elizabeth Enright's Melendy Quartet makes for a grand finale to an equally grand collection of stories.
"Elizabeth Enright's children are so real they seem to step right out of the pages to become one's closest friends. Don't miss them." ( Chicago Sunday Tribune)
