It’s springtime in Harlem, and the Vanderbeeker kids have one glorious week off from school. Their plans include preparing for a high stakes violin audition (Isa), working on the best science fair project ever (Jessie), building the treehouse of his dreams (Oliver), knitting a pair of house slippers for Franz (Hyacinth), and practicing flips (Laney). Their plans do notinclude single handedly destroying Mama’s baking business. While the kids race against the clock to fix their epic mistake, they realize that nothing is as easy as it seems, especially when mysterious packages arrive at their door and threaten to ruin everything.
In this third book in the Vanderbeeker series, revisit the warmth of the brownstone on 141stStreet and watch the Vanderbeekers bring a little more joy and kindness to the neighborhood, one hilarious, impossible plan at a time.
