Best for all ages, and one of Sarah's all-time favorite read-alouds. Join the Vanderbeeker kids as they try to convince the curmudgeonly landlord, Mr. Beiderman, to renew their lease and let them stay in the brownstone they all love.
**Description from Amazon: 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.
