This book was so much fun to read! It was funny, adventurous, and extremely heartwarming!

81Q-yegxfAL Mama and Papa live in a beautiful brownstone house in Harlem, New York. They have a set of twins, Jesse and Isa, Oliver, Hyacinth, and Laney as well as their lovable pets, Franz (Dog), George Washington (Cat), and Paganini (Rabbit). The Vanderbeekers love their home, but a few days before Christmas their landlord decides not to renew their lease. Instead of giving up and preparing to leave, the children are determined to persuade their landlord to let them stay. What will they discover about their mysterious landlord who never leaves his apartment, and is always angry? Will they be able to persuade him to let them keep their beloved brownstone?

I loved this book from the beginning. The siblings were always coming up with amusing plans and dangerous endeavors. Life on 141st Street is magical. Thank you, Karina Yan Glaser for a beautifully written story. I will cherish always cherish this book. 

 When you finish reading this book, you won’t want to miss the next two in the series!
