Karina Yan Glaser has done it again! I have lost count of how many times I’ve recommended the Vanderbeekers series, and I am delighted that there is a third book to give to curious and playful friends who love a good tale. The Vanderbeekers are my favorite family read-aloud books, by far.— Mary Cady
For the Vanderbeeker kids of Harlem’s 141st Street, spring break couldn’t be off to a better start. Isa’s back from band camp, Oliver’s building his first-ever treehouse in the backyard of the brownstone, and Laney, Jess, and Hyacinth are excited to help their mother when she gets the once-in-a-lifetime chance to star in a cooking magazine.
But the Vanderbeekers’ plans go off the rails when an unexpected visit from city officials puts their mother’s bakery in jeopardy. Now they’ll have to band together to save the day before they’re out of business. Perfect for fans of The Penderwicks and Front Desk.
About the Author
"Once again Glaser produces a charming novel reminiscent of classic and contemporary family story mainstays by Edward Eager, Jeanne Birdsall, and others, but she adds depth with racial diversity, evocative city details, and complex socio-economic issues.... Satisfying as a stand-alone and a welcome return for those who consider the Vanderbeekers part of their own family." —Kirkus
"Glaser ticks all the boxes of a classic middle-grade ensemble piece....funny, with character-grounded quirkiness, just enough slapstick, and no winking over kids’ heads....The whole thing is a little retro, very welcoming to the reader, and sweet to the core."—Horn Book
"Glaser manages the large cast of characters with ease.... A satisfying addition to the Vanderbeeker series."—Booklist
