The Saturdays is a children's novel written and illustrated by Elizabeth Enright, published by Farrar & Rinehart in It is the first of four books in the Melendy family series, introducing the four Melendy children who determine to stop wasting their Saturdays, pool their allowances, and take turns having adventures in pre-World War II New York : Elizabeth Enright.   Elizabeth Enright () was a talented writer whose many awards include the John Newbery Medal for Thimble Summer and a Newbery Honor for Gone-Away her other beloved titles are her books about the Melendy family, beginning with The Saturdays (). Enright also wrote short stories for adults, and her work was published in The New Yorker, /5(13).

The Four-Story Mistake is the second installment of Enright's Melendy Quartet, an engaging and warm series about the close-knit Melendy family and their surprising adventures. Then There Were Five Elizabeth Enright — Juvenile Fiction.   Good Stories and Good Writing: The Melendy Quartet I found a great new children’s book series to share with my nine-year-old daughter. I was at the library, just browsing while the kids raided the shelves, and I stumbled across it: a group of four .

Reading level: Series: The Melendy Family series book 1 Genre: Classic ELL-Friendly: Kind of Library recommendation: Middle school The Saturdays is certainly outdated (written in the ’40s), but in a heart-warming way. Think Anne of Green Gables or Little Women.I can’t say I liked it very much because there wasn’t much substance, character development, or problems.   Written more than half a century ago, The Saturdays unfolds with all the ripe details of a specific place and period but remains, just the same, a winning, timeless tale. The Saturdays is the first installment of Enright's Melendy Quartet, an engaging and warm series about the close-knit Melendy family and their surprising adventures/5(12).
