The Moffats

by Eleanor Estes
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

I was pretty sure I’d read this one as a kid but all I could remember about it was that the Moffats’ yellow house was in the middle of their bow-shaped street. It’s amazing how some descriptions stay with you! Anyway, this is another feel-good old-fashioned read by Estes, with loveable good kids getting into very minor scrapes. It would make a great read-aloud for kids who like tame stories since each chapter is a new adventure. They do things like accidentally hop on the express train out of town and learn to dance and try to save their home from being sold and teach the bully a lesson. Overall, good clean fun.
