Living in Cranbury on New Dollar Street, having a mother who could make both ends just meet and have fun doing it, and being one of a family of four children is a rich, adventurous existence for the Moffat children.


A simple and delightful story that recounts some of the easy joy of childhood.  No major drama, you just end up feeling like you have followed the characters around, peeking into their lives.  A good one for precocious readers down to age 6ish.
