    1. Absolutely wonderful Warm, wise, humorous, delightful Nash really knew the hearts and minds of children and adults Yes, in many ways it is deeply rooted in the world of the 50s and I doubt they could should ever get away with living alone all summer in this day and age but it s a wonderful fantasy for children of today while reminding all of us how capable young people can be if we let them A classic, in my book I love it dearly.


    2. I loved this story of three siblings who take care of themselves when their father and housekeeper are forced to travel unexpectedly The younger brother spends most of the book trying to coax his cat s appetite back, with hilarious results This is book 1 in another series I found in my elementary school library.


    3. Grabbed this at a used book store because I read it and loved it as a child Now I regret not tracking it down when the kids were younger Not that they suffered from lack of books, heaven knows, but this book is a rare gem.The characterization is thin, but it s thin the way the characterization in a myth or a fairy tale is thin There is a sense where most of the characters represent archetypes or symbols as much as they represent individuals Few modern books achieve this level of resonance within [...]


    4. This was a happy re read for me for like the millionth time I ve owned and loved this book since age 8 years, which is a long time In my opinion, it is quite simply the best children s chapter book ever written I love the innocent summer adventures, assertion of independence and creativity, love for family and pets, and responsibility detailed within its pages.


    5. I loved this book as a young person and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to read it to my oldest daughter I appreciated the imaginative nature of the children and their spirit of independence and desire to help their father I have always loved cats and they figure into this story as well While there are some moral lessons to be learned and explained , I find this to be a fun and inspirational read I think I ve read this book four times by now, which is the most I ve read any book Also, I was h [...]


    6. 4 1 2 stars Thoroughly enjoyable, charming, and perfect for summer I think I would have really liked this when I was little, too I think the only reason I gave it 4 1 2 instead of 5 was I just wanted it to be longer I felt like they needed to have MORE adventures to share with me D I had never read any of the author s other books but I will definitely be on the look out for them.


    7. Remember when everyone in children s fiction except for clearly identifiable villains was quintessentially nice And the problems could be and were solved by the end of the book That s this book Soothing, comforting, a nostalgic read.


    8. I never realized until tonight that this a series of three books I wish I could find the other two I loved the cat in this book and wanted one just like it so bad I never really questioned the lack of adult supervision over the kids just found their adventure fabulous when I first read it.





    9. My mom read this to me when I was in first grade and I remember loving it, so I decided to read it as an adult Cute chapter book quick read, clever and fun


    10. I certainly liked this little story about three children who secretly stay home alone while their father and their housekeeper are away They make some money in a very unexpected way, acquire a family of cats, and even end up inventing and marketing a miraculous new product However, the characterization is pretty thin except for Theobold, a.k.a Toad and there isn t a lot to the story overall, but it s a cute book and actually pretty clever in places I do love Toad s malapropisms though, like thes [...]


    11. I love this book Was looking for a quick read in Lauren s bookshelf and saw my original copy it was 0.60 I m old I remember reading it when I was about Jacob s age and loving it How great to relive it I highly recommend this if you like Beverly Cleary books I m reading it to my boys now.


    12. Home alone What fun As usual, I was most disappointed when the adults reenter the story The kids seemed to be doing just fine on their own I think most children love those books that show how kids can be in charge.


    13. This is a charming children s book suited for primary school children This book is for sale on eBay ebay itm 171200915171


    14. Delightful book I found myself wishing I had children young enough or grandchildren old enough to enjoy it with me.


    15. Found in the same cabinet as The Westing Game last weekend one of my all time favorite books as a kid We read this one out loud this week it still holds up too All of us enjoyed it.


    16. This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid Just reread it, and still enjoyed every bit of the story and the characters.



    17. Its was so funny its about children who has a babysitter but the babysitter needs to go help her daughter so she leaves those children alone So they go crazy.



    18. A fun read, perfect for reading out loud to the kids Funny, light hearted, and kept this grown up s interest throughout.
