In 2020 I still remember it with fondness.

Melissa was sitting on the sofa reading a book. For some reason, the sofa felt a bit uncomfortable today. All lumpy-bumpy. Melissa lifted up the cover and saw five little shaggy green monsters crouching underneath. Who are you? she asked in amazement. But the monsters just laughed in her face. Just you wait! said Melissa. She got out the vacuum cleaner and tried to vacuum the monsters up. But they simply fastened their claws into the cushion and grinned at Melissa. Okay! Fine! said Melissa. If that’s the way you want it … Then she called on the secret anti-monster weapon which fills all monsters with fear and dread. Melissa roared as loud as she could, Muummmyyy! Suddenly, the little monsters evaporated into thin air. The cowards were scared of grown-ups! Feeling pleased with herself, Melissa opened her book again. At last she could look at the pictures without being disturbed. S.H. 3 January The birthday dwarf Aunt Kate gave this to Teddy at last New Year's Fidler Family book party - this was a childhood favorite of hers and my mom's. In November, there are two stories for Veteran's Day, one of which is clearly an Armistice Day story with a couple lines added for Veteran's Day. This is the only reference to WWII in the entire book, and elsewhere WWI is called "The World War".Forgotten the title or the author of a book? Our BookSleuth is specially designed for you.

About a month later one of the children declares that spaghetti and meatballs is her favorite dinner. Written years apart, pre- and post-Chef Boyardee?

While many books have an individual story for each day, in this book the stories are all somehow linked to the families on Trufflescootums Boulevard (aka "What A Jolly Street"), which is a cul-de-sac across from a school, with a little grocery on the corner, up against a sizable creek, with farmland and an orchard right near. Some of the stories, while complete, have a "to be continued" feel that spreads over a few days or an even longer time (one "mystery" lasts months), which gives the book as a whole surprising depth, IMHO. This is a time when spaghetti is an exotic food and all the moms are homemakers and it's very much another era, yet many of the lessons and activities shown are timeless.Jonathan wrapped his warm scarf tightly round him and looked out at the sea. He did this every day. Even in winter. He loved to watch the ships sailing by. Hey! You! Baffled, Jonathan peered into the water. Who should be swimming there but a little mermaid!
