The Vanderbeekers have always lived in the brownstone on 141st Street in Harlem, New York City. It’s practically another member of the family. So, when their reclusive, curmudgeonly landlord decides not to renew their lease, the five siblings have eleven days to do whatever it takes to convince the dreaded Mr. Beiderman just how wonderful they—and their dog, Franz; their cat, George Washington; and their bunny, Paganini—are. Maybe the best way to fight this battle is with love.
