If you've read and loved Elizabeth Enright's Melendy Quartet (which clearly you should), this is the perfect modern-day readalike.

Fans of Jeanne Birdsall’s Penderwicks series will love the Fletchers - two Dads, four adopted boys, pets, relatives, a crabby neighbour, and a year of misadventures.

what a great book It was a good yes it is about a family with two dads and four adopted kids but it does not make to much of and issue about it. It presents a year or school faced by each of the brothers and the challenges they have that year. also the family deals with a very grumpy next door neighbor

A funny, touching romp with a very amusing family!

Really good middle grade novel about a big happy family that happens to have 2 dads and happens to include 4 adopted sons of various ages and ethnicities...but that's just background for an entertaining story about the events of a school year where each boy learns/grows in different ways. Great family dynamic, great incorporation of issues of diversity without becoming preachy, some hilarious (madcap) adventures that include the family pets. Loved it.

I enjoyed this growing-up story with a twist. It's not your typical school story, nor your typical family story, but a great mix of both with funny moments and touching moments. It is about building relationships and learning what matters to you. Grades 4-6
