Perfect for fans of The Penderwicks and James Patterson's Middle School series, this seriously funny, modern family adventure features two dads, four adopted boys, and a variety of pets. Meet the Fletchers. Their year will be filled with new schools, old friends, a grouchy neighbor, hungry skunks, leaking ice rinks, school plays, wet cats, and scary tales told in the dark! There's Sam, age twelve, who's mostly interested in soccer, food, and his phone; Jax, age ten, who's psyched for fourth grade and thinks the new neighbor stinks, and not just because of the skunk; Eli, age ten (but younger than Jax), who's thrilled to be starting this year at the Pinnacle School, where everyone's the smart kid; and Frog (not his real name), age six, who wants everyone in kindergarten to save a seat for his invisible cheetah. Also Dad and Papa. WARNING: This book contains cat barf, turtle pee, and some really annoying homework assignments. "Dana Alison Levy has gloriously reimagined the classic family story into a thoroughly modern mold, and it works perfectly!" 'Bruce Coville, bestselling author of the Unicorn Chronicles From the Hardcover edition.

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
