I have such a soft spot for all of the work of Helene Hanff and this book is no different. It is the story of a young man who finds a way to spread all kind of mischief in his New York apartment building. It is adorable. A sweet, short and cute read with your children. It is out of print now, but if you can find a copy, you will enjoy it.
