August Brown has been through a lot: his parents have just divorced, he and his mother have moved from Vermont to Washington, D.C., and he’s left his catcher’s mitt behind with his old friend Zachary Judge. In his new neighborhood of Georgetown, August is the new kid on the block. He doesn’t know anyone, and he doesn’t want to know anyone. Anyone, that is, except for the friendly rag-bag lady who always comes by on garbage day and without fail waves to August. One day, he decides to follow her and ends up in the mysterious Pineapple Place, a quaint cobblestone street of cheerful houses, where seven invisible – except to August – children from another time live. Before he knows it, August and his fantastic new friends have embarked on the adventure of a lifetime in the nation’s capital!
A page-turning fantasy for ages 10 and up!
