The Alley by Eleanor Estes, Edward Ardizzone

In the heart of Brooklyn, New York, there is an alley that is the most beautiful place to live in the whole wide world. Or so Connie Ives believes. And because this alley just so happens to be the perfect location to sharpen one's swinging skills, hold practices for the Alley Conservatory of Music, and convict a burglar by trial, it looks like it might be the most exciting place to live as well!

About the Author

Eleanor Estes (1906-1988) grew up in West Haven, Connecticut, which she renamed Cranbury for her classic stories about the Moffat and Pye families. A children’s librarian for many years, she launched her writing career with the publication of The Moffats in 1941. Two of her outstanding books about the Moffats—Rufus M. and The Middle Moffat—were awarded Newbery Honors, as was her short novel The Hundred Dresses. She won the Newbery Medal for Ginger Pye.

This book is truly remarkable. The author, Eleanor, one of my favorite authors, lived about in the 1950's so the story is old fashioned which in my opinion, is interesting to read about. The book is quite long, the text is tiny, so it's certainly good for a kid 8+, if your child can read a book thats about 200 pages without getting bored of it. A wonderful read.
