Family Grandstand

(1952)
(The first book in the Ridgeway Family series)
A novel by

 
From Newbery Medal winner Carol Ryrie Brink comes a story about one unforgettable family.

Susan, George, and Dumpling have a special life in Midwest City, where they live with their college-professor dad and mystery-writer mom. Not only can they watch the university's football games from the tower of their house on College Avenue, but now Tommy Tokarynski, who mows their lawn, is famous. He's Midwest University's star quarterback. There's only one problem: Tommy's grades are dreadful, and he might get kicked off the team before the homecoming game. With a little ingenuity, Susan, George, and Dumpling team up for a season of fun as they set out to save their beloved quarterback, outsmart their naughty neighbors, rescue animals, and start a new business that just might help out the whole family. It's never a dull moment when the Ridgeway kids are involved!

The adventures of the Ridgeway family in Family Grandstand and its sequel, Family Sabbatical, were inspired by Carol Ryrie Brink's own family and their life together in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
