Author Name:Snyder, Zilpha Keatley
Weatherby IV feels misunderstood.
At age twelve he is about as tall as a six-year-old, and no one lets him forget it.
At school the bullies nicknamed him "Hardly." Now he is homeschooled at the Weatherby mansion, where strict Aunt Adelaide is always on his case about something.
Then Harleigh meets Allegra.
When she literally flies over the walls of Weatherby and into Harleigh's life, the two form an unlikely friendship.
Allegra is fascinated by the enormous Weatherby mansion, and against Harleigh's orders, sneaks inside.
Together they discover that someone is trying to find -- and steal -- the long-lost Weatherby treasure.
Will Harleigh and Allegra be able to foil the villain and save Weatherby House? Three-time Newbery Honor winner Zilpha Keatley Snyder combines a cast of quirky characters with an eerie old mansion to create a spellbinding tale of mystery and magic.
No bigger than a boy half his age, 12-year-old Harleigh J.
Weatherby the Fourth holds out little hope that his latest heart operation will change that or much else.
Still, he enjoys certain advantages in life: an ancestral home with so many rooms that he has never been able to count them, homeschooling with his accommodating uncle Edgar, and, lately, an actual friend named Allegra, a girl who apparently can fly.
Mysterious characters abound at Weatherby House, and with the help of Allegra, Harleigh learns more about its past and present inhabitants.
Tailor-made for children who love the thought of rambling mansions, garden mazes, and hidden treasure, this mannered but very enjoyable story strolls along at a steady pace, allowing plenty of time to savor its distinctive pleasures and unusual characters.
