The I.S.A.A.C (Independent Saturday Afternoon Adventure Club), an idea birthed by the four Melendy children, one tiresome and boring Saturday afternoon, becomes a way for the children to pool their resources to go on the adventures they’ve been dreaming of. Deciding they will take turns to spend the whole sum of their allowances, the children begin to make every Saturday one to remember! From art galleries to the orchestra, the circus and a beauty salon, the children fulfil their heart’s desires as they work together to fund the club.
This story is about family, hard work, simple fun and learning not to judge a book (or person!) by their cover.
Kidnapping and a scene with a dishonest fortune teller who reads tarot cards – she is presented as wicked.
