SUMMARY: Harriet didn't know she had any aunts until her father reveals that she actually has five! Unfortunately, he lost contact with them and has no idea where they could be living. Harriet instantly decides she wants to find these aunts and to have the unfinished family portrait completed. She sets out to find her aunts with a little help from people along the way.

ILLUSTRATIONS: There are very gorgeous and detailed pencil drawings throughout the book that add interest and keep the story moving along.

REVIEW: This is a quirky and very different story from the usual junior novels. The aunts all have very unusual names such as Majolica and they have unusual talents. The aunts adore Harriet and the entire story is very upbeat. There is quite a bit of predictability to this story, but this is expected in this age range of books.
