The Penderwicks

Hola! One of my favorite books is The Penderwicks, by Jeanne Birdsall. In it, four sisters, Rosalind, Skye, Jane, and Batty, and their loving father, Martin, go on vacation to a place called Arundel in the Berkshires. There they meet a boy with, lets say, some problems. The Penderwick sisters help sort out Jeffrey's issues while getting into more trouble themselves. All in all, it is the type of feel-good book that you could read over and over and not get bored of. Four stars!


  1. On a summer trip to Yosemite, we listened to the Penderwicks on the drive up and back (books on tape). It's a lovely story that you just don't want to end. Lucky for us, there's a second book, Penderwicks on Gardam Street. We actually READ that one and it's just as charming as the first.

  2. Yeah, I really really like the Penderwicks. It is a great feel good book when you are not happy.

  3. New book! The Penderwicks at Point Mouette!
