“The Penderwicks,” by Jeanne Birdsall

“A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy”

Penderwicks 001 What a fun story! There are the four Penderwick sisters, Rosalind, Skye, Jane and Batty – oh, I need to remember Hound Penderwick. That’s right, a dog! Don’t laugh. Hound is a very important character in the story! Mr. Penderwick is a widowed man. He’s a great guy. I liked dad! He’s smart, funny, and patient with his girls. So, anyway, the family piles into their vehicle and travel to Arundel for their summer vacation. Arundel is a beautiful estate with plenty to explore. Of course, they meet fun and interesting characters – and – not so fun characters. Of course, the owner of Arundel has a son- Jeffrey. The Penderwick  girl’s and Jeffrey become friends. The kids and Hound have adventures galore in this funny and delightful story.
