    When Jeanne Birdsall s first middle grade novel The Penderwicks was published in 2005 it committed a crime A crime shared, I might add, by books written by authors like Dr Seuss, J.K Rowling, and even Jeff Kinney They say no good deed goes unpunished Well, the creation of The Penderwicks was a good deed to children across the world in need of great fiction that s homey and familiar without being cloying Books that are touching a meaningful but never saccharine In creating such a book Ms Birdsall [...]

    This one took me a while for some reason, even though when I set my mind to reading than just a few chapters the pages would fly by I think maybe I had grown used to Rosalind s voice and wasn t exactly ready for so much Skye and Jane though Batty is still delightful I also enjoyed Jeffrey becoming a much well rounded character which I think came about because we didn t have to deal with his family much Near the middle of the book I started enjoying the story a lot and it even made me long for [...]

    It s official I am completely and utterly in love with the Penderwicks sighs contentedly and hugs book I just love everything about these books the characters Jeffery, Jane, Batty.cally all of them D , settings, and cozy feeling I get whenever I curl up with one of the books Even though the stories take place in modern times, I can t help getting the feeling that they take place in another time period The delightful writing style seems to perfectly capture how the joys, struggles, and adventures [...]

    In this, the third, installment in the PENDERWICKS series, the three youngest sisters, Skye, Jane, and Batty along with Hound summer vacation with their aunt in a small house on the coast While this means that there s very little of Rosalind a character I did miss it meant that Skye had to be the OAP oldest Penderwick available which was a delightful plot arc Skye must deal with her OAP responsibilities and worries Jane must deal with writer s block and love both for Sabrina Starr and, perhaps, [...]

    I want to be an honorary Penderwick The third Penderwicks installment is even charming, even lovely, and even hilarious Here are the things I love about this book 1 I read it during a very stressful few days and this book comforted me when I thought my head would explode.2 Skye may be my new favorite Penderwick she s quickly edging out Batty Skye, I feel ya the overwhelming responsibility thing stinks Too much pressure But she handled it with aplomb.3 Oceanside setting I am a sucker for beach [...]

    The third story in the Penderwicks series I won t say trilogy as I hope there will be is perfect for summer as, once again, we find the young Penderwicks enjoying their summer vacation in a beautiful natural setting, skillfully removing them from the everyday world of the present day and installing them in a tiny coastal area in Maine called Pointe Mouette Surrounded by the surf, rocky cliffs, pine forests and the occasional seals, moose and seagulls, the girls and their friend Jeffrey enjoy ma [...]

    By a stroke of luck, I happened to be in the car for about 80 percent of the time this wonderfully whimsical audiobook was playing in our car, and now I very much wish I had grown up a Penderwick Birdsall creates such realistic and likable characters and sends them on such fun and heartwarming adventures that you can t help but fall in love with the whole lot of them In our case, Susan Denaker s narration was also a treat, and all of us from ages 5 to 35 didn t want the story to end.

    Review originally posted here.There are some authors you can just always count on You know that they will not disappoint or let you down Even if they have in some way changed their style or grown, like an old friend, you know they are going to still fit you For me Jeanne Birdsall is one such author I have read many books I haven t enjoyed all that much in the past few weeks so when her latest novel, The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, arrived at my door yesterday I was positively gleeful Because I [...]

    I read this and The Penderwicks on Gardam Street back to back, drinking in how delightful these stories are I was a little taken aback to discover that half the Penderwicks are absent from this book, Martin and Iantha and baby Ben off on a sort of honeymoon, and Rosalind on vacation with her friend But Skye, Jane, and Batty make up for this absence with their own brand of hilarity Having their old friend Jeffrey along made everything that much better.I m not sure how I feel about this plot which [...]


    Margaret

    This series continues to be delightful, in that Eager Enright ish way I appreciated how Birdsall changed things up this time by having the eldest Penderwick, Rosalind, absent, so that the dynamics among the rest were different Also, I was pleased to see Jeffrey back and have of his personal story resolved.


    Beth

    I m filling in the blanks leading up to the last book s release and so far nothing s lived up to The Penderwicks in Spring This is delightfully written, and old fashioned, and charming, and I believed not a word of it.

    I tried, I really did try, to adore this entry as I did the other two books in the Penderwicks series, but this one didn t engage me as the others, and I m not really sure why All three are rather leisurely paced and the writing and those sisters are as charming as ever, but I could not get into this one as much There s also a twist near the end that hinges on quite a coincidence that even the soapiest of soap operas would have trouble pulling off Not that there aren t qualities to love Birdsall [...]

    28 May 2011It s vacation time and the Penderwicks are splitting up The parents and baby Ben are out of the way in the UK Rosalind is having a vacation off in New Jersey at the shore with her best friend That leaves Skye to be the Oldest Available Penderwick, in charge of herself, Jane, Batty, Jeffrey, and Hound at the coast in Maine with Aunt Claire who is quickly disabled to give the kids both a responsible adult around and the freedom to take action.It s marvelous Each child is free to pursue [...]

    Every Penderwick is a phenomenal person I have so much love for this beautiful Penderwick family, I can t even contain my emotions long enough to write a decent review Every book in this series is absolute gold, every character is delightfully unique, and every single word in every chapter is genius I love how the author takes small everyday doings and makes them dramatic and interesting and fun Just building a campfire on the beach and toasting marshmallows becomes an adventure fraught with per [...]

    It s impossible to hate the Penderwicks They re just so darn charming Yet at the same time, they aren t just super cute perfect girls They have human flaws They make mistakes That s what makes the books about them so amazing.This is a children s book, yes, I realize I read the first one at a bit of a young age, and, oh, I simply cannot quit the series Still, adults will love it Teens who get over the fact it s a children s book will love it There s not really anything to hate Since it s for a yo [...]


    The Library Lady

    Not going to read it, though buy it I will since the first one won a major award.Thus everything Birdsall has written will now be considered golden and kvelled over by critics and children s librarians even if it sucks.The one star without reading it is in balance for the librarians, teachers and other adults who will award it 5 stars BEFORE reading it, rave about it here and not notice that kids find it utterly, utterly, BORING and not a par on the REAL classic children s stories it attempts to [...]

    I like this one least of the first three Penderwick books Somehow it isn t as cozy as Arundel or Gardam Street Plus, there is less teamwork amongst the sisters They all kind of do their own thing, unlike with problems that arose at Arundel and the Save Daddy Plan I also missed Rosalind But I still like the setting, the new characters, Skye s struggle as OAP, and Jane s struggle as a writer The Dominic plot, though wasn t the most riveting, and I wanted of the book that results from Jane s roman [...]


    Lora

    This was such a good book I think it was my favorite in the series so far It made me smile the whole way through I really hope that a fourth book comes out soon Jeanne Birdsall makes you feel like you re one of the Penderwick sisters.


    Eliana

    Honestly, I didn t like this book as much as the first and second ones It was a pretty good read but I wouldn t recommend it nearly as much as the first and second ones It was a good read though.


    Shawn Thrasher

    The Penderwicks under Birdsall s obviously loving pen are still the modern Marches while never exactly paralleling those famous sisters, Jo and Co are like the Penderwick sisters Roman lares But this go round, the magic was just a bit faded Like wearing a comfortable but worn part of blue jeans, you will enjoy the story, but it won t be as new and exciting as the first time you met them The seaside setting is almost never used, and while I suppose the joy of the Penderwicks is their penchant for [...]

    Happiness is reading a Penderwicks novel, so you can imagine my delight when this ARC arrived at the store I was DOUBLY thrilled to discover that this is only the third in a projected five book series I cannot wait to spend two whole books with my favourite fictional family save perhaps the March girls Or the Weasleys In this third installment, beloved Mr Penderwick and his new wife Iantha are taking a belated honeymoon in England and Rosalind is getting a well earned vacation in New Jersey wit [...]


    Hirondelle

    This book is just made of nice Nice, nice, nice children and dogs, even when naughty and adults and a nice setting, references to very nice other books even unfairly obscure ones like Bilgewater and oh it is such a joy An escapist joy, this gets the pleasure of a summer holiday much better than a real summer holiday Lovely book all through.But when it cames to rate it numerically, forgive me, but then I got quibbles, 3.5 stars it is It is sweet lemonade of a book But it has a nominal plot where [...]

    The third book in the series is another charming installment of life in the Penderwick family The three youngest Penderwicks go on a summer holiday with their aunt to Point Mouette, Maine, while Rosalind is off to visit a friend Although everyone agrees Rosalind deserves the vacation, this leaves Skye as the OAP Oldest Available Penderwick and she s distinctly apprehensive about the responsibility The only bright spot, for Skye, is the possibility of a visit from their good friend Jeffrey from t [...]


    Heather

    Reread 2015 Skye really comes into her own worrying about Batty blowing up and Rosie gets a deserved break Jane s little romantic heart will surely melt yours I love the Penderwicks I want to be in the family Seriously, if you haven t read the other two books, read them Here s a description of the girls from the Author s website that I love Meet the Penderwicks, a family who believes in truth and honor, yet can t seem to stay out of trouble There s oldest sister Rosalind, responsible for the res [...]


    Emily

    Another addition to a cute series, as long as you ignore the author s attempts to sneak in modernity These characters only work as residents of America s simpler past aka the 1950s They don t translate well to modern times Modern children don t act, talk, think, or live as the Penderwicks do.


    Mary

    My heart is so filled with joy upon finishing this book It sounds cheesy, but it s true I love these girls They re kind, thoughtful, and REAL, not cloying or unrealistic And i want to rent a house in Maine for a month, too


    LeonaCarstairs

    A fun read, I haven t had so much fun with a book in a long time.


    GraceAnne

    Each of these books is every bit as wonderful as the last This is the third, and I believe there will be one or two , and I absolutely hope so.


    The Rusty Key

    Reviewed by Rusty Key Writer Jordan B NielsenRecommended for Fans of The Penderwicks, as this is the third book in their series, predominantly leaning towards girls, aged 8 to 12.One Word Summary Melodramatic.There is so very much to love about The Penderwicks, the four modern day sisters who stroll through their quaint adventures, speaking in a clean, slang free dialect not heard in contemporary children s fiction since Amy March tossed Jo s manuscript into the fireplace Birdsall s work brings [...]


    Ross

    This series is so good We ve been listening to the very well done audiobooks as a family The stories are engaging, with Pixar esque emotional levels, and the characters are real and well developed.As a family with four boys, it s interesting to see how they respond to the similarities and differences in the four Penderwick daughters We ve also stolen the idea of the Oldest Available sibling knowing they re responsible These are charming stories that feel like classic children s literature in a m [...]
