Description

This summer the Penderwick sisters have a wonderful surprise: a holiday on the grounds of a beautiful estate called Arundel. Soon they are busy discovering the summertime magic of Arundel's sprawling gardens, treasure-filled attic, tame rabbits, and the cook who makes the best gingerbread in Massachusetts. But the best discovery of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel's owner, who quickly proves to be the perfect companion for their adventures.

The icy-hearted Mrs. Tifton is not as pleased with the Penderwicks as Jeffrey is, though, and warns the new friends to stay out of trouble. Which, of course, they will, won't they? One thing's for sure: it will be a summer the Penderwicks will never forget.

Deliciously nostalgic and quaintly witty, this is a story as breezy and carefree as a summer day.

Happy Accident

I accidentally downloaded this book not realizing it was a children's book, but once I started listening, I was transported to magical summer childhood memories, and couldn't bring myself to stop! This would be a great book to engage kids ranging from 6 to 12-ish, or just listen to it on your own if you want to escape the real world of paying bills, doing dishes, or commuting to work!

Excellent doesn't begin to describe!

I listened to this audiobook with my 10 year old daughter, and the only thing we didn't like was when it ended. The characters became so real that she and I discussed aspects of them at times when we weren't listening. As a mother, I especially appreciated the kindness shared between the family members and friends within these chapters. This is a well-written and wonderfully narrated piece of children's literature that I highly recommend.

My daughter LOVES this story!

What made the experience of listening to The Penderwicks the most enjoyable?

My daughter absolutely loves this story & has listened to it so many times I think she has some of it memorized.
She started listenting to it at about age 7 and at age 9 still enjoys it. My older daughters also enjoy the story.

Worth a Chance

I took a chance on a potentially good story of a family made up of four girls...so myself and three boys listened to and were completely entertained. Mr. Penderwick is a good father to a highly intelligent and rambunctious group of daughters.

Absolutely delightful and charming!

Would you listen to The Penderwicks again? Why?

I am a reading tutor and am using this on my iPod with my student to work on fluency, and reading with expression. I am finding new insights each time I listen to the story.

What about Susan Denaker???s performance did you like?

I love the way she performs the different voices.

Amazing book??

This is definitely an amazing book! It can be for young and old kids and teens. It is exiting and adventures but has a few kissing parts. It is the story of a family,the penderwicks rent a cabin and meet a boy and that's how it all begins I would definitely recommend it for family's to listen together

Not what I was expecting based on reviews

This came highly recommended, but I wasn’t very impressed. Reviews made it out to be a classic kids adventure like Boxcar Children, but I didn’t like the romance aspect of Rosalind and he obsession with an older boy and her imagining kissing him and holding hands—I’m trying to avoid “boy-silliness” in my elementary school daughters. Also, I didn’t like the use of words like stupid, creep, and other disparaging talk about adults. It wasn’t age appropriate for what I was expecting.

I like how this book is realistic and funny but it uses improper grammar but overall it’s a really good book
