The Penderwicks is book you will defiantly want to read and cherish over and over again. This is a summer tale of 4 sisters, their dog, and a boy they befriend. Their summer adventures include befriending Jeffrey, having a run in with an angry bull, going to Jeffrey’s birthday dinner party, where they meet the dreadfully strict Mrs Tifton, and many other fun and exciting adventures. Through the pages of this book, you will find that the sisters will do anything to protect their family’s honor and each other, especially their mother who died of cancer several years ago. Reading this book is like drinking cold lemonade on a hot summer’s day. You will want to read it over and over again and cherish it through your life. I will give this book 5 star, I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I do.

The dregs of January is a good time to read a sunny summery book, and this is a great one. Recommended for anyone who likes old-fashioned (although it's not, really), family adveuntures. And there are sequels!

I love this book! I own it and have read it several times. The girls are all 'real', the plot is engaging but fun, and they all have adventures that aren't of the unbelievable type.

This book is perfect for readers just graduating to chapter books, and who don't want anything too scary. A series of events, with a plot line that keeps moving but never confuses, and a cast of characters that is sure to have at least one that every child can relate to. A great precursor to Narnia or A Series of Unfortunate Events. Proof that oldies are goodies!

I've read this book over 3 times and it still never gets old.

wow parnika, meichen said this book was really good and now i know u think so too, so i'm definitely going to read it :)
