The Penderwicks on Gardam Street

The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall
THE Penderwick sisters are home on Gardam Street and ready for an adventure! But the adventure they get isn’t quite what they had in mind. Mr. Penderwick’s sister has decided it’s time for him to start dating—and the girls know that can only mean one thing: disaster. Enter the Save-Daddy Plan—a plot so brilliant, so bold, so funny, that only the Penderwick girls could have come up with it.

...It is the writing itself that charms, creating a book filed with the warmth, confusion, love and mess of real life. There is still that old-fashioned feel to the series, as if a book from your childhood has moved forward to modern day but maintained the same sense of safety and a rightness with the world. Refreshing yet reminiscent...a great read-aloud for classrooms...highly recommended for ages 10-14.
