The Penderwicks on Gardam Street

by Jeanne Birdsall

The first one (The Penderwicks) ROCKED, and I think this is just as good! When the girls' Aunt Claire visits, she tells them something they never thought would happen, exacly five years and seven months after her mother dies, her mother wants her father to see other woman....but will he?

I'm about halfway through the book, and so far I really like it. The four Penderwick sisters are so horrified at the thought of their father dating that they hatch the "Save-Daddy Plan." But what does this involve? Will it work, or end in disaster?

My mama is reading this book to me and my two younger sisters. I LOVE IT!!!!! I still like Jane the most. I love the Latin in it. So far I have learned mendax=liar, tuus= your. It's a start.
