The Penderwicks

by Jeanne Birdsall

It`s a fun and very interesting book. When the four Penderwick sisters stay at Arundel for 3 weeks for summer holiday they start to explore and find an interesting boy. There's adorable Batty 4 years. Jane who's an author 9 years. Skye who is very fun 10 years and oldest sweet Rosalind.

I love this series!! There's five books and all are just as good as the last! You love the characters and the plot and you feel like your a Penderwick sibling yourself! I'd definitely recommend this book. 5 stars!
