Have any of you read the Penderwicks?
I love the...

I love the Penderwicks! My favorite is the Penderwicks on Gardam Street. I really love when they switch homework and then Jane writes about romance and Rainbow for Skye. It was hilarious! To think Skye would write about that.

Yes, the Penderwicks are amazing! Gardam Street is definitely my favorite. The last two I don't really like, because I hate it when authors make their characters grow up...it takes away the magic.

Oh, I totally agree. I still like them, but I thought it was weird when they were getting married and stuff.

I enjoyed the last two, but I can see what you mean! I liked reading from Lydia and Batty's point of view, and it was fun to see everyone grow up! I was very surprised when I realized Rosalind was in college, though! :)

I normally agree. Usually when the characters grow up I get disappointed because the books just aren't as fun for me anymore. Except for the Penderwicks  it was different, cause I've had a bunch of older siblings go to college/get married and it made the books even more relatable for me. So I actually really liked the last two. But most of the time yeah, it does take the magic away for me.

I started reading the Penderwicks, and it was super good, but my book expired and I had to return it. I really need to re-read it someday and read the rest of the series as well.

I L-O-V-E the Penderwicks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have two sisters and at night my mom reads three to six picture books then we read a chapter of a chapter book. We read the Penderwicks together and loved it! That's my favorite part as well! I also liked when Batty wore her little fairy wings, so cute! 


I just realized how many exclamation points I used XD
