Summary

With over one million copies sold, this series of modern classics about the charming Penderwick family from National Book Award winner and New York Times best seller Jeanne Birdsall is perfect for fans of Noel Streatfeild and Edward Eager.

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’s high jinks, big laughs, and loads of family warmth as the Penderwicks triumphantly return.

Love this series!

My 8 yr old boy, 9 yr old girl, and 11 yr old boy and I are listening to this series together. We all love it. My 16 year old boy even gets sucked into the story when he's around.

Good Family Listen

This is the second Penderwick novel my family has listened to on our travels out of town for the holidays. We love the adventures and little bit of trouble the sisters get into in each book. My boys, 11 & 7, don't mind that the main characters are girls. 😉

Thoroughly Enjoyed It!

Although I think 12 years old is too young for a first mutual kiss, I do think this story was wonderfully written and well narrated. I plan to listen to the next book. BTW, I am not an "Audible kid". I am an "Audible Senior" and thoroughly enjoyed the story.
