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.
A perfect past-time novel for teenagers and young adults.
The Penderwicks novels are a glorious concoction of humor, drama, self-conflict, and coming of age realistic fiction in equal mesures. The author uses enough advanced vocabulary to paint perfect pictures, while being just a tad brief to appeal to younger audiences. The story of Rosalind, Sky, Jane, and Batty thrills and captivates, while also highlighting realistic foes that mingle along with suburban living. The series cannot be complete without Penderwicks on Gardam Street, a literary masterpiece and a glorious read.
