Not my favourite Penderwicks novel, but this one is still really good in its own right. The lack of having Rosalind and Mr. Penderwick in the book made me really sad, but at the same time I loved the growth that was achieved for the other sisters in this installment.

This makes me want to read Penderwicks in the Spring right away though.

The Penderwick sisters are not keen about being separated from the oldest sister for the first time. Rosalind goes to the beach ... and the rest go to Maine with Aunt Claire and Jeffrey. This leaves Skye in charge with all the responsibilities of their sister.
This is a great summer read because it is all about summer vacation!
I recommend it to others!

Three books in and I still find everything about this series, every character and detail and perfectly crafted moment, totally delightful. The best way I can describe these books to people is "Little Women for the 21st century" -- so lovely and funny and heartfelt and great. This installment gets bonus points for making me cry.

A fun-loving book. This story has a charm that I can't explain. :) I just couldn't put it down! If you want to read about a story about four odd sisters, this is the book you want!

There’s nothing like having your expectations so high that a book can’t live up to them . . . and this is nothing LIKE having your expectations so high that a book can’t live up to them. Sure there’s a bit of a lull halfway through in the action, which may cause the reader to wonder where exactly the story is going. Lulls are fine, though. They pass. In this case, quite thoroughly. If you’ve someone who’d like to be introduced into this world for the first time or someone who’s been reading the books straight through, it makes no difference. Both will enjoy this newest Penderwickian challenge. Both will be intrigued and pleased. Both will love it. You will too for that matter. There is something infinitely satisfying about seeing someone working at the top of their game. Ms. Jeanne Birdsall could well be the poster child for that satisfaction. A fun fun book.

Hairwise, the day ended triumphantly, with everyone improved, epically Alec, who they all agreed looked quite handsome without his beard. A few of them also thought that he reminded them of someone they'd seen before, but after Jane came up with a lot of movie stars as possibilities, Alec told them to please stop before his ego exploded.

Skye- "How do I say 'Jeffery's loathsome Mother' in Latin?"

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Aug 19, 2012

“The Penderwick family was being torn apart.” Nuff said. Maybe torn apart is a bit of an exaggeration. You see, with the recent marriage of their father to that perfectly nice Iantha, the family suddenly finds itself going in three different directions. The parental Penderwicks are going to England on a honeymoon for two weeks while Rosalind goes to New Jersey during that time with a friend. That leaves the remaining three girls to join their Aunt Claire at Point Mouette, in a lovely little coastal cottage. Their pleasure at the thought is daunted somewhat by the discovery that their best honorary brother Jeffrey will not be joining them. More shocking still, with Rosalind out of the picture, Skye is automatically the OAP (Oldest Available Penderwick) and she is not pleased with the responsibility that entails. Fortunately there are enough dog related mishaps, skateboarding cool guys, musicians, golf balls, moose, and more to distract the remaining Penderwicks from their problems. Particularly when a friend needs their help.
