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 bestseller Jeanne Birdsall is perfect for fans of Noel Streatfeild and Edward Eager.

When summer comes around, it's off to the beach for Rosalind . . . and off to Maine with Aunt Claire for the rest of the Penderwick girls, as well as their old friend, Jeffrey.

That leaves Skye as OAP (oldest available Penderwick)—a terrifying notion for all, but for Skye especially. Things look good as they settle into their cozy cottage, with a rocky shore, enthusiastic seagulls, a just-right corner store, and a charming next-door neighbor.  But can Skye hold it together long enough to figure out Rosalind's directions about not letting Batty explode?  Will Jane's Love Survey come to a tragic conclusion after she meets the alluring Dominic? Is Batty—contrary to all accepted wisdom—the only Penderwick capable of carrying a tune?  And will Jeffrey be able to keep peace between the girls . . . these girls who are his second, and most heartfelt, family?

It's a rollicking ride as the Penderwicks continue their unforgettable adventures in a story filled with laughs and joyful tears!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/18/2014

    " For some reason I thought I loved the first book. I laughed at myself when I read that I'd given it 2 stars. Hopefully if I see more to this series I won't make the same mistake. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arianne | 2/16/2014

    " If you know a young reader, this third installment is as magical as the first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick | 2/16/2014

    " a wonderful addition to Birdsall's series for young readers. One of the few series intended for tweens which both parents and children can enjoy "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauri | 2/3/2014

    " I give this book a 3.5. I found myself pretty bored for much of the book but stuck with it because I love the Penderwicks! I am so disappointed. I was entranced for about the last quarter and didn't want to quit listening. But, that's not enough to up my rating!I'm not sure I will read another if Birdsall adds to her series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tori | 2/2/2014

    " This third installment in the Penderwicks series was also better, I thought, than the first. This makes both sequels better than the first book - a very rare occurrence. I was delighted to spend another few hundred pages with Skye, Jane, Batty, and Jeffrey (and Hound too, of course). "
