Springtime is finally arriving on Gardam Street, and there are surprises in store for each member of the family. Some surprises are just wonderful, like neighbor Nick Geiger coming home from war. And some are ridiculous, like Batty’s new dog-walking business. Batty is saving up her dog-walking money for an extra-special surprise for her family, which she plans to present on her upcoming birthday. But when some unwelcome surprises make themselves known, the best-laid plans fall apart.

Filled with all the heart, hilarity, and charm that has come to define this beloved clan, The Penderwicks in Spring is about fun and family and friends (and dogs), and what happens when you bring what’s hidden into the bright light of the spring sun.

  • “Chock full of all the qualities fans love (humor, heart, and the honest exploration of emotions.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “The Penderwick family is back in the fourth book of Birdsall’s popular series…Throughout the series, Birdsall has demonstrated considerable skill at crafting a modern classic, merging modern-day wit with an old-fashioned charm. Birdsall is a master at making the everyday exciting.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Narrator Susan Denaker does a splendid job with this fourth in the Penderwick series. Although part of a large blended family, each of the Penderwick kids is distinct, along with their many friends and neighbors. At center stage is Batty, who sounds determined and earnest as she begins a dog-walking business…Denaker is impressive with the foreign languages that the family members occasionally use. She’s also very moving as Batty copes with the double loss of her mother—who died at her birth—and her beloved dog, Hound. Listeners will enjoy the feeling of nostalgia that permeates this contemporary novel.”
