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.

    " I was so excited when I learned there was another book and more on the way. I find this author timeless and the characters endearing. I love watching the girls grow up and their personalities shine through so much. I like the first book a little better, but just a little. "

    " A lovely book about a family of girls with their varying personalities. I loved it. I thought this was the best of the 3 books, but I did read this one first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Amy Brown | 1/31/2014

    " I loved this book, a sequel to The Penderwicks. The Penderwick daughters face the fact that their widowed father is starting to date again (not because he wants to but because their aunt is forcing him to because of a request from his late wife). The girls come up with a plot to save their father and themselves from the possibility of having an evil stepmother. Each of the girls has a wonderful personality and they have many different adventures together and a part. Some of the plot is predictable but the characters and the writing more than make up for it.
