Now that the worst was happening, Roger began to feel more cheerful, and even a bit reckless. After all, every magic adventure he’d ever read had turned out fine for the hero in the end. I do not know how he came to be so sure that he was the hero of this one, but he was.

"Of c- course," said Lutsmann, stammering over the words.
"But I was just thinking—"

About The Penderwicks on Gardam Street...

Book Jacket Penderwicks on Gardam StreetIn the second book about the Penderwicks, the 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. But in the meantime, they have some other problems to deal with. Rosalind can’t seem to get the annoying Tommy Geiger out of her hair—and she can’t stand him, really. Skye loses her temper on the soccer field in a most undignified manner. Jane’s love of creative writing leads her into deep waters. And Batty’s getting into mischief spying on the new next-door neighbor. As for Hound, he’s always in trouble.

It’s high jinks, big laughs, and loads of family warmth as the Penderwicks triumphantly return!
