About the Penderwicks ...

Meet the Penderwicks, a family who believes in truth and honor, yet can’t seem to stay out of trouble. There's oldest sister Rosalind, responsible for the rest; stubborn, feisty Skye; dreamy Jane; and shy little Batty, whose best friend is Hound, a large dog more loyal than obedient.

Jeanne Birdsall has published three books about the Penderwicks. She plans to write five altogether.
