The Penderwicks At Last

Nine years, five older siblings, a few beloved dogs, and an endless array of adventures—these are the things that have shaped Lydia's journey since readers first met her in The Penderwicks in Spring. Now it's summertime, and she's dancing at the bus stop, waiting for big sister Batty to get home from college. 

This is a very important dance and a very important wait because the two youngest sisters are about to find out that the Penderwicks will be returning to Arundel this summer, the place where it all began. And better still is the occasion: a good old-fashioned, homemade-by-Penderwicks wedding.

Bursting with heart and brimming with charm, this is a joyful, hilarious ode to the family we love best. And oh my MOPS—Meeting of Penderwick Siblings—does Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwicks at Last crescendo to one perfect Penderwick finale.

A richly satisfying curtain call for a beloved series.

There is no better feeling than being 10 years old and feeling represented, accepted, and like someone out there knows you are much more mature than the world thinks you are. Even when the Penderwick books end, I can find the same happiness knowing there will always be 10 year olds in the world who want to feel those same things, and the Penderwicks will always be there for them, just as they were for me.
