The Penderwicks on Gardam Street

The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall
Call number: FIC BIR

We first met the Penderwick family while they were on vacation on the grounds of Arundel, an estate owned by Jeffrey and his mother, Mrs. Tifton.  In The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, the family of four sisters, a dog named hound and their charming father are back home.

After a visit from Aunt Claire, the girls discover that it is time for their father to start dating.  None of the girls want their father to be lonely, but at the same time, none of them is wanting a step-mother either.

Join the girls and Mr. Penderwick through this mad-cap adventure that includes the "Save Daddy Plan", a run-in with "the Bug Man" and other mishaps.  The Penderwicks on Gardam Street will have you feeling like you live there with Rosalind, Jane, Skye and Batty.  Will the girls save Daddy?  You'll have to read it to find out!
