The Penderwicks at Last (Paperback)
Summer 2018 Kids Indie Next List
“Much weepy love for the last of the Penderwick books. It took mere pages to draw me back in and it should come as no surprise that Jeanne Birdsall has triumphed again. As the Penderwicks return to Arundel, the house where it all began, there are all the elements that you’d expect from a rousing Penderwick adventure, including music, dogs, new friends, and an appearance from the dreaded Mrs. Tifton. The stories about these Penderwick girls and the extended family and friends that they have gained along the way are magical, charming, funny, and real. From the very beginning, the Penderwick books have been modern and classic at the same time. I am sad to leave them but grateful for the years I have spent with them.”
— Lorna Ruby, Wellesley Books, Wellesley, MA
Lydia's older sister Rosalind is getting married and in the most perfect setting--Arundel! Now, the entire family is going back to the spot where they met their "honorary brother" Jeffrey and had endless adventures!
And sure enough, the adventures do not stop. There are close calls involving almost too many dogs to count, dances at bus stops. and the reappearance of a longtime enemy. But most of all, there are six siblings with a bond that's as unshakeable as ever.
The Penderwicks at Last may be the end of a cherished series, but the family we love will never be forgotten.
"Please don't go, Penderwicks; it's too soon to say goodbye." —Kirkus Reviews
