A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy
The Penderwicks: Book #1
“Winner of the National Book Award, the first story takes place in Arundel, Maine, where the Penderwicks go for their summer vacation. Their normal vacation spot is booked, so they rent a small cottage on the property of a large house. Before you know it, the four sisters are up to their noses in adventures involving, at times, rabbits, the boy next door (friend or foe?), their dog Hound, a bull, the gardener, the cook, and more. It’s an unforgettable summer for the entire family, and an unforgettable lifetime of equally compelling adventures throughout the five books in the series. A classic for a new generation of readers, perfect for all family read-alouds or reading alone for ages 8+.”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
With over one million copies sold, this series of modern classics about the charming Penderwick family from National Book Award winner and New York Times bestseller Jeanne Birdsall is perfect for fans of Noel Streatfeild and Edward Eager.
This summer the Penderwick sisters have a wonderful surprise: a holiday on the grounds of a beautiful estate called Arundel. Soon they are busy discovering the summertime magic of Arundel’s sprawling gardens, treasure-filled attic, tame rabbits, and the cook who makes the best gingerbread in Massachusetts. But the best discovery of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel’s owner, who quickly proves to be the perfect companion for their adventures.
The icy-hearted Mrs. Tifton is not as pleased with the Penderwicks as Jeffrey is, though, and warns the new friends to stay out of trouble. Which, of course, they will—won’t they? One thing’s for sure: it will be a summer the Penderwicks will never forget.
Deliciously nostalgic and quaintly witty, this is a story as breezy and carefree as a summer day.
