National Book Award, Young People's Literature, 2005
The Penderwick Sisters are home on Gardam Street and ready for an adventure! But the adventure they get isn't quite what they had in mind. Mr. Penderwick's sister has decided it's time for him to start dating, and the girls know that can only mean one thing: disaster. Enter the Save-Daddy Plan, a plot so brilliant, so bold, so funny that only the Penderwick girls could have come up with it. It's high jinks, big laughs, and loads of family warmth as the Penderwicks triumphantly return.
"This is a book to cherish and to hold close like a warm, cuddly blanket that you draw around yourself to keep out the cold." (School Library Journal)

Good story for little girls
My two daughters 10 and 12 love to listen to stories and particularly enjoyed this one. The characters are engaging and they keep quoting things they learned from Mr.Penderwick.
They seem to love batty and Sky the best but really they love them all, except Mrs. Tipton and Baxter.
She does a great job capturing the characters with different voices and good pacing.
Yes, but it was too long.
