    My favorite Penderwicks books are still the first (The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy) and the fourth (The Penderwicks in Spring). But this last book ranks right up there with the other three in my opinion! A few notes, if I can d...

    I'm finally willing to admit it's over. Finishing one of my favorite-for-all-time series is not a time to mourn, well not much. I kept making the joke that it would be tragic if I died before Birdsall got me to this point. Even though I'm mostly healthy, it was actually a fear. But her...

    Aaaahhhhh. Very drawn-out sigh of satisfaction. I have just finished the fifth and final Penderwick novel. Previously I had noted how very old-fashioned the books felt: a sort of 20th-century nevertime with cars and phones and computers, but in which plot rarely if ever includes them. ...

    I wanted to love this. Maybe that was never going to happen. I don't know. But when you consider the time span this series covers, and that the girls who were children in the first book are getting married in this one, it's kind of a stretch to keep this a middle grade novel. Yes, the ...

    In this long-awaited conclusion to the Penderwicks series, which is set 15 years after the first book, the entire Penderwicks clan has returned to Arundel to celebrate Rosalind's wedding to Tommy Geiger. Lydia, the youngest Penderwick, is eleven years old, and is thrilled to finally vi...

    4.5 stars Originally posted here at Random Musings of a Bibliophile. The Penderwicks at Last by Jeanne Birdsall is the fifth and final installment of the series that began with The Penderwicks: The Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy back in 2005....

    I should be more sad that this series has come to a close, but I'm just not. I was more than happy to be reunited with my favorite family, but this finale was missing the certain spark and sense of coziness the previous books ooze. I did like Lydia as the narrator and Alice as her side...

    The Penderwicks at Last is very competent, and goodness knows we need more competently written books. But it never jumps off the page like The Penderwicks in Spring. Maybe it's because it's less fresh: we've already jumped a few years in this series, after all. Maybe it's because Lydia...

    Probably my least favorite of the series - a bit too seeped in its own nostalgia and the difference between the older and younger siblings felt a bit too big at times. I did love Alice though and the hens and Batty saving spiders. Lydia was great too but I didn't latch onto her as I di...

    I've heard rumors this one is about Lydia and takes place at Arundel. Which means it could be the right timeframe and place for it to be about Skye and Jeffrey getting married. I want this an inordinate amount. ...

    I will post a real review on the blog next week. For now, some stray thoughts. 1. Philippa Nel? That is a serious deep cut children's lit shout out, Jeanne. Nice. 2. I have found that I can't talk about this book out loud without crying. 3. Whoa what's with the Skye and Jef...

    Reading this book was a bittersweet experience. Sweet, because it's The Penderwicks and therefore automatically a wonderful read, and bitter, because it's the last book in the series and I'm never ready to say goodbye to The Penderwicks. The book centres around Lydia, who is now a twee...

    Lydia frolicks in meadows, plays with sheep, oh and choreographs a dance for her sisters wedding. ATTENTION: This review is chock full of spoilers. So go no further if that is not okay with you. -First Thoughts- I AM FRUSTRATED. And I feel betrayed by Birdsall. Why? Because thi...

    Other than Harry Potter in years past, a new Penderwicks is pretty much the only book I have to have on release day and will stay up reading for, through hell and highwater (and a bleary next day at work), until I?ve finished it. I love these books something fierce, but as much as I ...

    It's still two years away! ... But I need it now! I started reading the Penderwicks series in 2009 (the first book was published in 2005) and the long wait between books has always been a struggle! ...

    so i guess that went how i, in my heart of hearts, knew it was going to go. not the way i wanted it to go, of course. because we could never allow that. but i've read little women, so i guess i saw it coming. i will say this wasn't as much of a dumpster fire as the last book. although ...

    I'm only rating this three stars (instead of one) because it was super well-written and I liked all the parts about Lydia and Alice and Hitch and Ben and all their adventures. But I really, really, really HATE what Jeanne Birdsall did with The Original Penderwicks (okay, not Rosalind a...

    I started crying happy tears on the first page and didn't stop until the last. (view spoiler)[I can understand why people are upset that Skye and Jeffrey didn't end up together, but I honestly think it was for the best. Skye has made it clear over and over again throughout the series ...

    I don't even know what to rate this book... "I'm not happy Bob, NOT HAPPY." -Incredibles. Jeanne Birdsall, you have leeet mee down! I still had hope for Skeffery in the begining but halfway through once Jeffery showed up I had lost hope basically. From then on I thought about stabb...

    I can't believe it's over. The Penderwicks books have been a constant presence in my life since I was about the age of the main characters in the first book. I still love the books just as much today as I did then, and they're some of the only contemporary books that I'll recommend ...

    Whyyyyyyyy I can't give this a rating because, objectively, it was a nice, fun book... but subjectively.... well, let's just say that it definitely did not satisfy seven years worth of expectations. Here's the good: -Lydia. I liked her as a narrator much more than I expected to. She...

    I had such high hopes for this book! I?ve been waiting for a worthy finale to this series since I read ?The Penderwicks in Spring? shortly after it was published and it proved to be one of the only books that?s ever made me tear up. These hopes have been crushed. This book ...

    I have heard almost no rumors about this book except that it is about Lydia and it takes place at Arundel (as one reviewer has previously stated). However, we have a promise from Ms. Birdsall that one of the sisters will get married. I have been rooting for Tommy and Rosalind from the ...

    4.5/5 Stars To call this a book review would be sadly inaccurate because I have too many feelings to form coherent thoughts right now. So what you're going to get is rambly, somewhat incoherent gushing and thoughts that might not even make sense to people who have also read this ser...

    I have just read the book again although this book broke my heart. It's only good I have written the end on my own for myself and all Skeffrey shippers in Wattpad, but now it's actually more confusing. This is my edited review. Please be aware of a lot of spoilers. (and I'll stay with...
