children's fiction. Quality children's literature for the 21st century--slower paced but extremely very charming. I don't know how I haven't discovered this series earlier. A few notes: each book is self-standing (don't need to read others in series, don't need to read in order); should appeal to wide range of ages (but may need to keep a dictionary handy). Some sad points: Mrs. Penderwick, the mom, died of cancer 5 years ago; Mr P remarried a nice lady with a baby. The sisters' friend Jeffrey does not know who his dad is; his mom has since remarried and won't tell him anything. Batty=Elizabeth=5 years old, but thinks/acts more like 7, Jane (the writer) is 11, Skye (the astronomist) is 12, and the eldest is Rosalind. ( )

The continuing saga of the Penderwick family. Another summer adventure, this time at Point Mouette, Maine. Several of the family members are away on their own adventures, but the majority are in Maine and make some new friends.
Excellent storytelling, following along as the family ages. ( )

The Penderwicks are once again on holiday in this third novel devoted to their adventures, following upon The Penderwicks and The Penderwicks on Gardam Street. This time around, Mr. Penderwick, Iantha and young Ben are off to England; Rosalind is at the New Jersey shore with her best friend Anna; and Skye, Jane, Batty and Hound are off to Point Mouette, Maine with their Aunt Claire. As Skye frets about being the OAP (Oldest Available Penderwick) for the first time, Jane falls in love with an unworthy skateboarder, and Batty discovers her unexpected musical talent, it is Jeffrey - who is staying with the Penderwicks at Point Mouette - who experiences the most surprising thing of all, meeting his long-lost father, Alec, who had had no idea of his existence. This last development dominates the latter portion of the story, which concludes with the Penderwicks reunited...

I enjoyed The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, although perhaps not as much as its two predecessors. The first half of the book is a lighthearted holiday adventure, while the second veers off into drama. Given my fondness for vintage children's books, and the fact that Jeanne Birdsall's work self-consciously echoes some of those books, I was expecting that we would meet Jeffrey's father at some point in the series, so this development didn't surprise me, and was actually quite entertaining. That said, the depiction of Jeffrey's reaction to his new situation - he is angry at both his mother, for not telling his father he existed, and his father, for not somehow guessing that he existed - felt somewhat off to me. It's not that his initial emotional reaction was unrealistic - after all, he is a child, and wants the adults to behave like adults, and protect him from hurt - it's more that his anger feels like it is being justified and vindicated by the narrative, even though it should be clear that the only one to blame is his mother, and that his father is also a victim. It's not so much that I wanted Birdsall to "correct" Jeffrey's position, but I found it odd that none of the other characters even once considered mentioning how unfair it was to blame Alec for the fact that he never knew about Jeffrey. Perhaps we're meant to think that, as a child, Jeffrey is too young and vulnerable to be expected to think ethically? If so, I find that odd, as I would certainly have considered such issues myself, as a child.

Leaving aside the issue of Jeffrey's reaction to his changed circumstances, I did enjoy this third foray into the world of the Penderwicks, and had no sooner finished it than I was reaching for the fourth, The Penderwicks in Spring. That is surely a strong recommendation. ( )

On this third Penderwick adventure, Rosalind and the parents are out of the story. Skye is the OAP (Oldest Available Penderwick) as the three youngest sisters go on a two-week vacation in Maine with their Aunt Claire. Skye is terrified of having so much responsibility, and is especially worried about Batty blowing up. Jeffery (from the first book) joins them on the trip. We meet Alex, a musician who is a neighbor to the cottage they are staying in, and the brother/sister pair, Dominick (with whom Jane falls madly in love) and Mercedes (who quickly becomes Batty's best friend.)
As with the two earlier books, the brilliance is in Birdsall's wonderful writing, the wry humor that permeates nearly every page, the uniquely precocious, but entirely likeable girls, and also Hound, the family dog, who behave exactly like dogs do, but is always described in such a way to make him fully a character in tale.
In the last third of the book, there is an unexpected plot twist and the story changes register for a while, taking a sharp left turn towards drama instead of the light humor that makes this series so wonderful. After 30 or 40 pages, we drift back to a more fun mood, and we're back on track for the rest of the story. ( )
