I liked this book. My favorite character of the four sisters is Jane because she loves writing and so do I. This book made me wish I had sisters.

I also read the sequel, The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, and liked that too.

The sisters help each other even though they sometimes fight. I thought the romance parts with Rosalind were funny, but I felt sorry for her when they didn’t turn out so well.

I hope there’s another book written about the Penderwicks.

    I read this book in 3rd grade and loved it! It’s like my comfort book. If I’m feeling sad I read it because it will cheer me up.

    I love this book! Did you know there’s a 3rd book that I have right now called, “The Penderwicks at Point Mouette.” I haven’t read it yet, but I checked it out from the library and it looks really good!
