"Drawing readers right into the family, [Birdsall] enlivens the everyday matters and endows her characters with so much individuality it’s as though she’s erased the word generic from the dictionary."

The book is funny. I like the characters. My favorite character is Skye. I like what she does because I agree with her on a lot. I would also be scared to be the OAP because of the responsibility. She likes maths and I like maths just as much as she does.
I like the things that happen to the characters. I am curious about what was going to happen – like when Jeffrey almost came back to Arundel.
I think Jane’s writing is funny. I laugh because sometimes it’s funny with Sabrina Starr. She rescues a lot of people. The book where she falls in love is especially funny.
By Mirak , age 6 1/2
I have read all three of Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwick series. The previous two Penderwick books have Rosalind (the oldest sister) as the OAP (Oldest Available Penderwick). Now Mrs. Birdsall has put a twist on things. Skye, (the second oldest) not Rosalind, is put in the predicament of having to accept the title of OAP.
I love the way Skye tries to deal with all the difficulties of caring for her youngest sister Batty. Skye over reacts to every small situation, especially concerning her sisters and her Aunt Claire.
The book was a gift and I highly recommend this book for any age. I am thirteen and I know that children, teens and adults will all get a kick out of the funny adventures that the Penderwicks (especially Skye) have to deal with.
Thank you from sincerely
These books are delightful. Not only is the writing very fine, but the characters feel so real, both the talents and flaws of Rosalind, Skye, Jane, Batty, and their friend Jeffrey show up loud and clear. This third book has a special surprise in store for Jeffrey, a plot twist that I should have picked up on before I did, but I was so involved in the sisters antics that I didn't notice it at first. I won't say more than that because I don't want to spoil it if you haven't read it yet. Happy sigh. Only problem now is that I'll have to wait for the next one.
I actually finished it before my 11 year old daughter - the first chapters were harder for her to get through as they were mainly setting the stage, but after that she would stop reading only long enough to say, "I love this book!" and "I wish I were a Penderwick!" - or she would stop to read a passage out loud to me.
This is reading at it's best - I wish Ms. Birdsall all speed towards the fourth book. It won't take us long to re-read the first three and then we will be desperate!
