National Book Award, Young People's Literature, 2005The 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)
The prologue is a bit sad but I liked the rest of the story very much. The narrator is awesome and so is the rest of the book very much. I have enjoyed reading this book over and over again. Highly recommended for 7 and up.
Yes, I thought this was the best book out of the Penderwicks series because it was similar to adventures I have had.
My favorite character was Sky because she is an athletic, confident and adventurous girl.
My favorite scene war when Rosalind and Tommy forgave each other and caught the burgler together.
I would call the film "The Penderwick's sisters"
I really like how the author made a time gap between the last chapter and the conclusion because it gave it lots of mystery and a happy ending.
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.
The book is wonderful, but the narrator's "voices" are annoying. I've listened to many books that were enhanced by a good narrator, but I wish I would have just read the book for this one.
