    "Interesting book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I thought this was the best book out of the Penderwicks series because it was similar to adventures I have had.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Sky because she is an athletic, confident and adventurous girl.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene war when Rosalind and Tommy forgave each other and caught the burgler together.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would call the film "The Penderwick's sisters"


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good story for little girls"
    What made the experience of listening to The Penderwicks on Gardam Street the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They seem to love batty and Sky the best but really they love them all, except Mrs. Tipton and Baxter.


    What about Susan Denaker’s performance did you like?

    She does a great job capturing the characters with different voices and good pacing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it was too long.

    "Great book, bad narration"

    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.
