Publisher's Summary

The finale you've all been waiting for: The Penderwicks at Last is the final, flawless installment in the modern classic series from National Book Award winner and New York Times best-selling author Jeanne Birdsall!

Nine years, five older siblings, a few beloved dogs, and an endless array of adventures - these are the things that have shaped Lydia's journey since fans first met her in The Penderwicks in Spring.

Now, it's summertime, and 11-year-old Lydia is dancing at the bus stop, waiting for big sister, Batty, to get home from college.

This is a very important dance and a very important wait, because the two youngest sisters are about to arrive home to find out that the Penderwicks will all be returning to Arundel this summer, the place where it all began. And better still is the occasion: a good ol'-fashioned, homemade-by-Penderwicks wedding.

Bursting with heart and brimming with charm, this is a joyful, hilarious ode to the family we love best. And oh, my MOPS - Meeting of Penderwick Siblings, lest we ever forget - does Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwicks at Last crescendo to one perfect Penderwick finale.

Critic Reviews

"Penderwick fans will be saddened yet satisfied by Susan Denaker's narration of the series' final book. The crispness of her narration conveys the old-fashioned feeling of the close-knit family's reminiscences..... Denaker's verve expresses the delight Lydia and her siblings find in even the smallest events." (AudioFile)

Awesome series!

Loved this series! We listened to this series with my 9 and 10 year old daughters. We couldn’t get enough. We loved how the stories are told over time. We are sad the series is over.

Another winner

A great last installment to a series which is one of my family's favorites. Both my boys and my girls enjoyed this series and were hooked on every word of each story. My daughter begged me to listen to them, and so I did, but she didn't have to beg me to listen after the first one I really loved them. I am a teacher at a classical school so I loved Mr. Penderwick's constant use of Latin and the emphasis on reading good books. Thanks to Birdsall for these brilliant family friendly stories with lots of laughs, tears and triumphs!

So so so so HAPPY 😁!!!

When I first started the Penderwicks’ Series, they swept me into their world! I love them! Though, I’m really sad 😢 that the series has come to an end, I loved the adventures. It was like, I was there with Rosalind, Skye, Jane, Batty, Lydia, and Ben. With them, it was like NOTHING could go wrong. I’m going to miss them, especially dear little Lydia (Lyds). I love The Penderwicks!😄😁😂😍🤩😋😭🤗😱😥😓❕❕❕❕❕❕👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 I HIGHLY recommend this series for listeners ages 5 to infinity!
