Publisher's Summary

National Book Award, Young People's Literature, 2005

The 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.

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.
