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.

    "This is a great book!😀"

    I really loved this book! I listen to it constantly, and start over when I finish it. This book I think everyone should read, because it is really realistic and it's just really fabulous.

    "AWESOME"

    I know the author, who lives a half hour away from my house. I might be annoying her with how much we tell her that we love it. And Susan Denaker is AMAZING at the voices, especially Batty's. BUY IT. NOW.

    "Duck...Duck...Duck..."

    This book, the whole series for that matter is one of the best books I've ever read. The story is easy to follow the reader ( Susan Denaker) is a perfect fit for the books. I hope ms Birdsall consider's writing a last book of this wonderful series!
