The Penderwicks at Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall

    Review by: Lisa

Title:  The Penderwicks at Point Mouette

Author:  Jeanne Birdsall

Collection:  Juvenile Fiction

When the three younger Penderwick sisters go to Maine with Aunt Claire and are separated from oldest sister Rosalind for the first time in their lives, an uncertain Skye is left in charge as the OAP–oldest available Penderwick.

I was so pleased to see this third book in Jeanne Birdsall’s charming Penderwick’s series for children in the collection.  I’ve written in a previous post about what a fan I am of the other books in the series.  This new title captures the same feel that reminds me so much of childhood adventures gone by.  Birdsall perfectly depicts characters who come to life on the page, each with their own unique characteristics and qualities.  I found myself laughing, worried, sympathetic, and cheering at points during the story.

This is the perfect book for children who want to read about fun and real life, and for parents who want their children to know that childhood innocence is still alive, to show them that it is far more fun to be a kid than it is to grow up too soon.  I look forward to even more adventures with the Penderwick children in the future.
