Meet the Penderwicks, four different sisters with one special bond. There’s practical Rosalind; feisty Skye; artistic Jane; and shy little sister Batty.When the girls and their doting father head off for their summer holiday, they find themselves staying on a beautiful estate of Arundel, with its sprawling gardens, treasurefilled attic, tame rabbits, and the cook who makes the best gingerbread in Massachusetts. But best of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel’s owner, who proves to be the perfect companion for their adventures.
What the critics say:
