With over one million copies sold, this series of modern classics about the charming Penderwick family from National Book Award winner and New York Times bestseller Jeanne Birdsall is perfect for fans of Noel Streatfeild and Edward Eager.

When summer comes around, it's off to the beach for Rosalind . . . and off to Maine with Aunt Claire for the rest of the Penderwick girls, as well as their old friend, Jeffrey.

That leaves Skye as OAP (oldest available Penderwick)—a terrifying notion for all, but for Skye especially. Things look good as they settle into their cozy cottage, with a rocky shore, enthusiastic seagulls, a just-right corner store, and a charming next-door neighbor. But can Skye hold it together long enough to figure out Rosalind's directions about not letting Batty explode? Will Jane's Love Survey come to a tragic conclusion after she meets the alluring Dominic? Is Batty—contrary to all accepted wisdom—the only Penderwick capable of carrying a tune? And will Jeffrey be able to keep peace between the girls . . . these girls who are his second, and most heartfelt, family?

It's a rollicking ride as the Penderwicks continue their unforgettable adventures in a story filled with laughs and joyful tears!

        This book is awesome!! So, in this one, the family is split up. Rosy has gone on vacation with her best friend, Mr. Penderwick and his new wife Iantha have gone on a honeymoon, and the rest of the family is in Maine with Aunt Claire. There is many accidents, many late nights, and many arguments, but in the end the Penderwicks friend Jeffery has found his long-lost father, the girls are safely home with their parents, and Aunt Claire may or may not have a new crush... Read this book to get all the fun details!!

          I really liked this book! In this book, the new Penderwick family is being split up for the first time. Batty, Jane, and Skye are heading to Point Mouette with Jeffery and thier Aunt, and Rosy is going to New Jersey with her best friend Anna. Mr. Penderwick, Isnatha, and Ben are heading to England for a business trip. Skye is going to be the OAP, and she's nervous. Plus, an unexpected discovery is made, and Skye isn't sure what to do, especially when Aunt Claire sprains her ankle. Will they survive without Rosy? Read the book to find out! I gave this book 5 stars! Happy Reading!
