Description

Product Description

The perfect gift for any new or longtime fans of the National Book Award-winning (The Penderwicks, book 1), New York Times-bestselling series that''s been compared to Little Women!

The Penderwicks
, The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, and The Penderwicks in Spring are available in this charming paperback boxed set. Deliciously nostalgic and quaintly witty, these stories are as breezy and carefree as a clear June day.

“Comforting comedy in an Austen- and Alcott-like vein.” — The New York Times Book Review

“Like drinking lemonade on a swing on a summer day: Perfection!” — The Washington Post 

“Delightful. Not since the Marches [of Little Women] have readers met more engaging girls.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Adults who have been longing to find books for children that remind them of their own beloved childhood favorites, look no further. Birdsall follows in the footsteps of Elizabeth Enright, Edward Eager, and Noel Streatfeild, updating the family story yet keeping all the old-fashioned charm.” — Booklist, Starred

About the Author

Jeanne Birdsall is the National Book Award–winning author of the children''s book  The Penderwicks and its sequel, The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, both of which were also New York Times bestsellers. She grew up in the suburbs west of Philadelphia, where she attended wonderful public schools. Although Birdsall first decided to become a writer when she was 10 years old, it took her until she was 41 to get started. In the years in between, Birdsall had many strange jobs to support herself while working hard as a photographer. Birdsall''s photographs are included in the permanent collections of museums, including the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Art Museum. She lives with her husband in Northampton, Massachusetts. Their house is old and comfortable, full of unruly animals, and surrounded by gardens.

My daughter is reading the first book in the set, she read to page 152 and realized the book is missing 30 pages. Flipping through the last half, the pages are a jumbled mess of numbers out of order, nothing makes sense. She has loved the book so far. Disappointed it is defective. Hoping the rest of the books in the box set are not like this.

Pages missing and duplicated in first book of set
Reviewed in the United States on February 19, 2019
My daughter began reading this book too late to return it and when she got to page 88 of the "The Penderwicks" the next page was 57. The book then continued from there until page 88 again and then skipped to 121. The rest of the books in the set look fine.

My daughter was excited to receive this set of books for Christmas. She had already read the first book from the library so continued reading the next three books in the series. She just pulled out the first book to re-read and was surprised to find that it was misprinted repeating pages 57- 88 twice and omitting pages 89-120. Disappointing. Cannot return to Amazon. I even called the publisher thinking that they would replace their defective product but, no, they shirked the responsibilty to Amazon. It''s not Amazon''s fault. So sad when companies don''t stand by their products.

My child is 8 and has ADHD. It is generally tough to get her to read a long chapter book. At first, she had her natural aversion to getting started, but after consistently encouraging, she really got into it. I was pleasantly surprised to see her get excited and chose to read when given free time. She absolutely loves the Penderwick children. She is so happy that she has the whole series. This was a great investment!

Reviewed in the United States on September 4, 2016
I read this series as an adult, and really enjoyed it. It would be great for middle or high schoolers too. The kids in the book are all nice kids, and while they face struggles and some mild mischief, it is wholesome without being drab.

My son and I sometimes read this together and sometimes he reads alone. These books are really well written and could easily be enjoyed by all ages. The characters are great and very creatively developed. When I read it I always think they have to be people the author knows in real life because she really doesn’t miss a detail.
As for my son, 9, these are the only books he wants to read. I’m not sure what it is exactly but he just loves them. We read the first book and then I tried to have him read other different books and he struggled to stay engaged. He asked if we could get the rest of the Penderwicks series, so I bought it. I totally see why he loves it, but I was amazed at the fact that he prefers it over all the other books with his more “preferred” subject matter. He loves wrestling, karate, soccer, Pokémon, Roblox, action, etc. but when I’ve purchased books on those very topics, he doesn’t like them. Interestingly enough, since I homeschool we focused a lot on the vocabulary from the books. My older sons were reading To Kill A Mockingbird at the same time and also doing vocabulary. There were so many times both the older boys and my 9 year old were learning the same word. Birdsall must be a Harper Lee fan. It was almost too much to be a coincidence! Loved that. It says something about the level of reading for Penderwicks, too. New and challenging words require him to look them up or use clues from the rest of the text to determine meaning. That’s learning folks!
Don’t pass on this series. I’ll admit, reading the summary did not get me wanting to read it. I actually kinda rolled my eyes. It sounded kinda flat and boring. These books are definitely NOT flat or boring. They are cute, funny, touching, exciting, surprising, memorable and not just for girls!! (adding this because some people may see 4 lead female characters and assume a boy won’t be interested).

Nice set of stories. A little bit too much love and romance the further along in the series you get (for my kids at least).
