|Subtitle||A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy|
|First Read||September 19, 2018|
We first read this a few years ago on F's recommendation (his school teacher read it in class), and T & I have been re-reading the series for bedtime. They're so good, just a little miracle of a book.
The Penderwicks are one of those beautiful literary families that has a strong sense of family honor, are fair and trustworthy, but still get into trouble at every turn. They welcome others into their family without judgement, in an extremely Moomin-like way. There are four sisters, and there's a lot of Little Women echoes here, I think. (I have never read Little Women).
It's hard to say much about these, but they are timeless and lovely and I think that it's really one of my most-enjoyed juvenile chapter books series.
