The Penderwicks are back!

Hopefully you are all enjoying the summer adventures of Rosalind, Skye, Jane and Batty otherwise known as The Penderwicks. I can't wait to discuss it with you (and the author!) next Monday at our meeting!

I'm sure you'll be thrilled to learn that there's a sequel to The Penderwicks which just came out called The Penderwicks on Gardam Street. We should be getting a copy in Newport soon but until then you can inter-library loan it from another RI library through the Ocean State Libraries Catalog.

In the second book about the Penderwicks, the sisters are home on Gardam Street and ready for an adventure! But the adventure they get isn’t quite what they had in mind. Mr. Penderwick’s sister has decided it’s time for him to start dating—and the girls know that can only mean one thing: disaster.
Enter the Save Daddy Plan—a plot so brilliant, so bold, so funny, that only the Penderwick girls could have come up with it. But in the meantime, they have some other problems to deal with. Rosalind can’t seem to get the annoying Tommy Geiger out of her hair—and she can’t stand him, really. Skye loses her temper on the soccer field in a most undignified manner. Jane’s love of creative writing leads her into deep waters. And Batty’s getting into mischief spying on the new next-door neighbor. As for Hound, he’s always in trouble.
It’s high jinks, big laughs, and loads of family warmth as the Penderwicks triumphantly return!

Ms. Birdsall is also traveling around on an author tour in support of the new book right now and she has some Massachusetts dates! Check out her tour schedule here and go and get your books signed!
