Nine years, five older siblings, a few beloved dogs, and an endless array of adventuresthese are the things that have shaped Lydia's journey since readers first met her in The Penderwicks in Spring.
Now it's summertime, and eleven-year-old Lydia is dancing at the bus stop, waiting for big sister Batty to get home from college.
This is a very important dance and a very important wait because the two youngest sisters are about to arrive home to find out that the Penderwicks will all be returning to Arundel this summer, the place where it all began. And better still is the occasion: a good old-fashioned, homemade-by-Penderwicks wedding.
Bursting with heart and brimming with charm, this is a joyful, hilarious ode to the family we love best. And oh my MOPSMeeting of Penderwick Siblingsdoes Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwicks at Last crescendo to one perfect Penderwick finale.
About the Author
Read an Excerpt
Lydia believed in dancing wherever she could--on sidewalks, in supermarket aisles, libraries, swimming pools, parking lots. Today her stage was a bench at the bus stop. It was a challenge dancing on something so narrow, but Lydia took measures to keep from falling--small steps, no leaps, and heavy reliance on upper-body motion.
