The Penderwicks is a children’s book series about Rosalind, Skye, Jane, Batty and their dog, Hound.  Although written for a young audience, readers of all ages will find these books endearing.  In the first book, the girls go on vacation with their father and meet Jeffrey who quickly becomes a good friend.

The books remind me of Little Women as each of the girls is personable and well-written in her own way.  Highly recommended for anyone who wants a good, nostalgic escape.
