The Penderwicks On Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall
I knew that Ms Birdsall had written a sequel to this wonderful book but hadn't had a chance to read it. I finally picked up a copy from the library and sat down to indulge in some "comfort" time.
The Penderwicks On Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall is just as wonderful as it's predecessor, although a bit more predictable. Not that predictable is bad, because when it comes to comfort we need that predictablitiy. It really is a sweet story that needed to be told because it was nice to get some background on this really sweet family. So if you know any child who needs a little whimsy and comfort with some fun tossed in....this is the book for them. It is a young reader but would also make a good "chapter" a night for a younger child. A must read~
