The Penderwicks at Point Mouette

29 Nov

Jeanne Birdsall has done it again, this time with the story, The Penderwicks at Point Mouette.  Birdsall captures the joy and heartache that comes with growing up.  Rosalind, the oldest Penderwick goes on vacation with a friend while the rest of the sisters go to Maine to visit Aunt Claire with their good friend Jeffrey.  The adventures that ensue range from first love to sprained ankles, to collecting golf balls and more as the next oldest Penderwick tries to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Birdsall writes in a very classic manner reminiscent of Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume, but truly makes her characters come to life through her writing.  I enjoyed this one just as much the other two books in the series and there are two more in the works!
