The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall
This book is nothing short of delightful. It is the perfect summer story about the perfect family in story telling. It is a mix of sunshine and non stop, quirky adventures.
I could go on and on about this book, but it is even better if you go and read it for yourself, and every book in this wonderful series.
The characters are wonderful and as quirky and delightful as the story, and Mr. Penderwick is the best father to ever grace a page. This book is funny and sweat, and like sitting on an old fashioned wood swing watching the sun set. A must read for everyone.
