Who but the Penderwicks could pack so much into two weeks? Without their parents and oldest sister, youngest sisters Batty and Jane—along with 13-year-old Skye filling in as the “OAP” (Oldest Available Penderwick)—are off to Maine with Aunt Claire. As the children explore the beauty of the shore, befriend the neighbors, and make a startling revelation, Penderwick warmth and charm abound. Susan Denaker brings a dignified voice to the role of narrator. Her steady pacing and precise diction make Birdsall’s rich images especially vivid. Denaker’s portrayal of each sister is spot-on. As the story builds to a climax, Denaker speeds up her voice and heightens the tension with a tight and clipped tone. Celebrate families and summer with the Penderwicks!
