The Penderwicks ride again - The Boston Globe

Boston Globe review

"The Penderwicks on Gardam Street" rings autumnal from the get-go: It begins with a death, and leaps forward four years into "late September," which canters to "an early frost, and by Sunday morning, autumn had truly arrived. The sky was a rich cloudless blue, the air still and dry, the maple trees glowing." In addition to lovely prose, one may count on Birdsall for character and comedy. Adult readers will be quick to spot the true romances in this book, but the unfolding of the plot, the delight of that unfolding, and Birdsall's confident, lively writing are the keys to the series's ongoing success.
