I really like the Penderwicks! Great story, charming setting and characters. Compared with other titles this year, I don't think I would consider it for the Newbery, but I would definitely recommend it to elementary and middle school students looking for a solid family story. It reminds me of a modern-day version of an old-time classic, like Little Women.
