The Penderwicks at Point Mouette

I said earlier that I would be reading another Penderwicks book, and here is the review. This book is on a lot of Mock Newbery lists and I think it has earned a spot on mine. I really liked hearing more about this interesting family. When I read that Skye was gonna be the OAP I knew something disastrous was bound to happen. I won't tell you what goes wrong, but it is almost everything. I think it is harder for books that are in the middle of a series to win the Newbery, but a few have. This book mentions things that could be better understood when you have read the first book, but it is possible to figure it out without reading the other two books. The one complaint I have about this book is that Rosalind isn't talked about much and she was my favorite of the sisters in the first book.

Rating: *****


  1. Hey Laura, I really loved this one, and I still haven't read either of the first two Penderwicks... so I think it does fine in terms of standing alone. I definitely need to go back to the first two!

  2. I understand your point about Rosalind but other then that I thought it was great!
