When summer comes around, it's off to the beach for Rosalind . . . and off to Maine with Aunt Claire for the rest of the Penderwick girls, as well as their old friend, Jeffrey.
That leaves Skye as OAP (oldest available Penderwick)‚??a terrifying notion for all, but for Skye especially. Things look good as they settle into their cozy cottage, with a rocky shore, enthusiastic seagulls, a just-right corner store, and a charming next-door neighbor.  But can Skye hold it together long enough to figure out Rosalind's directions about not letting Batty explode?  Will Jane's Love Survey come to a tragic conclusion after she meets the alluring Dominic? Is Batty‚??contrary to all accepted wisdom‚??the only Penderwick capable of carrying a tune?  And will Jeffrey be able to keep peace between the girls . . . these girls who are his second, and most heartfelt, family?
It's a rollicking ride as the Penderwicks continue their unforgettable adventures in a story filled with laughs and joyfu

In short, a good story, but lacking some of the charm of the previous two books about the Penderwicks. ( )

This children's novel was probably a 3.5 for me. I tend to look at children's literature from the perspective I would have as a child. I would have LOVED this. There is so much warmth and joy amidst the conflict. Some of the plot is a little silly, and I had a hard time relating to the pressure the "Oldest Available Penderwick" felt to care for the family. After all, there WERE responsible adults in their lives. Still, I enjoyed the happy escapism I found in this story. ( )

I love spending time with these characters. The first book didn't entirely win me over, but the subsequent books have absolutely stolen my heart. I really hope there are more books to come. ( )

I haven't read this book in a while, but it was a very sweet tribute to childhood and found family. ( )

It's vacation time and the younger Penderwicks are headed to Maine with Aunt Claire. With Rosalind in NJ visiting a girlfriend, Skye is put in charge but feels inadequate. While Jane is researching love for her latest book, Batty has taken an interest in music. It won't be a boring two weeks in Pointe Mouette, the Penderwicks are in residence! Fun read. ( )
