What did you guys think of the Penderwicks on Gardam Street, the 2nd book in the series?


message 2: by Libby (new)

Libby Seibert (libblet22) | 2 comments I'm a huge fan of Gardam Street! I love the way Jeanne seamlessly connected the 2 books and continued the story. I also loved the way Batty really played a more substantial role in the story. The characters are so realistic, I can see pieces of myself or friends in each of them.

Mandy (mandypoo) I admit that when I first bought the book I was very excited and very hesitant because I loved the first so much. I was thrilled with the end product though: the same classic style of writing, how the adventure would continue even on their street at home, and how the story flowed right from Arundal to Gardam Street. What I really love about the book is that it's written in the same way that classics like Anne Of Green Gables were written. Like Libby said- the characters are so realistic! I love each of those girls and can see myself living on their street!

I agree - I loved the book also. I just love the way Jeanne Birdsall's writing is when I read it. Whenever I read either of the two books, I get this warm, cozy Penderwick-feel.
Plus, Bug Man was made of awesome. That was totally unexpected.
