The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall
"The Penderwicks" is a story about "Four sisters,Two Rabbits,and A Very Interesting Boy".
The Penderwicks were looking forward to their yearly summer vacation. The beach house that they normally rented was sold at the last minute. Just when they thought that they wouldn't find a place for the summer, Mr. Penderwick found out from a friend that a cottage in the mountains was available.
This story takes the family on a vacation that they will never forget. They meet the caretaker of the gardens (Cagney) who owns two rabbits, and the Jeffrey, son of wealthy Mrs. Tifton who owns the grounds that the cottage is on.
The girls bond with Jeffery and try to help him when his mother and her friend Dexter, try to send Jeffery to a boarding school.
Enjoy this lighthearted story to see if they succeed.
