Rate this:
Nine years, five older siblings, a few beloved dogs, and an endless array of adventures--these are the things that have shaped Lydia's journey since readers first met her in The Penderwicks in Spring. Now it's summertime, and eleven-year-old Lydia is dancing at the bus stop, waiting for big sister Batty to get home from college. This is a very important dance and a very important wait because the two youngest sisters are about to arrive home to find out that the Penderwicks will all be returning to Arundel this summer, the place where it all began. And better still is the occasion: a good old-fashioned, homemade-by-Penderwicks wedding. The Penderwicks at Last is the final installment in the modern classic series.

such a sweet book it made me sad for all the children who won't know this innocence: playing outside, exploring, making up games.
there may never be more moffats or penderwicks

My 12 and now 13 year old granddaughter have been enjoying this series from the beginning. What wonderfully written books with full, rich characters, wonderful story lines and enough twists and turns (and laughter) to anyone interested. Ms. Birdsall uses such expressive words. We are sad to see the series end, but am looking forward to more from the Penderwicks. I highly recommend this series.

I skimmed over this book and thought it was great. I posted a complimentary comment. Then I actually read it, and my opinion changed entirely. All the other books were so great! And this one? Not. At. All. They don't even show the wedding! The most important part is not shown! There is no depth of character at all in Lydia, all she likes is dancing, and she doesn't like dancing classes! I went back to change my review, but I couldn't change the number of stars I gave it. It was a real disappointment. Then I found out I could change the number of stars!

Dearly loved all the Penderwick books and this one takes us back where it all started and launches a new generation of friendships. There are pets galore, wedding planning and more. . . Such an outstanding middle grade series!

I only have one word for this book: AWESOME! Unlike other books, this book has many important scenes. This book has just the right amount of story to it. If it was too short, then the story would probably have been a little boring. If it was too long, then the story would drag and the readers would eventually get tired of what the author is trying to explain. Sometimes I do get confused with who is who, with so many siblings and relatives, but always, in the end, it would become clear and making sense. This book is about friendship, trust, and love. This book would probably be appropriate for all ages, because it is understandable and the grammar isn't too hard. I recommend this book to be read, and I hope you would enjoy it too.

But the rest was awesome! Great conclusion!
