Return to the place where it all began for a Penderwick wedding—and the finale to a National Book Award winning and New York Times bestselling series!

Lydia's older sister Rosalind is getting married and in the most perfect setting—Arundel! Now, the entire family is going back to the spot where they met their "honorary brother" Jeffrey and had endless adventures!

And sure enough, the adventures do not stop. There are close calls involving almost too many dogs to count, dances at bus stops. and the reappearance of a longtime enemy. But most of all, there are six siblings with a bond that's as unshakeable as ever.

The Penderwicks at Last may be the end of a cherished series, but the family we love will never be forgotten.

About the Author

Jeanne Birdsall is the National Book Award–winning author of the children's book The Penderwicks and its sequel, The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, both of which were also New York Times bestsellers. She grew up in the suburbs west of Philadelphia, where she attended wonderful public schools. Although Birdsall first decided to become a writer when she was 10 years old, it took her until she was 41 to get started. In the years in between, Birdsall had many strange jobs to support herself while working hard as a photographer. Birdsall's photographs are included in the permanent collections of museums, including the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Art Museum. She lives with her husband in Northampton, Massachusetts. Their house is old and comfortable, full of unruly animals, and surrounded by gardens.

Read an Excerpt

Lydia believed in dancing wherever she could--on sidewalks, in supermarket aisles, libraries, swimming pools, parking lots. Today her stage was a bench at the bus stop. It was a challenge dancing on something so narrow, but Lydia took measures to keep from falling--small steps, no leaps, and heavy reliance on upper-body motion.

Overall the book was pretty good, but it would have been way better if it had been told from the older sisters' points of view. With this being the final book, I thought it was weird that the story is told from a character the readers didn't know. I also didn't like how the story only revolved around Lydia and what Lydia was doing, whereas the other books included all of the sisters. ALSO who is this Dusek guy, and why is he marrying sky instead of Jeffrey. The Jeffrey and Batty thing was weird. Sadly, I was disappointed by this book and it crushes me that this is the last installment.
