“The Penderwicks are surely one of the most memorable families in the world of recent children's books. Now, Skye, Jane, Batty, and Hound are off to spend two weeks with their Aunt Claire at Birches, a house on the Maine coast. Skye worries that with her as OAP (Oldest Available Penderwick), the vacation is sure to be a disaster. Instead, what awaits is a summer filled with friends old and new, surprising discoveries, and lots of adventures! A seal serenade, a golf ball collection, a boy on a skateboard, and a boisterous dog all play a part in an unforgettable vacation. I can't wait for the next book!”
