The Penderwicks on Garden Street by Jeanne Birdsall

This book was the sequel to The Penderwicks. It was about the Penderwick adventures in the "Save Daddy plan". The save daddy plan is the plan to save Mr. Penderwick from ever having to get married by hooking him up on blind dates with horrific women. After just a few of these hilariously weird women Mr. Penderwick finds his own girlfriend, the mysterious Marianne. Meanwhile, a beautiful new neighbor, Iantha moves in with her adorable little boy, Ben. Who will get to hear wedding bells? Find out in this book.

This is an extremely enjoyable book. This book has the potential to become an instant classic. One of the best things about it was the extremes the author went to to make the book funny. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the book, it wasn't quite as good as the first one. The first Penderwick book had a certain magic about it that the second one didn't. I very much enjoyed the ending. The only bad thing about the entire book was that it was EXTREMLY predictable. I would recommend this book to my friends because all of my friends loved the first one.
