2005 National Book Award winner, The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall, is a delightful throwback that will charm most readers. Remember when you first read Little Women? And how you came to know and love the individual sisters? And read late into the night to see what adventure happened to them next? Or how they got out of the last one? This book is innocent and sweet and completely enjoyable. Also to commend it: an absolute absence of heavy-handed moral lessons, magic, or serious social relevance.

I do remember the first time I read about Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy and sat under the covers with a flashlight to finish yet another chapter. I'll look forward to reading this book.
