The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall.
Alfred A. Knopf/Random House: NY, 2005.

Three weeks at a cottage in the Berkshires for the Penderwick girls and their Hound and dad! The cottage is lovelier than they could imagine and on the grounds of a mansion - with a lonely boy. It's the best time Jeffrey has had - ever. His mother is not thrilled with the wildness of his new companions. The five children get into one scrape after another, and the girls' influence turns out to be better than Mrs. Tifton (Jeffrey's mother) will admit.

This light-hearted summer romp was the recommendation of my 9 year old son. There's lots of fun with the Penderwicks' antics and a touching ending concerning Jeffrey's future.
