Item Description...
When Penny Derwood and her seventh-grade class tour a button factory, she accidentally gets involved in a mystery that she and her brother, Jack are determined to unravel. In their efforts to solve the mystery, they undergo a series of hilarious adventures and at the same time begin to learn something about teamwork, family unity, and accepting one another. The Peabody Series, named for the imaginary town of Peabody, Wisconsin, centers on a group of Christian young people who attend the same local church. Each book focuses on a new adventure that involves several members of the youth group. The characters in these books do not find quick solutions to their difficulties. Like all Christians, they struggle to grow, sometimes losing ground, but ultimately coming to a deeper knowledge of the Lord.

I must have reread this book 10 times as a kid  Jun 20, 2007
I was a voracious reader as a child...and still am. My mom wanted some books that were more Christian oriented and ordered this from BJU Press along with the Bracken series by Jeri Massi and a couple of other books. I instantly loved this book because it was funny and written from a girl's perspective I could relate to--a kind of tomboy.

I went to BJA and BJU, and I remember turning onto Wade Hampton Blvd for the first time and seeing The Mattress Store from the book in real life. Yeah, the town might be fake, but there really is a dusty old mattress store with the same drawing of a sleepy mattress. I think I was more excited about seeing that store than I could have been at meeting the celebrity du jour. In my 6 years at BJ, I kept a check on the back of the place to make sure it was ok. ;-)
Very Pleased  Mar 12, 2007
I had read this book as a kid (in about the 5th grade)
- I saw it available and HAD to have a copy -- I'm glad I did
The book was just as good as I remembered and my younger siblings fell in love with it as well.
The condition of the book was new and it arrived in a timely manner.

I am VERY PLEASED with this purchase from [...]
Octopi, Spies, and Mattress Surfing  Nov 17, 2006
Derwood, Inc. written by Jerri Massi and published by Bob Jones University Press is a gripping mystery novel told from a girl's point of view. Set in the imaginary town of Peabody, Wisconsin and in the backwoods of Ohio, the novel follows the lives of Penny and her brother Jack through incredible twists and turns. You will be gripping the edge of your seat as you read about a mysterious band of spies chasing a boy across America as he seeks his father. Nobody believes Penny and Jack as these amazing events unfold. It is up to them to help this lost boy against his venomous foe. Danger lurks at every turn. Through these events, the practical, and sensitive Penny and the resourceful, and driven Jack, come to respect, appreciate, and rely on each other more. With the help of trusted adults, an eccentric great aunt, and God, they are able to solve the mystery and save the day! To find out more about Jack and Annie and their astonishing adventures with octopi, spies, and mattress-surfing, read Derwood, Inc. one of a series of Peabody Adventures.
High Quality Entertainment  Oct 25, 2006
This is one of my all-time favorite books.
Funny, captivating, exciting. I generally am not impressed with Christian fiction, but this book is excellent.
My brothers who really didn't enjoy reading, loved this book as well.
Impressively well-written, and enjoyable  Mar 31, 2003
At first, this book appears to be more of a kids book, but I'm in my teens, and I still enjoy going back to peruse this book again. This is the story of Jack and Penny Derwood, brother and sister, who live in a mixed family of six kiddos altogether, and the misadventures they wind up having have.

The situations they encounter prove quite humorous, dangerous, and entertaining in either case. Whether escaping smugglers in an deserted warehouse, or catering to the Ladies' Auxiliary Missionary Fellowship Annual Luncheon Meeting while their mom is sick in the hospital, you'll certainly be amused and entertained.

This is actually two books in one, but for whatever reason, perhaps because the two are sort-of connected, they were blended. The style is enjoyable, the characters are well-developed, and I give the whole book high marks overall. It's a great read!
