The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
A bundle of awfulness! Penny Dreadful (not her real name) has an unfortunate habit of creating mayhem wherever she goes and whatever she does! Penny has some really brilliant ideas. The only trouble is, they often seem to go horribly wrong… Propelled by a great sense of humour, these highly-illustrated stories are perfect for anyone who enjoys a laugh.
Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster by Joanna Nadin
Penny Dreadful is a magnet for disaster. Starring in her first three stories, Penny creates mishap, mayhem and misadventure wherever she goes. Penny Dreadful becomes a Hairdresser - Penny's convinced her stint as a 'haredresser' will quickly earn her enough money to pay back her debt to her mum. Armed with a Silent Strimmer, superglue, and under the watchful supervision of a sleeping Gran, what could possibly go wrong? Penny Dreadful and the Faithful Sidekick - After watching Animal SOS, Penny decides she needs a faithful sidekick to train. The 'abandoned' dog outside the post office will have to do - but will an incident with a baby monitor, a tutu, and a Russian au pair land them in the doghouse? Penny Dreadful and the School Inspector - Mr Schumann, the headmaster, is keeping a close eye on the mischief-making Penny Dreadful during the school inspector's visit. But when Penny's best efforts to behave result in a mishap with a Jedi outfit and a swarm of locusts, is it the end for Penny's school. Get ready for a taste of destruction with this side-splitting trio of tales of trouble. Penny Dreadful would have even Minnie the Minx running for cover. Nothing is safe when she's around.
"Don't miss the comic genius that is Penny Dreadful, a wickedly funny new creation and worthy contender to Horrid Henry." - The Bookseller
