The Lovereading4Kids comment
Side-splittingly funny stories for young girls who are reading confidently. Penny Dreadful (not her real name) creates havoc wherever she goes and whatever she does! She 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. Joanna Nadin's Penny Dreadful is a wickedly funny creation and worthy contender to Horrid Henry.
Penny Dreadful is a Complete Catastrophe (Penny Dreadful Book 2) by Joanna Nadin
Penny Dreadful is a magnet for disaster. Starring in three brand-new stories, Penny creates mishap, mayhem and misadventure wherever she goes:
'Penny Dreadful and the Rat' – Penny is charged with looking after Rooney the class rat for the weekend to learn about responsibility. But when the only thing she’s responsible for is losing Rooney, and the class is overrun with rat babies thanks to Rooney’s secret replacement, she’s in big trouble - again.
'Penny Dreadful’s Show-and-Tell' – Penny has always wanted to win a gold star for show-and-tell, but strangely showing a dead wasp hasn’t done the trick. So she decides to dig for buried treasure and amazingly discovers a two-headed dinosaur skeleton! Only when her neighbour arrives back from holiday to discover that someone has dug up his beloved pets, he’s not happy at all...
'Penny Dreadful and the CATastrophe' – When Gran ends up in hospital on her birthday thanks to Penny’s patented burglar trap, Penny is determined to cheer her up with a visit from Barry the cat (and a half-eaten Battenberg cake). But Barry is not too keen on the idea – and neither is beady-eared Sister Goggins.
Get ready for a taste of destruction with this second 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
