The Lovereading4Kids comment
March 2012 Book of the Month. Wherever Penny goes chaos tends to ensue particularly when she tries to put all her 'brilliant ideas' into practice! With four great stories in this, the third of the Penny Dreadful titles there will be no shortage of laugh-out-loud fun to enjoy. Interspersed throughout with some great black and white illustrations, this is sure to appeal greatly to children aged 6+.
But don't just take our word for it - this is what some readers think:
'Penny Dreadful stories are very exciting. It is a brilliant series' Polly, aged 10
'I wanted to read on and on and on...it was soooo good' Matt, aged 8 (yes boys love Penny Dreadful too)
'I liked Penny because she's naughty, but in a way she is also funny' Millie, aged 8
'A hilariously brilliant read' Anastasia, aged 11
' I think Penny Dreadful is, well, dreadfully funny. PS I'm turning a little dreadful too' Islay, aged 8
I love Penny Dreadful, she is brilliant and very funny' Iona, aged 6
The first Penny Dreadful book, Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster, was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011. Click here to see the whole series.
Penny Dreadful Causes a Kerfuffle (Penny Dreadful Book 3) by Joanna Nadin
Starring in three more brilliant stories, Penny creates mishap, mayhem and misadventure wherever she goes.
Penny Dreadful Does Her Best - After Bridget Grimes shows off her collection of Brownie badges in assembly, Penny and Cosmo decide that they are also going to do their best and try to help. But when their attempt to help out with the washing ends in bubbles, bedlam, and lots of pink clothes, they discover that it might be best not to be helpful all of the time...
Penny Dreadful and the Secret Ingredient - Penny's big sister Daisy is in love with Joshua Bottomley, and it's all because of her hormones. So Penny and Cosmo decide to invent their own hormones using Cosmo's chemistry set, lots of things from the kitchen cupboards and an extra-special secret ingredient - with disastrous results.
Penny Dreadful and the New Girl - When Penny's headmaster tells her class that a new girl with a famous dad is joining the school, Penny is determined to be her best friend. But one collaborative art project, a dead pigeon and a visit from the fire brigade later, things haven't quite gone to plan... Get ready for a taste of destruction with Penny's third 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.
'A wickedly funny new creation and worthy contender to Horrid Henry.' - The Bookseller
"Penelope Jones is pretty much the kind of child you might visualize if asked to imagine the result of Horrid Henry and Charlie’s little sister Lola growing up and starting a family together.” - Teach Primary Magazine
“Three hilarious adventures that will amuse boys and girls alike.” – Ed on the Web
“Chortlingly good fun, this girl would give Horrid Henry a run for his money.” - The Evening Echo
