Synopsis

Penny Dreadful Cooks Up a Calamity (Penny Dreadful Book 4) by Joanna Nadin

Penny Dreadful Turns Over a New Leaf

When Penny can’t afford to buy her mum a birthday present (and wishing for money almost never works), Cosmo has a BRILLIANT IDEA, which is apparently not so brilliant… However, Penny and Cosmo soon learn that a present made with LOVE, rather than one bought with money, can help make wishes come true, even in the most unexpected of ways!

Reviews

'Side-splittingly funny' - The Bookseller; 'Can not be read with a straight face' - Sarah's Book Reviews; 'There is never a dull moment when Penny Dreadful and her best friend Cosmo Moon Webster are around. Simply wonderful!' - First4Dads; 'Don't miss the comic genius that is Penny Dreadful, a wickedly funny new creation and worthy contender to Horrid Henry' - The Bookseller; 'A truly apt title for a book that features the escapades of a small, well-meaning girl whose good intentions create havoc... This is a very funny book for newly independent readers' - The Irish Examiner; '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' - Just Imagine Story Centre'
