The Lovereading4Kids comment

Laugh-out-loud with the delightful and aptly named Penny Dreadful! Every child who has felt that awful things just unexpectedly happen around them will love Penny and catastrophes that she just can’t help! And none of them are her fault, of course. In these three short stories Penny comes up with some ingenious ideas as she tries to put right some of things she have happened. It’s easy to see why her father gave her the nickname - Penny Dreadful!

The first Penny Dreadful book, Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster, was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2011.

Synopsis

Penny Dreadful is Incredibly Contagious by Joanna Nadin

This title features three short stories in one book: Penny Dreadful and the Best Friend, in which Penny finds herself getting on unusually well with her arch-enemy Bridget Grimes; Penny Dreadful is Incredibly Contagious, in which a case of chicken pox and the ensuing time off school mean that Penny is forced to make her own entertainment, and Penny Dreadful becomes a Tycoon, in which Penny and Cosmo devise a helmet that can expand your brain, in order to win a TV game show.

Reviews

'Side-splittingly funny' - The Bookseller'

'There is never a dull moment when Penny Dreadful and her best friend Cosmo Moon Webster are around. Simply wonderful!' - First4Dads

'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
