LoveReading View on Penny Dreadful is a Record Breaker

February 2013 Book of the Month 

Three lively stories for newly- confident readers matched by eye-catching illustrations are gathered up in this one volume.  Of course, Dreadful is not Penny’s real name but it fits her well, as these stories about how she decides to track down a vampire, give her miserable neighbour a makeover and ends up being a record breaker easily demonstrate. Attractively presented and fun to read.

Penny Dreadful is a Record Breaker Synopsis

Three hilarious short stories in one book: Penny Dreadful versus the Vampire, in which Penny is worried about growing up to be a clown and decides to embark on a career as a vampire hunter instead; Penny Dreadful Looks on the Bright Side, in which miserable Grandma Grimshaw comes to stay and Penny and her best friend Cosmo appeal to her softer side, and Penny Dreadful and the World Record, in which Penny attempts to get her name in the record books.
