Penny Dreadful (is a Complete Catastrophe)


Author – Joanna Nadin

Age – 7+

Penny Jones is called Penny Dreadful by her father as she is a magnet for Disaster. Well meaning Penny tells 3 stories in this hilarious book about losing the class rat, taking a small 2 headed dinosaur skeleton to school for show and tell and trying to cheer up her gran in hospital by taking her cat barney to visit – all with disastrous results.

I loved the way Penny tells the story in great big long sentences hardly without a breath just like many under 10 year old girls do!
Penny Dreadful is hilarious with great illustrations that add to the stories.

This is the 2nd in the Penny Dread full series which doesn’t have to be read in order.

(Humour, Animals, Family, Disaster, School, Series)
