Product description

Penny’s name isn’t actually Penny Dreadful. The ‘Dreadful’ bit is her dad’s idea of a JOKE. But it isn’t true that she’s a bad person; it’s just that unlucky things seem to happen to her. After all, the DISASTER with Rooney, the class rat, might not have been so awful if not for Cosmo Moon Webster and his Amazing Maze. AND it definitely wasn’t Penny’s fault that the Patented Burglar Trap accidentally tripped Gran over, so her bone snapped. ALSO, Penny only took Barry the cat to hospital so he could revive Gran with the Power of Pets! How was she to know it would be a complete CATastrophe?”

The second heartwarming, hilarious caper starring Penny, written by acclaimed comic Joanna Nadin.
