Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster, Paperback / softback Book

Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Jess Mikhail

Part of the Penny Dreadful series

Paperback / softback


My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The 'Dreadful' bit is my dad's JOKE. But I do not see the funny side. Plus it is not even true that I am dreadful. It's just that sometimes my BRILLIANT IDEAS don't work out completely brilliantly.

Like, I didn't mean for my cousin to end up bald and covered in superglue, and I also didn't mean to steal our neighbour's dog and make him speak Russian...

It is not my fault. I can't help it - I'm just a Magnet for Disaster. Three fantastically funny Penny Dreadful adventures in one fab book!

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize.
