Penelope Crumb is Mad at the Moon
"Penelope Crumb...channels the quirkiness of Ramona Quimby and the detective skills of Cam Jansen...Penelope will delight children and parents alike." --STARRED REVIEW, Shelf Awareness
Penelope Crumb is not having a very good week. First she accidentally comes to school dressed as an elephant (dress like an animal day is next week), and then in gym class she’s forced to square dance. With a boy who is known as Lippy Gordon because of how sweaty his lip is. All the time. Penelope is mortified. And then is extra mortified when she discovers that Lippy doesn’t want to dance with her either!
When Grandpa tells Penelope that he sings to the moon when he’s having trouble, Penelope grabs onto this plan. But sometimes you need more than the moon to fix things.
