I liked Penelope. It made me laugh. I hope the author keeps writing more books so I can read about Penelope's new baby cousin.

I work in an elementary school and brought Penelope, Age 10 to read to the third, fourth and fifth grades one day. Let me tell you, it was the most fun we had. The kids were laughing and were so involved. When reading time was over, the kids in each group begged me to keep reading. When we finished the book, they all wanted me to start over again. We loved it.

All the girls in my book club enjoyed your fun book. We can't wait to read more of them.

I was reading Penelope Age 10 while waiting for my son after a school event. I was laughing so hard that all of the other parents kept looking at me. I cannot wait to finish!

Your book encouraged me to write a journal. I loved it.

My mom suffers from Alzheimers and is in a small assisted living home. Whenever I visit her, I pull out one of your books to read to her. When other residents and even employees hear me read, they come over and listen in. Everyone enjoys hearing Penelope's stories. I look forward to sharing them with my grandchildren when they get older.

My daughter has a difficult time reading and does not enjoy it – until now, thanks to Penelope. I gave her a copy of your book and for the first time in her life, she sat down and read for hours. She was laughing and enjoying it. Now I don't even have to ask her to read. Every time we go shopping, the first place she wants to head to is the book section.
- Mom of Liah K – age 9- Oregon

Your books are really great. I like how your books relate so much to real life. Fifth grade girls can really relate.
- Kayla K. – Fifth grader, Ohio

My daughter and I are in a mother-daughter book club. We just finished reading Penelope Age 10. I grew up in Virginia and my dad worked at the mill and I had a simple life like Penelope. I could definitely relate and enjoyed the book tremendously! When will your next book come out?
- Jennifer B., Age 41 – Ohio

I picked up two of your books to share with my eleven year old twin granddaughters. We read one diary entry at a time and discuss it. We tell each other our own stories that relate to that entry. It has brought us closer and allowed my girls to confide in me and get to know me better. We all love our Penelope time.

Penelope's books are so awesome!
