Description

What goes into a really good story? Only the best ingredients--a heroine, a hero, excitement, a little romance, and even a villain or two. They are all here, as Aunt Isabel and her niece concoct a delightful story within a story. Fun to read aloud, this book is a lively yarn, a visual treat, and a charming introduction--all in one.

Review quote

"Children will identify with bright-eyed, feisty Penelope. . . . An entertaining way to introduce [them] to the elements of storytelling."--School Library Journal

"All in all: an entertaining production."--Kirkus Reviews

"The droll, neatly executed watercolor illustrations are an integral part of the story. . . . A fine book to enjoy on its own merits, but it will also be useful for teachers."--Booklist
