Description

Penelope Crumb is no ordinary fouth grader. And when she discovers that she *gasp* has a big nose she's initially devastated. But when her mother lets her know that she has the same nose as her Grandpa, Penelope perks up. And then she perks up even more when she finds out that Grandpa isn't dead like she expected--he's just gone. And she decides that it's her job to find him. A sweet and funny story with tons of heart and hijinx about Penelope using her big nose to bring her family together.

Review quote

Praise for PENELOPE CRUMB "Fans of Clementine and Ramona will cheer as new friend Penelope finds what she is looking for."--Kirkus Reviews "Like such popular fourth-grade narrators as Amber Brown and Lucy Rose, Penelope Crumb has definite ideas and big dreams . . . ultimately, Penelope's desires to connect with her relatives (even the 14-year-old brother who has changed so much she considers him an alien) bring the Crumb family together in a sweet and satisfying way."--Booklist
