My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful part is my dad’s JOKE. But in fact I am completely UNDREADFUL. It is just that sometimes my BRILLIANT IDEAS turn into DISASTERS. E.g. I didn’t mean for Dad to have to go to a CRUCIAL MEETING with a plastic flowerpot stuck on his head, I was only trying to invent a Patented Brain-Massaging Helmet. Plus how was I to know that you can’t do CHICKENPOX for show-and-tell, or go to a ballet class dressed as a blue cat, because even in disguise I am incredibly contagious!
Series: Penny Dreadful
My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The ‘Dreadful’ part 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.
