Quotes & Awards

  • “The dynamics between Penny and her parents are spot-on, both in Henkes’s pared-down prose and his delicate watercolor-and-ink scenes.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The familiarity of Henkes’ mouse world, as well as expertly paced and controlled storytelling for new readers, mark this as a new classic, earning Penny a firm place alongside the not so creatively named Frog, Toad, Little Bear, and that celebrated Cat in the Hat. A doll of a beginning reader.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Henkes continues to give children reasons to want to read, long after the satisfaction of learning how to has passed.”

    Horn Book (starred review)

  • One of the Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books for Children in 2012
  • Selected for the Autumn 2012 Indie Next List for Children (Ages 4-8)
