    " I am reading it now and I LOVE IT! "

    " I read a few pages of this book about a week ago, but tonight I sat down after work and read the entire thing. Like I've said about most of the children's lit that I've read lately---this little book was precious. Sometimes it's just really nice to take a break from "grown-up books" so that I can get that warm mushy feel-good state that comes from reading warm mushy happy little children's stories. And that's precisely what this book did for me. "

    " I thought this has a clever title and picked it up. It would appeal to kids who have enjoyed the Clementine series or maybe the Penderwicks. It's not filled with sunshine and joy though as her parents are dealing with job loss and difficulties in their marriage. The main character does show strength and finds good friends so I think the message is a good one. The illustrations are lovely and the story kept me reading it aloud to my girls. "

    " What a fun book, I could not put it down and consequently read it over a 48 hour period. So, so enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deirdre | 1/9/2014

    " I enjoy Laurel Snyder's writing style very much. Her writing is accessible to many levels and ages; however, probably more girls than boys would like this book as well as Bigger Than a Breadbox. The characters have positive and noble traits, which they need to discover through wishes and magic. I would have loved to have had these books available when I was in fourth grade! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 1/5/2014

    " Good messages about appreciating what you have and not judging a book [person] by it's cover. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathyred | 1/5/2014

    " Penelope is rich, loved by her mostly-absent parents, lonely, and bored. So she makes a wish at a wishing well that life become more interesting, like in the books she reads. Is her wish what causes her father to quit his job, and the whole family to move to Thrush Junction, TN to a rambling house filled w/ characters, that her mother inherits? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie Forrest | 12/27/2013

    " I loved this book! The characters in this book are charming and I couldn't help but fall in love with them. Once I got started, I couldn't put it down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen Petro-Roy | 12/27/2013

    " I absolutely fell in love with this magical, enchanting book and loved each and every character that I met. Put this on a list of modern children's classics along with The Penderwicks. Just wonderful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Franki Sibberson | 12/6/2013

    " Loved PENNY DREADFUL by Laurel Snyder. I love the the characters. This felt a little like Polly Horvath but also a little like some of my favorite books from childhood--A LITTLE PRINCESS, THE SECRET GARDEN, etc. A great fun book all around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Skyler | 9/16/2013

    " I love it! This is a great book! I could NOT put it down. I usually talk on the bus but I read the whole way home! This is my favorite book. "

    " Two and a half stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 7/20/2013

    " This is my favorite book by Laurel Snyder. I have read it multiple times and I'm am an adult with no kids! The beauty of finding a simpler and meaningful life despite, or because of, economic hard times really resonates with me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 4/15/2013

    " Penny had enough money to do whatever she wanted until her father quit his job and they had to move from their mansion in The City, to a teeny-tiny town called Thrush Junction, TN. Her life will NEVER be the same again - thank goodness!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tiffany | 3/26/2013

    " This book started out okay but totally shocked me when a minor character who is a 4 year old boy had two moms. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire Scott | 2/6/2013

    " Cute, though not spectacular. Good for voracious girl readers, fans of The Penderwicks, The Railway Children, and other big-family-adventure stories, filled with allusions to classic kid lit. A perfect handsell at an indie bookstore in an upscale neighborhood, or a branch library with those readers. "
