Overview


Penelope Crumb's best friend Patsy Cline Roberta Watson is becoming best friends with another girl in class, so Penelope decides she needs to win her back.  Compliments and presents fail—and Penelope is afraid she'll lose Patsy Cline forever, so she decides to swipe Patsy's necklace and start a secret museum to remember all the people she cares about, in case they leave her too.  But stealing turns out not to be the best plan, when Grandpa Felix calls the police about his missing camera, forcing Penelope to confess. Now she's lost both Patsy Cline AND her museum.  But in the end she makes a huge personal sacrifice to repair her friendship with Patsy and finds out that drawing pictures—what she likes to do best!—is a way to make a personal museum that doesn't involve any sort of stealing.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jennifer Lehmann
Penelope Crumb is misunderstood by her fourth grade teacher, Miss Stunkel. She never intends to be disruptive, but trouble always seems to find her anyway. When Penelope gets her best friend Patsy Cline Roberta Watson in trouble too, she begins to lose her friend. On a visit to the Portwaller History Museum, Penelope gets upset with her entire class and her teacher for skipping part of the museum. Since her father is Graveyard Dead, it is important to Penelope that every dead person be remembered. The trip to the museum inspires her to create her own museum so that she will remember the people who are important to her. Unfortunately, she begins collecting artifacts from people without asking, and soon finds herself in trouble for stealing. Many readers will understand Penelope's struggles to fit in with her friends and be understood by those in authority. The warmth and the humor of the characters make this an enjoyable read. All the problems caused by Penelope's good intentions work toward a satisfying conclusion, but it is frustrating to find the adults in the story at fault so frequently. Reviewer: Jennifer Lehmann
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Penelope again embarks on adventures that are both troublesome and outlandish. Since her father passed away, she has had a fascination with what she calls Graveyard Dead. On the school field trip to the town museum, where the other kids are more interested in the gift shop than in the artifacts, Penelope becomes enraged and vows to never let the important people in her life be forgotten. She also becomes jealous when her best friend, Patsy Cline, shares in the tradition of wearing best-friends-forever necklaces with Vera Bogg. Later, Patsy loses her necklace and Penelope finds it and adds it to the museum she has created in her closet so she will never forget. Penelope then goes about collecting things that are very important to the living people in her life. Now she is in trouble and relies on her older friend Littie to help her out of this predicament. While the writing and character development are very good, Penelope Crumb is just a little too quirky. With an unresolved ending between Penelope and Patsy and the fact that this fourth grader goes all over town alone, the book is less than satisfying. The occasional line drawings add little, and children unfamiliar with Penelope Crumb (Philomel, 2012) will have trouble connecting all the dots in this one. Purchase only if the first book is popular.—Nancy Jo Lambert, Ruth Borchardt Elementary, Plano, TX
Kirkus Reviews
Penelope Crumb is back with the same spunk and quirky narration that won readers over in her eponymous debut (2012). Still struggling with the reality that her dad is Graveyard Dead, Penelope must also contend with a rival for her best friend Patsy Cline's attention. New on the scene is perpetually-in-pink Vera Bogg, who wants to be Patsy's new BFF. When Penelope realizes that Patsy might actually prefer being Vera's best friend instead of hers, she finds herself coping with another potential loss. Grandpa Felix, dealing with some changes in his own life, dispenses wisdom such as "Nothing is forever" and "Sometimes you just have to let go." Inspired by a school field trip and fueled by her need to hold onto some part of all the people she loves, Penelope empties out her closet and makes it into her "Ultra Museum of Forget-Me-Notters." Kids will completely understand the odd items she chooses to include: her lost teeth (some with blood still on them!), strands of Patsy Cline's hair, her dad's shoehorn, her mother's self-portrait, her brother's drawings and Grandpa Felix's beloved camera, Alfred. Unfortunately her good intentions are misinterpreted as thefts or worse. But Penelope stays true to herself and learns how to fix what she can while adjusting her expectations for the future. Readers will root for and relate to this fresh-voiced young heroine who joins the likes of Ramona, Judy Moody and Clementine. (Fiction. 7-10)
