Overview

Penelope Crumb would LOVE Ramona Quimby! And might even name her eyebrow "Marge."

Penelope Crumb is no ordinary fourth grader. She carries around a red toolbox that used to belong to her father (who's been dead since Penelope was a baby), she keeps a list for the government chronicling the many ways in which her brother is turning into an alien, she helps her home-schooled neighbor Littie with her many projects--including the construction of a marshmallow helmet--and also, she can draw pretty much anything. So when her best friend Patsy has to draw a picture of Penelope for class, she attributes the big nose Patsy gives her to Patsy's poor art skills. But then Penelope finds out that it's true! She does have a big nose! Just like her Grandpa Felix, who's been gone from her life since before she can remember. What follows is a sweet and funny story--with tons of heart and hijinks-- about Penelope finding her grandpa and using her big nose--and his big nose--to make her family whole again.

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

I finished the book in two days! I could have finished reading it in one, but I had other things going on. I don't think the rest of the series is at my school library, but they are probably available at my public library. Littie was a fun character in the story. She has a great personality. This is a great book for a book report. You can dress up as Penelope, bring in a stuffed dog, and alien toy, a red tool box and more things. You could also dress up as Patsy Cline at her All-Star Kids performance if you have a cowgirl outfit! I can't wait to read the next books in the series!
