    Petunia is a classic well worth passing on to a new generation

    Petunia has been one of my favorite characters since I was in kindergarten. I read this book over and over and always enjoyed Petunia's antics. It's an excellent book and children will enjoy both the gentle humor and the big BANG of an ending.
