Penelope Crumb by Shawn Stout

 Penelope Crumb is no ordinary fouth grader. And when she discovers that she *gasp* has a big nose she's initially devastated. But when her mother lets her know that she has the same nose as her Grandpa, Penelope perks up. And then she perks up even more when she finds out that Grandpa isn't dead like she expected—he's just gone. And she decides that it's her job to find him. A sweet and funny story with tons of heart and hijinx about Penelope using her big nose to bring her family together.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher


“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!
