Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster launches a new character from Usborne and combines three tales in one book.

These are short, funny, standalone stories following Penelope Jones through a catalogue of disasters, whether the dog she befriends swallows the baby monitor or the school inspector is due or she tries to cut her cousin's hair.

Her dad calls her Penny Dreadful because of the situations she gets caught up in.

With strong storylines, these are easy-flowing tales that are great to read aloud, perfect as well for the 6+ reader to get stuck into. The fun and funky illustrations also help the stories along. Penny Dreadful will appeal to fans of Horrid Henry.
