about

What goes into a really good story? Only the best ingredients—a heroine, a hero, excitement, a little romance, and even a villain or two. They are all here, as Aunt Isabel and her niece concoct a delightful story within a story. Fun to read aloud, this book is a lively yarn, a visual treat, and a charming introduction—all in one.

Editorial Reviews

“Children will identify with bright-eyed, feisty Penelope. . . . An entertaining way to introduce [them] to the elements of storytelling.”—School Library Journal“All in all: an entertaining production.”—Kirkus Reviews“The droll, neatly executed watercolor illustrations are an integral part of the story. . . . A fine book to enjoy on its own merits, but it will also be useful for teachers.”—Booklist“Delicate watercolors brim with fairy-tale characters and atmosphere. . . . The diverting story-within-a-story is an inviting opportunity for youngsters to double their fun.”—Publishers Weekly
