My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful bit is my dad’s JOKE. But I do not mean to be dreadful – in fact I am actually trying to turn over a new leaf.
You see, sawing Bridget Grimes in half for the school show was supposed to be a GOOD THING. And I didn’t mean to get up to any SHENANIGANS on the school trip – it’s not my fault I was CURSED by a mummy. Plus I worked extra especially hard on the CAKE OF DREAMS for mum’s birthday. but somehow it still turned into a HUGE CALAMITY.
