Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster

By Joanna Nadin

Published Jun 2011

Penny Dreadful is a Magnet for Disaster.

My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful bit is my dad’s JOKE. But I do not see the funny side. Plus it is not even true that I am dreadful. It’s just that sometimes my BRILLIANT IDEAS don’t work out completely brilliantly. Like, I didn’t mean for my cousin to end up bald and covered in superglue, and I also didn’t mean to steal our neighbour’s dog and make him speak Russian. It’s not my fault, I can’t help it – I’m just a MAGNET for DISASTER.

A mastermind of mischief making.
