Penny Dreadful is a Record Breaker

By Joanna Nadin

Published Oct 2012

Shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2012

My name is not actually Penny Dreadful.It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful bit is my dad’s JOKE. But I am definitely not dreadful…it’s just sometimes people don’t appreciate the brilliance of my ideas!

I mean, it was a BRILLIANT IDEA to hunt a VAMPIRE and Cosmo said Mr. Bentley-Bucket was only pretending to be human. Also Grandma Overall who does not see the BRIGHT SIDE needed cheering up, so I don’t know why she didn’t like her super-sparkly MAKEOVER. And the water spraying all over the kitchen was completely worth it because I ended up being a RECORD BREAKER!
