Penny Dreadful is Incredibly Contagious

By Joanna Nadin

Published Nov 2012

My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful bit is my dad’s JOKE. But in fact I am completely UNDREADFUL. It is just that sometimes my BRILLIANT IDEAS turn into DISASTERS.

E.g. I didn’t mean for Dad to have to go to a CRUCIAL MEETING with a plastic flowerpot stuck on his head. I was only trying to invent a Patented Brain-Massaging Helmet. Plus how was I to know that you can’t do CHICKENPOX for show-and-tell, or go to ballet class dressed as a blue cat, because even in disguise I am INCREDIBLY CONTAGIOUS!
