Penny Pollard hates: pink dresses, Simone, twitty lavender bags, Annette Smurton (who has her own horse) and Jason Taylor. But she likes: horses, Mrs B (who is her 81-year-old best friend), collecting things (including horse shoes and swap cards), visiting cemeteries, and writing!



You can read all about Penny s hilarious adventures in the six books that make up this award-winning, best-selling, ever-popular series. From travels around the UK to a project on good manners, trying to avoid being a bridesmaid to finding ways to save her family home, Penny does it all!
