When the ever-enthusiastic and high-spirited Penny Pollard accompanies her friend Alistair and his mum (a long-suffering chaperone) on a tour of the United Kingdom, the results are hilariously predictable!



Penny proves herself to be a very busy and unusual tourist as she looks for the Loch Ness monster, works out the true meaning of Stonehenge, dabbles in a bit of match-making and makes new friends from different parts of the world. Another wonderfully funny Penny Pollard tale in a great new format.

Robin Klein

Robin Klein was born 28 February 1936 in Kempsey, New South Wales into a family of nine children. Leaving school at age 15, Klein worked several jobs before becoming established as a writer, having her first story published at age 16.

She would go on to write more than 40 books, including Hating Alison Ashley (adapted into a feature film starring Delta Goodrem in 2005), Halfway Across the Galaxy and Turn Left (adapted into a television series for the Seven Network in 1992), and Came Back to Show You I Could Fly (adapted into a film directed by Richard Lowenstein in 1993).

Klein's books are hugely celebrated, having won the CBCA Children's Book of the Year Award in both the Younger Readers and the Older Readers categories, as well as a Human Rights Award for Literature in 1989 for Came Back to Show You I Could Fly. Klein is widely considered one of Australia's most prolific and beloved YA authors.
