Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The dynamics between Penny and her parents are spot-on, both in Henkes’s pared-down prose and his delicate watercolor-and-ink scenes.” Publishers Weekly
“The familiarity of Henkes’ mouse world, as well as expertly paced and controlled storytelling for new readers, mark this as a new classic, earning Penny a firm place alongside the not so creatively named Frog, Toad, Little Bear, and that celebrated Cat in the Hat. A doll of a beginning reader.” Kirkus Reviews
“Henkes continues to give children reasons to want to read, long after the satisfaction of learning how to has passed.” Horn Book (starred review)
