AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Penelope Kingston wants to be perfect. And most of the time she is good, sensible and calm. But nobody is perfect, and sometimes Penelope is bossy, angry and frustrated. It's like - and this is very weird - there are two Penelopes inside her. She is never quite sure who is going to be stronger on any given day. There's one part of Penelope's life that is definitely not perfect: she doesn't have a best friend. It was absolutely time that Penelope got a best friend of her own. It makes Penelope very anxious whenever they have to get into pairs at school. Everyone knows that being partners with the teacher means you are the odd one out. Penelope hopes that the new girl at school might be the one. But it's not easy finding a best friend, and it's not easy trying to be perfect. Sometimes, the best idea is to forget to try!'

    'Penelope Kingston is very, nearly, almost perfect – or rather she tries to be. She’s also very funny, although she doesn’t try to be. Come along with her as she finds a best friend, heads off on school camp and turns the fete into a roaring success! 

    From best-selling Australian author Chrissie Perry comes this practically perfect bind-up of the first three Penelope Perfect books. 

    Including Project Best FriendVery Private List for Camp Success and Lucky Jars & Broken Promises, the Penelope Perfect series celebrates the Hermione Grangers and Lisa Simpsons of the world. Girls who are kind and smart but somehow don't quite seem to fit in. Girls who worry, lose their tempers and sometimes feel anxious. And girls who are the most wonderful, talented and feisty people you've ever met!'
