AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Penelope Kingston is determined not to feel anxious about going on school camp. On last year’s camp, Penelope had cried (only tears, not sobs) when a teacher made them climb a ridiculously steep and frightening hill. Penelope would never forgive herself if she did that again. To make sure she has a practically perfect camp this year, Penelope has written a (very private) list of rules. And what’s rule number one? No crying. Penelope is a whole year older now. And (more importantly) she now has her very own best friend to bunk with. This year is going to be totally different!' (Publication summary)

    '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!'
